How do you inquire about, act in and impact the city as self, other and place?

This is a book of: burning questions that deepen your reflective capacity; injunctions that guide your practice as a city AQtivator; and frames for designing impact on, with and as the city.

Learn through a series of methodological cases studies and templates for process designs, based on Integral City work in the last decade. If you want to achieve impact in your work as Integral City Practitioner, Catalyst or Meshworker, these designs generate outcomes in the city, using an integrally framed approach. You can address consciousness and culture as Place Caring (the left had quadrants of the integral model) and actions and systems as Place Making (the right-hand quadrants of the integral model). Organized using the Integral City design cycle the chapters walk you through processes for inviting in the Knowing Field; embracing the Master Code; assessing the 12 Intelligences of the City; discovering and mapping City Values; designing Vital Signs Monitors; engaging the 4 Voices of the City; Prototyping designs for Learning Lhabitats, Pop-ups and Sustainable Community Development; Meshworking Purpose, People, Place and Planet; and Evaluating Outcomes. Using these process designs you may choose a linear or a non-linear path. Whether you focus on separate stages or attempt the whole tour, you will find an inquiry-action-impact system that is replicable, frequently iterative and provides a grand cycle for enacting change at the city scale.
