We believe that people have the power to make great things happen in their neighborhoods, communities and organizations. Our job is to give you the tools and skills to do it.

Community Workshop specializes in bringing creative engagement, placemaking, communications, and strategic planning to towns, cities, and non-profit organizations across North America.  In association with EcoPlan International, we are a team of facilitators, urban designers, land use planners, and economic development experts. 

We are unique in bringing a wide range of tools and offerings to help communities engage residents, consider their options, make smart plans for the future, and spark change. We offer both cutting-edge and time-tested approaches, high-tech tools and low-tech engagement techniques, technical processes and grassroots methods. We aim to help you choose the best techniques and options for you and your audience, and then give you the skills to apply them.
