Social Planning

Our social planning practice helps make communities more sustainable, welcoming, and equitable for all.  We dive deep on social issues and opportunities with diverse community members, and with the decision-makers serving them.  We are passionate about inclusion because involving more (and more diverse) perspectives always leads to better decisions and outcomes.

The MODUS social planning team works closely with all our service areas, combining deep research, holistic planning, and “strong engagement” to co-create solutions for social impact.  Aspects of this work include:

  • focused research and analysis to genuinely understand the historical and cultural context to explore options and drive real change

  • seeking out diverse perspectives, seldom-heard voices, and people with lived experience to develop local solutions with rather than for communities

  • exploring the impacts and effects of socio-economic and socio-cultural factors to develop more equitable policy, plans, and places.
