Linnean Solutions is working with a team of organizations—including One Square World, Oredola Consulting, the Consensus Building Institute, and emersion DESIGN—to help the City of Providence become a national model of equity, sustainability, and resilience. The project’s approach builds on the City of Providence’s initial goal of creating a visionary, measurable, achievable, and community-oriented sustainability plan. In our experience, this is done by designing an inclusive, regenerative, and collaborative process.

The team thus designed a set of activities to support the City and communities in building their own capacity to hold constructive and inclusive conversations and to take collaborative action around equitable and sustainable development. The project aims to reconcile diverse community perspectives around a common goal—to create a balanced and thriving city for the people of Providence today and in the future.
