We’ve dedicated space in the InCommons blog to community members in Detroit working collaboratively to reinvigorate their city. It seems those hit hardest by the Great Recession also find the most creative solutions.
Here’s another inspiring initiative from the Motor City I spotted this week in Fast Company, in an article titled “What a Detroit Supper Club Can Teach Us About Co-Creativity”:
The Presencing process is a journey that connects us more deeply both to what wants to emerge in the world and to our emerging, higher self. An international network has been developed to apply the Presencing approach in organizational and social change.
On Monday, Oct. 24, Otto Scharmer (author, Theory U), Peter Senge (director of the Center for Organizational Learning at the MIT Sloan School of Management) and the Presencing Institute are organizing a Presencing Global Forum in Boston. InCommons is proud to support and take part in a parallel conference at Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. We invite you, your colleagues, friends and family to join us registering today at http://presencing.eventbrite.com/.
On Monday (yesterday), we shared a variety of items summarizing the Citizen Solutions. These in-person gatherings InCommons co-hosted late last month throughout Minnesota sought to provide a non-political, open forum for Minnesota residents to offer their opinions and solutions to the seemingly perennial gridlock in state government over the future of our budget.
We’re pleased to let you know Citizen Solutions is now a virtual gathering. We encourage you to take part, offer your own comments, upload or link to any data or research reports, share resources and engage in civil conversations with fellow InCommons members.
The governor and state legislature will begin taking up debate on the 2013 budget bill in less than 17 months. Let’s begin offering them solutions today.
