What do we do?

We tear down barriers

We enable a shared future

We create constructive discussion of complex issues

We find solutions that fall outside the usual expectations

We actively involve everyone we can reach

We find and create action on common ground

We change how people think about each other


We don’t do conventional

Public engagement

Land use planning

Economic development

Because we don’t think the usual ways of doing those do most places much good.


Instead, we allow the people who care about a place — any place, large or small, urban or rural — to understand and choose their best future. Together.


Most importantly, the process results in measurably better solutions:

More innovative

More relevant

More widely owned by the community

More likely to turn into action.
