Environmental Social Science

Science-based knowledge

We use social science techniques (focus group meetings, interviews, workshops, surveys, etc.) to understand the knowledge, attitudes, perceptions, and values of your target audience. We then provide recommendations to help you best engage with these audiences in a way that is centered on trust and equity.

JEDI in Conservation Planning

Conservation Standards 

Lacy Consulting has developed an approach for integrating justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion (JEDI) into conservation planning. We were asked to integrate JEDI into the 5 steps of the globally accepted approach for conservation planning known as the Conservation Standards. We are now transforming conservation planning and practice with conservation groups around the world. Read more here.
