The topic of this teleconference is:

Forest Land Management Communications

Communication with the public is often seen as a barrier to active forest management. However, with the right messages and a better understanding of our audience, public buy-in on forest decision making is possible. Appropriate communications can payoff from land mangement policy-making to on the ground forest opperations. This teleconference will review the most effect approaches to improve communications and public input in forest policy. Topics include:

  • Where the public and forestry seem to divide: local, national, global.
  • Recent case studies showing positive outcomes on conentious issues.
  • Specific techniques to manage the media coverage of your management activities.
  • Collaborations that brought former adversaries to the same side of the table.
  • Sources for communication training for working professionals.
  • Communicating with youth - the future friends or foes of forestry.
