Collaborate

PAJE takes a collaborative approach to consulting — from the local to the global. Our projects move the needle towards a future where both people and our planet are healthy and thriving. We work at the nexus of connected issues including biodiversity, climate, health, equity, and education.

Common attributes of our projects include:

  • Collaborative approach and dynamic engagement
  • Inclusiveness and transparency
  • A strong ethical and philosophical core
  • Commitment to placing the health of ecosystems at the heart of decision making
  • Commitment to equity, justice, health, and wellbeing
  • Focus on systems change

We engage with governments, nonprofits, NGOs and communities at the local to global levels to:

  • Design and implement: Policies, campaigns, strategies, programs, and projects that are innovative, ambitious, timely, and equitable
  • Engage for transitions: Planning and stakeholder mapping, outreach, and inclusion
  • Create lasting connections: Build and guide networks, coalitions, and “super coalitions” using a systems leadership approach
  • Facilitate: Participatory workshops, discussions, evaluation and reflexive processes
  • Empower: Pathways for local leadership and communities to be included and drive big solutions
  • Educate: Develop educational and training programs
  • Connect biodiversity, justice, and climate: Workshop solutions that embody values of social justice while protecting and restoring nature and addressing climate change
  • Evaluate and improve: Programs, approaches, and proposed solutions
