A Multi-Agency Approach to Collaboration
This week long course explores the effective practice of "collaborative governance," a process that brings diverse parties together to achieve solutions to public issues that go beyond what any party could achieve on its own.
"Introduction to Collaborative Governance" is specifically designed as an introductory workshop for those working in the environment/natural resource and public sectors to learn the fundamental principles of collaborative governance, and to develop the concrete skills needed to initiate and participate in collaborative approaches for public issues. The course is designed to assist participants in applying course concepts to real life situations.
This course is appropriate for individuals at all levels of natural resource organizations and agencies who are interested in building their problem-solving skills and collaborative capacity, and who are faced with complex and potentially controversial issues involving multiple stakeholders.
