Level of Presentation: All: Suitable for a broad audience
The infinite work of improving water quality - haven't I heard this before?
Encouraging stakeholder behavior change to improve nonpoint source pollution requires education, engagement and technology transfer on multiple levels and at multiple times during a project (planning, implementation, and long-term maintenance). The work required to increase stakeholder knowledge and build understanding that leads to adoption of new practices can seem infinite and somewhat overwhelming. This presentation will outline strategies for effective communication and project prioritization. Honesty, humor and hard-headedness are needed to navigate a landscape of comfort, control, and misunderstanding.
