Civic Engagement & Facilitation
The Center for Creative Solutions, an arm of Marlboro College’s Managing for Sustainability MBA program, engaged Melaver McIntosh to facilitate numerous workshops for corporate, non-profit, and government clients seeking innovative solutions to complex, often contentious issues in their communities. The objective for these workshops: Develop a systemic set of solutions that are economically feasible, environmentally sustainable, socially responsible, and unique to place.
The primary outcome from these workshops is a vision, a prescriptive set of strategies, and an implementation game-plan – all of which are embraced by the participants.
“We have been in the business of urban revitalization for decades, and so I think it’s safe to say that I know one or two things about public engagement and outreach. But working alongside Melaver McIntosh for the past several years has truly been eye-opening. They have this intuitive, strategic sense of how to bring very diverse groups to the table and then shape a visionary program that the entire community takes ownership of.”
