The Institute for Cultural Evolution (“ICE”) is a nonprofit 501c3 think tank based in Boulder, Colorado. Our mission is to foster political evolution in America. Our primary focus is overcoming hyper-partisan polarization. The ICE team consists of “philosophical activists” who are applying groundbreaking insights from Developmental Politics and Integral philosophy to help bring about cultural and political progress.
