GaiaGroup : Gaia Research : Facilitation

  [image] Facilitation

Gaia Research specialises as skilled facilitators at project inception, for brief setting, project development and building design.

The practice uses a wide variety of non adversarial assemblies and participant rule setting techniques to encourage full participation and creative discussion in project development.

Non-traditional and creative methods of information gathering and feedback are used to communicate ideas from all sectors of a consultation process. Often this highlights where beliefs and objectives differ and provides a basis for moving forward jointly in problem resolution.

These can prove beneficial in community consultation as well as working with diverse client groups to set project objectives.

Long experience has enabled Gaia to develop a robust model for use with community clients when addressing Agenda 21 strategies.
