Sow the seeds of a wiser, more inclusive and participatory approach to governance.
Use these cards to support your own work as a concerned citizen, public servant, or change agent. We have designed them to enhance the power of collective action and the immense potential for co-creative wisdom among us all.
The pattern cards reflect many years of accumulated experience and reflection aimed at evoking and engaging the wisdom and resourcefulness of the whole, on behalf of the whole. Much of the work we all do depends on conversations – quality interchanges through which we envision, shape and begin to enact the world we desire. These cards can help catalyze and inform these conversations.
