NH Listens

NH Listens

Solving public problems is a challenging task, since members of the same community sometimes have very different solutions to shared problems. Lack of supportive ways to talk about those challenges can lead to misunderstandings, which in turn may create hostility across competing views. NH Listens works with local and statewide partners to bring people together for productive conversations that augment traditional forms of government, like town meeting or school board meetings. Our vision is to create a network of engaged communities in New Hampshire that can share their experiences and resources for getting “unstuck” and solving public problems.
