we can be wiser than any of us can be alone.
We need to know how to tap that wisdom.
Healthy communities, institutions and societies -- perhaps even
our collective survival -- depend on our ability to organize our
collective affairs more wisely, in tune with each other and nature.
This ability to wisely organize our lives together -- all of us
being wiser together than any of us could be alone -- we call co-intelligence.
Co-intelligence is diverse people working really well together
in ways that make things better from a bigger picture perspective
- especially in the face of challenge and change.
In its broadest sense, co-intelligence involves accessing the
wisdom of the
whole on behalf of the whole.
Co-intelligence is emerging through new developments in democracy,
organizational development, collaborative processes, the Internet
and systems sciences like ecology and complexity. Today millions
of people are involved in co-creating co-intelligence. Our diverse
efforts grow more effective as we discover we are part of a
larger evolutionary enterprise, and as we learn together and
from each other.
The Co-Intelligence Institute works to
further the understanding and development of co-intelligence. It
focuses on catalyzing co-intelligence in the realms of politics,
governance, economics and conscious
evolution of ourselves and our social systems. We research,
network, advocate, and help organize leading-edge experiments and
conversations in order to weave what is possible into new, wiser
forms of civilization.
This site includes hundreds of articles and references describing
proven methods, innovative models, practical visions and the theoretical
frameworks that weave them all together. It has rightly been called
a treasure-trove. Welcome to its resources. You can get
a good overview on our FAQ and Topics
Thank you for whatever you may be doing to make groups, organizations,
communities and whole cultures more effective, vibrant, sustainable
and wise. We expect our work to empower yours. We welcome your

Evolution, the most ancient, complex and self-organized of
all change processes, has been going on for 13.7 billion years.
We are now part of that process becoming conscious. Inspired
by the Great Story of evolution and our role in it, and guided
by our increasing understanding of evolutionary dynamics,
we can co-create wiser social systems, cultures, consciousness,
and technologies. Much of the material on this site is part
of this co-creative adventure.
