What we are up to

Charting Narragansett Bay’s governance history

Lighthouse Consulting Group is wrapping up a multi-year project  to chart Narragansett Bay’s governance history. This project is being funded by the EPA’s Atlantic Ecology Division and aims to review and identify past government practices and responses to the ecological health of the Narragansett Bay watershed. Ultimately, the EPA will provide the outputs of this project to key governance institutions for their use in informing future policy adjustments to help achieve more cost effective, socially acceptable, and environmentally sound solutions, based on systems management approaches.  The Lighthouse team, which includes experts from the University of Rhode Island and the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, has described and analysed the governance of the Narragansett Bay watershed from 1860 to present day.  The outcomes of this effort will be presented in three parts:  (1) on online public timeline that includes key  chances in the governance of the Bay; (2) an authoritative analysis that considers the many aspects of environmental governance responses to changing environmental conditions in Narragansett Bay and its watershed; and, (3) a lessons learned document that will guide the application of this analysis to other watersheds. For more information about this project or if you have questions, please email Mark Amaral at mamaral@lighthousecg.com

Lighthouse delivers strategic planning event for CTEC

Lighthouse is pleased to be working with the Center for Tropical Ecology and Conservation (CTEC) at Antioch University in Keene, New Hampshire to facilitate a strategic planning event as part of an upcoming workshop aimed at developing their next five year plan.  To make the most and best use of the time and talent available to CTEC at this workshop, we will be using a Speed Storming exercise designed specifically to meet CTEC’s detailed objectives. Speed Storming is a technique that collects information from individuals and groups rapidly and then transforms this information into knowledge through a reporting out process. By the end of the segment, CTEC will have heard from the participants individually as well as getting “best answers” from groups on pre-designed strategic planning questions.
