Many communities struggle with how to prepare for hazards. It can be difficult to talk about our vulnerability to hazards and it can be even more difficult to keep people engaged and motivated to take action to be better prepared. This training provides insights into how and why people respond to risk and will help you develop new skills to better connect with a variety of audiences. Understanding and connecting with an audience’s diverse values and concerns can lead to a higher level of community engagement and can help motivate action to reduce risk.
Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve and the New Jersey Coastal Management Program are partnering with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office for Coastal Management to offer this training June 15, 2017 (9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) at the Jacques Cousteau Coastal Center, 130 Great Bay Blvd., Tuckerton, NJ. 08087.
