Societal civic intelligence indicators

From civicintelligence

Here are some possible answers (or are they hypotheses??)...

  • New organizations devoted to civic causes (and new networks, critical mass, etc. that connect them)
  • Qualitative differences in new — and established — organizations
  • Changed "issue environment" (size, constitution and diversity)
  • Increased resource flow to civic intelligence organizations
  • New framing concepts and vocabulary — "human rights", "sustainability"
  • Educational and cultural references (in literature, schools, museums, theater, art, music, etc.)
  • Changing reward structures
  • Active campaigns — e.g. US elections and global anti-war movement
