Our Programs

Since our first Introductory Meeting on Community Engagement in December, 2016, we have engaged the Watertown community in proven, successful models for improving public discussion and debate. We continue these efforts with facilitator training and other programs open to all residents, community and business leaders, and other stakeholders in Watertown.


Watertown Community Conversations is part of a national effort to create inclusive and effective public discussion and decisions. We have put together our own resources as well as resources from other communities in Massachusetts, New England, and nationwide. 

Get Involved

We look to involve all members of the community in this effort:

  • Attend one of our community events

  • Use our resources

  • Share resources and information about what other communities and organizations are doing

  • Sign up to receive our emails or find out more about Watertown Community Conversations.
