“The misconception which has haunted philosophic literature throughout the centuries is the notion of 'independent existence.' There is no such mode of existence; every entity is to be understood in terms of the way it is interwoven with the rest of the universe.”
~Alfred North Whitehead
The community collaboration group at the Cobb Institute seeks to convene, connect and catalyze initiatives where we have the opportunity to contribute significantly in the Tri-Cities area in ways that advance the cause of ecological civilization. We undertake projects to make long term improvements in the Tri-Cities community's quality of life; increase its resilience to systemic breakdown; and catalyze transformative change for the advancement of ecological civilization.
Our involvements fall into three broad groups in terms of the depth of engagement and scope of our leadership role:
Group 1: Projects we initiate and lead (convene, connect, catalyze).
Group 2: Projects others initiated where we seek to connect and catalyze, such as Pomona Reawakening.
Group 3: Projects where we collaborate to advance mission-aligned causes and build relationships.
