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
Land use planning
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 widely owned by the community
More likely to turn into action.
