Geography covered: North America
Our name says it all – we help make the natural and built communities where we live, work, and play better places by tackling some of the thorniest public policy and environmental issues of our day. We pride ourselves in caring about the science, engineering, and technical aspects that underlie many issues, which is a nice way of saying we can be a little nerdy about these things (in a good way, of course).
We are part of the communities where we work, so we understand the political and other nuance that often surrounds a project or policy issue. The work we do in communications, outreach, public involvement, and facilitation bridges the gap between critical projects or decisions, the leaders charged with building or implementing them, and the communities where people live, work, and play.
We offer our clients unrivaled quality, capacity, and talent to develop and execute comprehensive public involvement, strategic communications, and outreach plans and programs. We know how to engage communities, whether they are made up of homeowners, elected leaders, interest groups, or technical experts, in grassroots and high-tech ways, tailored to the unique needs of our clients and their constituents.
Whether we are facilitating a multi-day science advisory board, helping businesses stay open during construction, developing a new website or brand, or gathering input on the future alignment of critical infrastructure, we consistently deliver high quality products and outcomes for our clients (and we usually have fun doing it).
