Collaboration: A Guide for Environmental Advocates (UVA, 2001)

The IEN, in partnership with the National Audubon Society and The Wilderness Society, has published a new handbook to assist environmental advocates in determining whether and how to effectively participate in collaborative decision-making. The 80-page guide, Collaboration: A Guide for Environmental Advocates, was written by IEN’s Frank Dukes and Karen Firehock and was funded by a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. The guide was conceived in response to the rapidly expanding use of collaborative processes to address environmental issues as well as to growing concerns expressed by many environmentalists about appropriate uses for collaboration. Development of the guide involved consultation with environmental groups at all levels – national, regional and local While the guide was originally intended for environmental organizations, it is already seen as a useful tool for any organization considering participation in a collaborative decision-making process about environmental issues.
