Learn about us

PCGN is reimagining how local government can partner with communities to transform policy and services in Boston. We are practicing collaborative governance in a network setting.


what is collaborative governance?

A method of solving complex problems in society. People who are closest to the problems are invited as experts to co-design solutions with those who have resources and influence for those problems.

who is in the network?

We are a community of academics, government officials, community organizations, and Boston residents across multiple neighborhoods. This is a laboratory where we create and explore the tools and practices needed for true collaborative governance.
