The City of Boulder, Colorado, for “Creating a Meaningful and Inclusive P2 Culture”. City council members and staff had long been aware that an engaged public leads to better decision-making, but in 2016, they started to hear from the people of Boulder that it wasn't enough. So the city launched an 18-month consultation process with residents to see where it could be improved.

What the judges said:

  • “Very impressed with what [the city] has done … the commitment to the ‘four pillars’” 
  • “Well on its way to being a good example to other local governments. It has the WOW factor with the potential to impact other local governments.”
