For over a decade, we have been promoting collaborative governance in Israel, leading public participation processes on a wide range of issues and creating groundbreaking impact on Israeli Sociaty. Along the way, we have acquired expertise, knowledge and practical tools relevant to any decision making process
Since 2008, we have been working to strengthen the relationship between the government and civil society, promoting collaborative governance in Israel in a variety of channels. We have facilitated over 70 public participation processes in government ministries, on a wide range of issues, making groundbreaking impct on Israeli sociaty. Among the issues we have helped to promote: social resilience in emergency, treatment of young people at risk, promotion of health and educational programs, integration of the public voice in state audit processes and more. It is our belief that a dialogue between the government, the business sector and civil society is a crucial factor in the ability to lead to social change. Public participation processes encourage dialogue between different sectors, creating new perspectives and knowledge which are essential to the government's work. Public participation processes have proven effective in influencing government legislation, building innovative models for work, and making better decisions. Over the years, we have had the privilage of working along side many dedicated professionals. Each and every one of them has a stake in the knowledge available here, and for that we are very grateful.
