The many working as one for the good of all.
WHAT WE DO
The Civic Canopy changes the way we solve pivotal issues in society by connecting diverse groups of people seeking change in communities and equipping them with the tools to create meaningful and lasting impact.
To create a culture of collaboration that drives transformative change.
We design and facilitate public processes using a research-based Community Learning Mode (CLM) that focuses on results, includes relevant and diverse stakeholders in thoughtful dialogue, and develops action plans and structures for learning from results—all within a culture of trust and collaboration.
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.
