A measure of how "smart" an organization or society is in its ability to allow group wisdom to lead the way in problem solving.

Civic intelligence is similar[1] to John Dewey's "cooperative intelligence" or the "democratic faith" that asserts that "each individual has something to contribute, and the value of each contribution can be assessed only as it entered into the final pooled intelligence constituted by the contributions of all".
