Connecting long term thinking with short term action
There is a tactical gap between bigger visions and deeper explorations, and what it takes to make these changes a reality. Sometimes there are too many unknowns to make it a project but action is still needed. Based on a transition management approach we help turn initial explorations into concrete action plans.
Involving citizens and other actors
During the transition process we setup labs, organise workshops and co-create experiments with the community frontrunners and other actors that might be relevant to the project. This way, we can better understand the community’s needs, aspirations and ideas for the space.
Creating a shared language and alignment
By bringing storytelling to the beginning of the process and not as an afterthought, we can help you build the capacity and alignment on a shared vision. With a clear vision, the strategic plan and moves that we’ll need to get there become clearer.
