3rd Annual Communiplexity Summit

The 3rd Annual Communiplexity Summit will be taking place here in Sarasota on Friday, November  18th from 8:30 - 4:30 in the Community Room at the Herald-Tribune.  SCOPE will be co-hosting the summit with Banyan Sprout, Inc.  "Communiplexity" refers to combined theories of community and complexity which, when explored together, can yield innovative approaches to community change.  This year, the summit will focus on the complexity concept of self-organized criticality as it relates to community.  More specifically:  How can we tell when a coherent sense of community forms among people in a place?  What contributes to the forming of this felt sense of community?  A diversity of perspectives gathered by participants and neighborhood-scale living case examples will be used to explore the topic.  For further details and registration information, contact Allison Pinto, Ph.D. at apinto@scopexcel.org
