Civic Intelligence Research and Action Laboratory - Empowering students to envision and help build a better world. The Civic Intelligence Research Action Laboratory (CIRAL) at Evergreen project integrates theory and practice in an ongoing way. CIRAL is devoted to the theory and practice of civic intelligence. It is the type of real-world lab with student leadership that is often reserved for graduate students. A significant part of the project will be devoted to working with people and organizations in and outside of the region. The program would be offered every quarter for at least two years, but ideally could be counted on to be offered for, say, the next 10 years. Students could elect to take the program multiple times.

Green Hill Academic School Scholarship

Here is the scholarship language used for the scholarship created by the juvenile justice cluster in Spring 2015. 

CIRAL Web Space

The creation of a living body of knowledge that is easily accessible and updateable is an important component of CIRAL.  By creating this space on the Public Sphere Project, the Liberating Voices pattern language can be easily incorporated into the work to facilitate the sense of shared vision CIRAL is striving for.

Project Goals: 
Become a centralized online space for the work of CIRAL
Facilitate project design and coordination
Host action and research results to form a growing body of knowledge
