Trust and Public Participation

Video Recording

Join us for the first in our new webinar series: Bringing New Ideas and Innovation to the Field of EE. Marc Stern, an Associate Professor in the Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation at Virginia Tech, will talk about trust and its importance in environmental education.

Why do you trust? Why do other people trust (or distrust) you? This webinar will explore the multiple dimensions of trust as they relate to public participation and environmental communications. We’ll discuss different sources of trust and how different forms of trust interact to enhance or detract from collaboration, negotiation, education, and persuasive communications.

This webinar is part of NAAEE’s monthly webinar series hosted on eePRO. Click here to learn more about the series and upcoming speakers. We’ll host webinars on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 3 PM EST, with some flexibility.
