The need for a renaissance in democratic planning process has never been more urgent. In this hands-on, classroom style session, Concordia LLC will present their engagement methodologies to bridge consensus-building, break the boundaries between the planner and the community member, and make decision-making  accessible. We need to bring all voices to the table, yet the community we live in is a set of overlapping, sometimes conflicting sub-communities and networks. Our community ecosystems are aching for the kind of regeneration that is best achieved through bringing all voices to the table.

Workshop outcomes include: 1. Learn how to engage community members in an iterative design process, 2. Learn new and innovative community outreach methods, 3. Learn what activities worked for generating meaningful discussion and feedback, 4. Learn about tools, costs, challenges, and other tips for engagement.
