As the United States continues to diversify, it is evermore important for us to learn and useeffective strategies to engage diverse audiences. In this issue, we give you an overview of the facts, strategies, and resources you need to do so.
The course goal is to help participants learn to communicate more effectively about science with people outside their field, including the general public, policy makers, the media, or funders and prospective collaborators in other disciplines.
This broadcast will focus on "place-based" urban conservation connections: who are some target audiences, why the environment matters to them and how we can become more involved with urban communities.
An effective conservation strategy includes engagement of people within diverse populations. To be relevant, we need to be innovative, resourceful and also respectful of what’s important to the people we are attempting to reach.
