European Integral Political Salon n° 4

Zoom Conference


The European Integral Political Salon (EIPS) is a format for inviting a transnational conversation about new, more holistic ways of doing politics, and for transforming our existing political systems towards a new paradigm/integral operating system.

The Salon is conceived as a joyful, interactive and explorative gathering, with both inspirational input from experts and practitioners in the field, as well as space for dialog, sharing and exchange about the implications of a holistic/integral paradigm in the realm of politics. We hope that it will also facilitate co-creative, emergent processes of tapping into a deeper transnational, transrational collective intelligence and wisdom, in service of the larger common good.

Topic of this salon (June 29, 2023):

As a tribute to recent political developments in Ukraine, we have decided use the next salon to make space for the increasingly urgent question around how an integrally and developmentally informed approach to politics might respond to the increasing tensions in global politics in more adequate ways.

Together with a few invited guests and you, the participants, we would like to engage in an Estuarine mapping session to explore the constraints and possibilities of making small but powerful changes in the ways in which we organize internatonal cooperation in Europe and globally. 

Mini-keynotes by:


Denis Knubel (political scientist, IFIS, Switzerland)
