Regional Collaboration

Regional Collaboration

This small, rural region shares visitors, services, incredible natural resources, and a strong sense of community. Businesses, non-profits, and communities work together across town lines to develop efficient and effective solutions to commonly shared challenges. We value broad participation and seek to include all voices.

Building a culture of collaboration and inclusion, creating shared leadership and regional solutions

Our work is guided by these strategic principles:

  • To have impact at an appropriate scale requires collaboration.
  • Shared leadership encourages diverse participation.
  • Cultivating a welcoming and inclusive community is foundational to effective collaboration.

Example Projects:

  • Convening joint meetings of the local selectboards to find collaborative solutions to shared challenges – including broadband infrastructure and waste and resource management.
  • Bringing people together across communities and sectors to implement all aspects of the Sustainable Tourism Plan.
