We design and facilitate public processes using a research-based Community Learning Model (CLM) that focuses on results, includes relevant and diverse stakeholders in thoughtful dialogue, and develops action plans and structures for learning from results—creating the conditions for collaboration to thrive.
The CLM is a proven game-changer for achieving positive change in communities and puts collaboration at the forefront of solving issues that affect the way society functions.
