To SOLVE society's biggest, most impossible-seeming problems we must all collaborate. Currently our System structures competition instead. There is little opportunity for us to come together as a wise and responsible "We the People."
At the Center for Wise Democracy we offer a set of social innovations by which to facilitate the missing "We the People" conversation into being.
Wouldn't it be great ... ... if we (just a few of us) could spark a new "We the People" conversation into being ... globally, nationally and locally? Where “all” the people come together in a creative conversation to...
The Wisdom Council Process is a social innovation that can be used to achieve this shift. This is laid out in 8-steps as The ToBe Project, which can be used nationally, globally and in your local community.

At the Center for Wise Democracy we offer a set of social innovations including choice-creating, Dynamic Facilitation, the Wisdom Council Process and Society's Breakthrough that open new doors of possibility for collective wisdom to emerge.

Example #1 ... 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 as elected leaders 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 face the Monster issues, reach shared conclusions and provide responsible leadership to elected leaders? Below is a short video describing how this might happen using 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 has incorporated the Wisdom Council Process into their state constitution. 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."
