The Center for Process Studies (CPS) is a faculty center of Claremont School of Theology in association with Department of Religion at Claremont Graduate University. CPS seeks to promote the common good by means of the relational approach found in process thought. Process thought is based on the work of philosophers Alfred North Whitehead and Charles Hartshorne, two contemporary examples of a longstanding philosophical tradition that emphasizes becoming and change over static being.
The International Process Network (IPN) is a global network for process-relational philosophies. Process-relational philosophies (or “process”), in general, have creativity, organic change over time, interiority and interdependence as fundamental aspects of their understandings. The purpose of IPN is to support, generate, and disseminate an international discourse on the meaning and implications of process thought across academic disciplines and conflicting truth-claims, and in relation to the entire community of life and the cosmos.
Ecological Civilization International works to identify how the major sectors of human social, political, and economic life will need to be organized if humans are to live ecologically and sustainably on this planet for the long-term. Core research into the requirements of ecological civilization gives rise to policy recommendations, advocacy work, and transformative implementations that turn theory into reality. We are committed to bring together both theory and practice, moving beyond narrow disciplinary boundaries in order to secure our future and learn to think and live sustainably on this planet.
Pando Populus is a platform for people who care about big ideas that matter for a thriving biosphere. Their name comes from the largest and oldest organism on the planet — a giant grove of quaking aspen, some 80,000 years old. Above ground, the trees appear as individuals. Underground they are interconnected through a shared and vast root system.
