Our mission is to improve democratic decision-making

We provide organisations with cutting edge consultancy in designing, implementing and evaluating empowered public participation or deliberative democracy to resolve challenging, complex problems.

We achieve this by combining the skills and talents from our various fields.

  • Innovative practices in public participation strategy, design and delivery by utilising our extensive knowledge and practice of deliberative and participatory methods
  • New thinking – fostered through research, reflexive learning, evaluation and advocacy
  • Technology – maximising the use of smart technologies to elicit public wisdom and collective intelligence
  • Research – decades of time spent on the front lines of resolving contested societal problems, while applying rigorous scientific methods and information

Our goal is to encourage and support decision-makers, citizens, government agencies and other organisations to create ongoing opportunities for everyday people to influence decisions in the common good.
