The Co-Intelligence Institute
Current democratic forms do not produce wise decisions. Without more wisdom and collective intelligence in our decision-making, we won't make it through the 21st century. The CII studies all factors affecting the collective wisdom and intelligence of groups, organizations, communities, societies, civilizations. We promote political innovations and ideas that would help every public issue get handled wisely. Currently we are researching citizen deliberative councils (CDCs) whose members reflect the diversity of the population from which they were chosen, and whose process uses their diversity to generate community wisdom. Such CDCs could fit into our political and governance systems in many ways. For our philosophy, see http://www.co-intelligence.org.
