Integral Theory Conference

We discuss the limitations of contemporary approaches to climate change adaptation and consider how Integral Theory and the AQAL framework can contribute to a new understanding of adaptation by making room for many disciplines, perspectives, and validity claims. A particular focus will be on how kosmic address gives rise to starkly different interpretations of the problems and responses. We describe what integral adaptation to climate change looks like in practice, with examples from El Salvador. Finally, we conclude that change is not only something humans objectively manage but also something we consciously create.
