Building up a dialogue between municipality agents and citizens regarding issues, which affect us such as science, technology and the environment, requires new tools. This study puts forward an expository model, which works towards reaching this communication through three target objectives: informing, creating new attitudes and promoting dialogue. The model is shown through an example of a municipality residue plan where the involvement of the community and the exchange of opinions among the participants are pursued. At the same time, the model presents the elaboration and application of an evaluation pattern, specially designed to further analyse its functioning and effectiveness.
