Communities


are filled with assets and solutions

We're celebrating ten
 years of working as one
 for the good of all

Over the course of this opening decade, we’ve brought together thousands around the issues that most inspired them to action.

As we gear up for the next ten years and even bigger impact, we’d like to share our journey with you. Join us as we reflect on, rejoice in, and build upon the first ten years of building this vision.

Our Approach

We design and facilitate public processes using a research-based Community Learning Model (CLM) that focuses on results, includes diverse stakeholders in thoughtful dialogue, and develops action plans and structures for learning from results—creating the conditions for collaboration to thrive. The CLM is a proven game-changer for achieving positive change in communities and puts collaboration at the forefront of solving societal issues that just won’t go away.

From beating the odds to changing the game

Communities have been fighting hunger, poverty, and illness for too long. If we really want everyone to be able to thrive, it is time to try something new. The Civic Canopy transforms the we address pivotal issues in our society. The Canopy connects diverse groups of people seeking change in their communities and equip them with the tools to create meaningful and lasting impact.
