Center for Wise Democracy
"The Center for Wise Democracy has developed an exciting social invention, a systems approach to solving many of today's most pressing social issues—failing education, loss of community, citizen apathy, diminished economic viability prejudice, terrorism, poverty, exorbitant health care costs, partisanship, breakdown of families, global warming, wars, etc.
It's called the "Wisdom Council process." It is aimed at transforming the public conversation of a large system —a neighborhood, city, county, state, or nation — to create an inclusive voice of "We the People." This strategy promises immense benefits like ... collectively intelligent decisions, bringing people together into a "We," building individual capabilities and empowerment, low cost and low risk, etc."
