North Country Listens is a community initiative to develop, promote, and encourage dialogue and community engagement in conversations about community issues that impact the greater Coos County region of New Hampshire and its residents. Through facilitated community conversation people with different views get to share ideas, get informed, and help impact and shape the future of the community.
How it works:
- Bring people together from all walks of life.
- Provide time for in-depth conversations in small groups.
- Respect differences and seek common ground.
- Create conversations among residents that are fair and lead to well-informed community solutions.
North Country Listens will never take a position on a particular issue. We are here to create the process that allows all residents to talk about the issues and share ideas – not to say what needs to happen or how to vote. We want to get people together to talk about what is happening in their community and to strengthen the future of the region together.
