Participatory Video is a great way to engage a group or community in the planning and implementation of local schemes, creating a true dialogue. InsightShare offers a face-to-face qualitative consultation process which facilitates communication between stakeholders and decision-makers and between various stakeholder groups. By building understanding between stakeholder groups we hope to build consensus in the community.
