Community Engagement

As StratejiCo., we believe that a large-scaled project can’t be successful if the society which is directly affected is overlooked. Like all other projects, we start with analysis and according to our ‘EVE® engagement’ model and the scale of the project we make extensive research. We work for transforming already existing relations into a trust-based network. For this, we develop relations according to our strategy and roadmap. We make our clients reliable in the eyes of the locals, open a path for participative work, increase the impact and contribution of the project to a maximum level.

What is at stake? 

Environmental and social movements have been increasing in Turkey over the past decade and have had a serious impact on various public projects. Energy and construction projects draw the attention of the public opinion and can lead to locally organized opposition movements. Decision-makers are under pressure to change or suspend the implementation of critical projects due to the concerns about losing popular support. Therefore, engaging social and political audiences is crucial to win public support and mitigate opposition for the projects.
