Ecologue/Cambridgeport Project. Final Report.
Herr, Philip B.; And Others
This project was a community environmental education effort undertaken in an urban neighborhood, aimed at enhancing the understanding residents have concerning the social and spatial structure of their neighborhood, and thereby improving their ability to act effectively for environmental change. Nearly 100 residents participated in a four-month program of structured dialogue about the neighborhood utilizing photo-reconnaisance, mapmaking, gaming, and other devices to develop and communicate understandings. The hoped-for diversity of residents was successfully engaged and retained during the project. Included with the description and background of the program, this report describes the methods and procedure used in the three phases of the program, selection, analysis, and community interaction. Results, conclusions and recommendations are reported. (Author/EB)
