Our Approach

We believe in ongoing learning through collaboration.

 

This is done through focused support by building partnerships within communities, as well as networks across communities, agencies, and organizations, thus helping them reach organizational goals and strategies. 

 

Facilitation and collaboration are more than organizing and managing meetings. This work plays an essential role in pulling together different groups and stakeholders to have vital conversations and work toward a common goal and strategy. As the impacts of climate change and resource degradation continue to increase, the management of natural resources among different communities will play an increasingly important role. Therefore, collaboration is crucial to address these issues.
