Community Voices for Sustainability: A Workshop Guide.
Hren, Benedict, J.
This workshop guide is the second in the Conservation Issues Forum Series produced by the Izaak Walton League of America's Sustainability Education Project. The guide, a tool for discussing critical topics with conservationists and community leaders, describes a series of six activities through which community members may work together to develop strategies to address community sustainability issues. Guidelines for organizing and conducting a six-hour workshop for 12-36 people are provided. The guide is divided into four main sections: (1) "Workshop Planning"; (2) "Getting the Workshop Started"; (3) "Workshop Activities"; and (4) "Workshop Follow-Up." The planning section discusses funding, the role of the workshop leader, participants, facilities, a suggested agenda, registration, writing a press release, and checklists for materials and planning. The second and third sections contain participant sign-in forms, activity sheets, descriptions of the activities, and special workshop leader directions. Specific activities include: "The Power of One" (a self-audit activity), "Gauging Engagement Potential,""Community Success Stories Panel," and "Building a Constituency." Contains a glossary, bibliography, and selected World Wide Web sites. (PVD)
