14. Getting in Step: A Pathway to Effective Education and Outreach and Stakeholder Involvement in your Watershed.
Saturday, 16 November 2002
8:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Room 151 C
Public education and outreach in addressing environmental risk and management issues (e.g. watershed management) have gained momentum in recent years because of the nature of today's environmental and ecological problems. Resource and risk managers face significant challenges in building awareness of potential threats; educating key decision makers-including the public-on stressors, impacts, and the range of management actions available to address identified threats; and motivating people to implement selected management decisions. The key to successful outreach and education programs is targeting your message(s) to specific audiences, linking your activities with audience values, and getting those audiences to respond to your message(s). With budgets shrinking and the pressure on resources growing, education and outreach must be done right the first time.
