Integral City 4.0: Co-Creating the Future of Cities
It’s not too late to register and join us in Findhorn, Scotland, April 10-14, 2018.
You are invited to amplify your contributions to Gaia’s wellbeing with Integral City’s growing constellation by joining us at Findhorn Scotland, (arriving 4pm) April 10- 14 (departing morning), 2018. Together, as 4 Voices of the City (Business, Citizens, City Managers, Civil Society) we will explore: Integral City 4.0: Co-creating the Future of Cities Now.
This workshop will give us the opportunity to go more deeply into the Integral City frameworks, tools, practices and processes that we have shared with these partner organizations in 2017:
· We have presented twice through the impressive faculties of Tamarack Institute Canada on Collective Impact and the Cities of the Future.
· We have spent a week with the team of Hub Co-Evolucio in Reus and Tarragona, Catalonia, Co-Creating Cities of the Future Now and had the chance to meet city experts from Finland, UK, Catalonia, Italy +++
· I was in Russia for more than a week working with Living Cities Russia witnessing and catalyzing hundreds of cities awakening across this immense nation (marking a new stage of human Evolution 100 years after an earth-changing revolution). In addition, we were invited to speak twice at Skolkovo to more than 50 city teams and 300 Mayors through the Foundation of Monocities (as well as visiting with practitioners of Integral City principles in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and Nizhny Novgorod).
It will be exciting and inspiring spending time with Integral City practitioners and others who sense the power of cities to accelerate our collective intelligence not only with individuals and organizations but on behalf of eco-regions, nations and all of Gaia.
So, we hope you will join the Integral City community of practice – from Australia, Russia, Spain, France, Netherlands, UK – and others of like mind/heart/body/spirit in Findhorn. You will get the chance to test-drive a new paradigm for the city that the Russians so keenly recognize can make cities fully Alive. You will receive resources to substantiate the theory and science behind Integral City – plus Action Research designs for practices and processes – and Navigation Tools for aligning resources, designing dashboards and tracking impact. These will enable you to integrate Integral City resources into your own work and apply them with local intelligence in your own human hives.
This will be Integral City’s first workshop delivered in our new location in Findhorn, Scotland. (see article above). It is a special place for discovering the sacred relationship that lies at the heart of the Integral City Master Code: caring for self, others, place and planet. Findhorn hasn’t just talked about this learning journey, but has made a path for all of us, by actually walking it for 55 years. Findhorn holds the impulse of the New Story for the Earth. Come join us to write the New Story for the City – our Human Hives in service to all life on Gaia.
You can get all the information on the workshop from the Findhorn website and apply here: Integral City 4.0. We hope you will put your name on the last few seats and join an intimate circle of 30 international participants.
I look forward to seeing you soon!

Integral City Constellation – Upcoming Events
Tamarack Institute Launches 2 City Change Maker Programs
Tamarack shares two upcoming learning opportunities to accelerate your impact in the city.
Adaptive Leadership Masterclass Series
We are excited to announce a new Masterclass Series that will be taking place from May 23-29 in five cities across Canada. Adaptive Leadership for Collaborative Impact will be hosted by Liz Skelton, Director of Collaboration for Impact based in Australia, and Liz Weaver, Co-CEO of the Tamarack Institute.
This one day Masterclass will equip you with practical and effective skills that will help you and your teams collaborate better – deal with conflict, challenge old ways of working, respond to diverse views, create shared meaning, and plan for the future – all while working together to make a collective impact. Participants of this Masterclass will learn how to apply adaptive leadership principles and practices to their collaborative initiative while demonstrating its relevance and application to system, organisational, community and personal challenges.
Cities Innovating to Reduce Poverty
We welcome you to join us for the Cities Innovating to Reduce Poverty summit (Western Canada), hosted by Tamarack’s Vibrant Communities and the City of Vancouver, from June 12-13, 2018 in Vancouver, BC. This event will elevate conversations about innovation in poverty reduction and will feature the unique role of city, provincial and federal strategies. Come hear fabulous speakers, join experiential tours and work together in interactive workshops all in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
We are at a unique moment in history in which cities, provinces and our federal government are all converging with independent, yet interrelated, poverty reduction strategies. Cities Innovating to Reduce Poverty will facilitate learning and dialogue across sectors, harness the distinctive synergies of today’s poverty reduction movement, and take our collective understanding of innovation in poverty reduction to the next level.
This summit will bring together more than 25 cities from Western Canada and beyond committed to ending poverty, and will host representatives from all orders of government, business leaders, not for profit change makers, and people with lived/living experience of poverty. Together, we will celebrate our successes, and will co-generate innovative solutions to eliminating poverty nationwide.

Take part HERE.
April 2018 is the 48th Anniversary of Earth Month®. People from all over the globe have shared their input on this year’s theme. Many from all age groups and backgrounds have one common thread to share: with all the advancements over the years many are still living in the dark as to our total environment; lacking simple awareness of issues and a direction to take. This is in part due to the increase in population density, industrialization, climate change, and apathy.
For these and many more reasons, the Earth Month Network has developed this year’s theme as: “Plastic Pollution”
We will examine various forms of plastic pollution in both fresh and salt waters and other areas; the harm it causes to our precious environment and ultimately human health.
