In the conversations we facilitated found it worthwhile to make the time to step outside the more customary sort of meeting in which there is necessarily a fixed agenda focused on decision making within a particular mandate. In these more typical meetings participants occupy clearly differentiated roles. Our conversations invited people to speak from their common role as local citizens, turn to each other, and together construct an account of what good and inclusive community looks like to them and what they think it will take to conserve what is working and build up what is called for to meet the local challenges of a world at a turning point.
