Monster Problems (i.e. BIG impossible-seeming, existential issues) are arising at all levels of society, especially at the national (e.g partisan gridlock) and global levels (e.g. climate crisis).
At the Center for Wise Democracy we offer a BREAKTHROUGH strategy for how "we" (a few of us) can facilitate "all the people" to face these Monsters creatively; reach wise unity through shifts and breakthroughs; and provide responsible leadership to governments, the economy and the culture so action can take place. This amounts to a new System of governance (Wise Democracy) and economics ("ToBe-ism").
Monster Problems are primarily caused by our existing System. So "normal solutions," those our System offers—e.g education, new technologies, legislation— can't solve them. However, we can facilitate our System to transform itself and positively affect all the Monster Problems at once. It's just a matter of adding a collective thinking process that will yield "collective intelligence" instead of "collective stupidity." We call this deeper, holistic approach to solving many Monsters a "Holution," It frees up many "solutions" to become implemented and effective. (See "A Holution to the Human Predicament")

New possibilities for you
Illustration ... for the U.S. (3.5 min video)
Currently in the United States bitter political battling obliterates the possibility of collective intelligence. Most people feel excluded from democratic participation. And elected leaders often represent moneyed interests more than their constituents. How might we (just a few of us) facilitate all the people to come together as a wise and responsible "We the People"? ... where We reach shared conclusions and provide responsible leadership to elected leaders? Below is a short video describing how this might happen within a Reality TV Show. (3.5 min video):
This set of social innovations has been taken up in parts of Central Europe like communities and states in Austria and Germany. Especially the Vorarlberg government uses the Wisdom Council Process, See Seven short videos they sponsored IN ENGLISH. (https://www.buergerrat.net/english-version/) Below is one example, a short video illustrating how the state government of Voralberg in Austria used the Wisdom Council Process to help citizens address and solve a contentious issue: the influx of refugees.
To understand this new-paradigm approach most people find it valuable to experience it by taking a seminar. See the seminars on "Dynamic Facilitation."
Check out "Our Story" of how these social innovations and this whole-system strategy came about.
