Description

See also: Coastal Training Network, Sustainable Human Systems

The job of discussing potential hazard risks and solutions - and motivating people to take action - is definitely not a "one size fits all" challenge.

 

Course Objectives

  • Respond to difficult questions with more confidence using social science and risk communication principles
  • Develop an effective risk communication strategy that incorporates these principles 
  • Recognize differing values within their audience
  • Identify why people perceive and respond to risk the way they do
  • Practice these new skills

 

This is an exceptional, low cost training offered jointly by the Coastal Training Programs of the Elkhorn Slough and SF Bay National Estuarine Research Reserves, and NOAA's Office of Coastal Management.

Spaces are limited. Limited scholarships are available. Please explain need and email wetlands@sfsu.edu if interested.

 

All registration for this workshop is being done through EventBrite, not the Elkhorn Slough CTP website. To register for this workshop, please visit:
