What is a Lightship?
Lightships are vessels that serve as navigation markers in areas that are too remote or that have impossible terrain. They are impartial, guiding, resilient and soft Infrastructure that becomes part of the landscape.
Lightship Strategies Inc. embodies this concept; we provide insight without imposing the direction. Primarily we serve as an aid to navigation, supporting the development process and working to understand who or what will be impacted by our work. We remain flexible and sensitive in difficult areas or politically charged projects and distill a guiding vision.
