Who We Are

Committed to Creating a Better World

Astig (pronounced ah-STEEG) is the Tagalog (Filipino) word for 'fresh, bold, unique'. We believe that in order to resolve society's tough issues we need fresh, bold, and unique ideas and strategies.

Our planning services are aimed at transforming communities and landscapes through engagement, empowerment, and advocacy.

Astig Planning works toward a world of activated communities, healthy ecosystems, and lasting equity. A world in which those most impacted by today's social problems are at the center of creative, community-based solutions that lead to full and dignified lives.
