Corporation for Positive Change Reports Success in Longmont, CO

The Corporation for Positive Change (CPC) has just announced its success using Appreciative Inquiry to engage in participatory planning in Longmont, CO. The initial stages of the project included over 80 one-on-one interviews, community conversations, and a one day community summit. These events brought in many residents who had not participated previously in city-sponsored activities. In the next few months, the CPC will begin the third stage of the Longmont project: incorporating the discoveries from the Discovery and Dreaming phases into Designing plans for Longmont’s future. CPC provides consultation and training based on the principles and practices of Appreciative Inquiry. For more information about CPC, or to contact any of their principal consultants, visit their Web site at www.positivechange.org.
