Imagine Durant has created a bold invitation to the 4 Voices of Durant Oklahoma, USA to imagine a vision for the future and develop the strategies to implement it.

Building on the economic boom of gaming tourism, and their own journeys as integrally informed leaders, the President of First United Bank and the (now) Chief of the Choctaw Nation, invited Integral City to visit Durant in 2013 and make a proposal for a community development process that would grow community-wide support from grassroots participation.

A Formation Team created in 2014, hired a part-time coordinator and commenced a series of presentations to Civil Society groups, collecting survey data that started to paint a picture of Durant’s values. With evidence for expanding support, the Team, framed a partnership with the Chamber of Commerce to provide an office; created a not-for-profit organization; formed a Board of Directors (from the 4 Voices of Durant); and hired an Executive Director – all for lift-off in January 2015.

Demonstrating commitment, collaboration, and leveraging Integral intelligences (also being taught as organizational development in the bank and Choctaw organizations) Imagine Durant is the natural winner of the Meshworkers of the Year Award, 2015.

The practice of Meshworking is usually considered to be an advanced alignment of stakeholders, objectives, goals and activities in service to a superordinate goal.

Meshworking intelligence creates a “meshwork” by weaving together the best of two operating systems — one that self-organizes, and one that replicates hierarchical structures. The resulting meshwork creates and aligns complex responsive structures and systems that flex and flow.

Imagine Durant has systematically documented the process, results and interconnections amongst a series of three Dialogues on the Economy and the Community. Imagine Durant brought together 24 Thought Leaders, 39 Community Members and 24 Policy Makers to learn what was most important to the community. From the contacts made through these representatives of the 4 Voices of the city, it is estimated that Imagine Durant touched thousands of Durant stakeholders – including all of the councilors of City Hall and other governance systems in the County, State and Choctaw Nation; many of the 48 Civil Society organizations; many of the hundreds of highschool and university faculty and students; and all the key businesses of the city (and their customers).

Imagine Durant Harvest Reports for all 3 Dialogues are available on the Imagine Durant website and form an important contribution to Integral City research and development.

The 2015 Dialogues establish a foundation for two subsequent Dialogue series scheduled to be held in 2016 on:

  • Health and the Environment
  • Education and Culture

As Imagine Durant has reached out to the 4 Voices of the city, it is obvious that an enormous value of meshworking is that it embraces both the realms of the subjective inner lives of the 4 Voices and the intersubjective cultures that have a history embedded deeply in both Native American and non-Native American stories.

At the same time Imagine Durant has acted on an “early win” idea from the first Dialogue and spawned a parallel project in a cross-city walking trail – now called Nowa Oka – that has won the support of a grant for planning the trail, from National Parks.

The commitment to taking the time to Creating Value through defining the purpose, vision and interconnections amongst these stories means that when Durant shifts into the future stage of Realizing Values, it will be able to design with assurance that it has alignment and coherence to the city’s Vision when it invests in tangible structures.

Imagine Durant’s meshworking intelligences are actively contributing to engagement of three levels of government, influencing city change and impacting community connections.  Integral City is proud to award Imagine Durant the Meshworker of the Year Award, 2015.

On April 17-19, 2015, Imagine Durant along with the Integral City team convened a dialogue where community thought leaders met to exchange and brainstorm possibilities for the future of Durant, Oklahoma. Their special focus was on the Economy and Community of Durant.

Those present pulled inspiration from their surroundings at the historical Three Valley Museum, located in downtown Durant. Twenty-four Durant thought leaders and community members from a wide variety of organizations, businesses and industries took time from their family and friends to share their stories, hopes, concerns, and visions for the city of Durant, Oklahoma.

The dialogue began with reflections among participants over an evening meal where they each shared stories of their personal connection with the community. Their affection for the small town atmosphere that has grown tremendously over the past 20 years was evident. One told of how he attended college at Southeastern Oklahoma State University (SE) over 30 years ago and fell in love with the town and the people. “It reminds me of Mayberry”.

At the Integral Theory Conference 2013,  Integral city presented our (award-winning!!) paper and session on City‐Zen‐Tricity:
 A 
Fractal 
Non‐Local 
Leap
 Toward
 Kosmocentricity
 Taken
 with
 Integral
 Kosmopolitans
 on
 an
 Evolutionary
 Mission.

Learning Lhabitat

Learning Lhabitat

Going beyond merely presenting the paper (see the Abstract below) Integral City Stewards, Marilyn Hamilton and Beth Sanders, with Alia Aurami … facilitated a Learning Lhabitat for participants to learn about the 4 Voices of the City. The following 4 Blogs will share how each voice saw themselves – and how each voice learned about the other voices in the Integral City Quadrants – Cityzen UL); Civic Manager (UR), Civil Society (LL); Business (LR).

After having worked in small groups, the closing circle of 4 City Voices shared that they gained profound insights about the voices that they don’t normally occupy.

Beth Sanders captured the essence of the participant sharings from the Closing Circle with this poem:

Integral City Breath

Overwhelming value
in balance, stepping
in to a sense of city
in community
where the subtle
and not so subtle
colour breathes

in

with the interior unstuck
voices in dialogue
consciously diverse
explore, appreciatively
the beauty of uniqueness
of an integral city technology
of evolutionary role
perspectives
richly
flowing

out

Abstract of Paper

Marilyn Hamilton, joined by Beth Sanders,  recorded the story of a global month-long webinar and action research inquiry about a new operating system for the city – a Director’s cut of how a multi-national-gender-generational team unfolded an evolutionary mission using Integral City’s master code: “take care of self, other and place”. We revealed what it takes to operationalize a Kosmocentric vision for a conference: non-local partnership, worldcentric curriculum development and city-centric relationships. Kosmopolitans unveil the collective intelligence that emerged at every stage of the project and that is now emerging local and online Learning habitats. You may order the mp3 recording from the ITC2013 website (and/or access the presentation paper there and in the forthcoming Journal of Integral Theory and Practice – where it will be published.)

July Greetings, Integral City-zens and Friends of Integral City  

Today’s Integral City Sparkies for City Co-Creators:

Architect Christopher Alexander is experimenting with the “Phenomenon of Life,” co-designing living worlds where building centers, hulls and space are co-created with the stakeholders and future users of the buildings. He and his team are doing this with everyone from poor Mexican workers, to Japanese university students, to groups of house owners in rural and highly urbanized community settings.

Hamilton, M., 2008, Integral City: Evolutionary Intelligences for the Human Hive, p.156

How do we design the city so that I, WE, IT and ITS can co-exist in a vibrant way?

 

We invite you to help us co-create the Future of the City conference by taking 10 minutes to complete this survey: https://www.jitsulab.com/197/0065/The Future of the City Survey. Thanks for returning it by July 15.

Below some of the questions that provoke, engage, question and cross connect co-creators of the Future of the Human Hive!!! We are building a huge excitement and momentum as we ask them with everyone we encounter – in person, online, internationally, through the Blog, in Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.   Let us know what are your burning questions for how to co-exist in the city on our planet of cities?

 

What role are cities playing, as 2012 shifts through the longest/shortest days of its year (depending on your location on the planet)?

  • How are cities surviving the turbulence of life everywhere? How do  cities adapt to polarities of shadow and light in constant play?
  • In the shadows, how do cities survive the misery of the Syrian war, the seeming futility of the EU economic tactics, the searing heat in eastern North America or the disappointment of Rio+20?
  • In the light, what are the implications for cities of the discovery of the Higgs-Boson particle (and the promise of deep understanding of dark energy and dark matter)? What does it mean for cities that human lifecycles are extending beyond 100 years?  What are the lessons for cities about the densifying connections emerging from social media that defy all traditional political assumptions in places like Rangoon, Cairo and Montreal?

How does 2012 call forth new paradigms in just about every sphere of knowledge we care to examine?

  • Where is the kiva for the city where new conversations about city wellbeing can engage City-Zens with scientists, artists, designers, practitioners and faith leaders?
  • How can we discover a new paradigm for the city together? How might we co-create new solutions to: the city’s relationship with its eco-region, indigenous peoples and immigrants from the four corners of the globe; the city’s access to and use of energy, water and food; and the maturing of the city’s collective intelligence?

With more than 50% of people living in cities, how are they the seed pods for the human species where intentions, actions, relationships and productive output collide and co-create our collective habitats?

  • What shifts in our thinking are needed to not only track the quantities of all these interactions, but also to notice the quality and complexity of these exchanges?
  • We wonder, if we take the pulse of more than 50% of humanity in city activity, can we track each city’s essential wellbeing? How does each city’s capacity to achieve wellbeing simultaneously become its measure of resilience?
  • How do cities develop new governance to interact sustainably on a planet of cities?

We invite you to become part of the Brain Trust to design an eLaboratory where we can research new capacities for an Integral City. Start by giving us your ideas and suggestions here: https://www.jitsulab.com/197/0065/The Future of the City Survey

May Greetings, Integral City-zens and Friends of Integral City     Today’s Integral City Sparkie for the City Mind:
A city which can merely feed, clothe and shelter its citizens lacks the intelligence to sustain itself, because the intelligence for sustainability comes from a commitment to learning about self, others and our shared life conditions.  Hamilton, M., 2008, Integral City: Evolutionary Intelligences for the Human Hive, p.175

Donations at the door

Limited Seating: pre-register sdi@integralcity.com

Why do people make such different decisions, given the same information and opportunities?  How do values develop and spread among people?  How can we bring our diverse ways of thinking to create a community that feels good to all of us? 

Spiral Dynamics integral is a model for people who think about complex systems – like neighbourhoods, communities, and organizations.  It is a way of understanding the different values or “world views” that people use to make their decisions.  Using Spiral Dynamics integral, leaders can reduce the tensions in those differences, and create positive change in social and business systems.  

The Spiral Dynamics integral model helps us understand our next steps towards creating a constructive community atmosphere in a changing situation―wherever we are in our work at this moment. It shows us what’s working, what’s blocking progress, and how we can dream for our future.

Learn how communities, associations and professionals from Halifax, First Nations, Winnipeg, Abbotsford, Creative City, New Westminster, the Netherlands, UK and South Africa have used Spiral Dynamics integral for practical solutions.

*10. FALL PREVIEW

2009 STATE OF THE WORLD FORUM: Mobilizing to Save Civilization – A Ten Year Plan to Address Climate Change
November 12-14, 2009 in Washington D.C.

Registration and Details: http://www.worldforum.org/2009conference-overview.htm

 

This Forum will bring attention to the critical issue of climate change and to catalyze a ten year plan to green our economies that the State of the World Forum is convening a three day conference November 12-14, 2009 in Washington D.C. The 2009 Forum will launch a ten year campaign that will meet in a different world city each year.
Our intention is to catalyze a demand for new standards of moral leadership. Our goal is to empower people everywhere, personally and collectively, to create greener and more resilient lifestyles and communities.  In order to realize this plan we are bringing international thought leaders, specialists and activists together to begin work on what a ten year plan to green our economies would actually look like, even as we appeal to our governments to take immediate and decisive action.
We are in a time of enormous transition, when the present is crumbling right from under our feet, but the future is not quite clear enough for us to grasp. What is needed is imagination and a sense of possibility to bridge the gap between present and future.

The State of the World Forum is committed to working with partners worldwide to catalyzing the imagination needed and the collaboration required to both envision and implement the world we must fashion as humanity moves beyond the War on Terror into the next phase of human development. Joining together to make this commitment can generate a veritable renaissance of international solidarity and good will.

Please join us in this global initiative to change the course of history.
