The Wisdom Council logo Copyrighted  image Icon Copyright: The Wisdom Council The Wisdom Council describes itself as "a way the people of a very large system—e.g. citizens of a community, members of an organization, citizens of a nation—can address and solve difficult issues together — achieving thoughtful, near-unanimous results.

The process builds the spirit of community, solves difficult problems, and builds the capacity for collective wisdom".

It was initiated by a non-governmental organisation/charity and encourages people to participate through public assembly. The Wisdom Council is local, regional and national in orientation and concerned with democracy, politics & representation and participation.

It was launched in 2002 and is ongoing.
