Tuesday, May 22, 2012 - 8:00am - Friday, May 25, 2012 - 5:00pm
J.W. Marriott Starr Pass
Share Your Experience and Knowledge
The U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution invites you to submit a session proposal for the Seventh National Conference on Environmental Conflict Resolution (ECR). Proposals are now being accepted for pre-conference training workshops and for conference panel sessions and roundtable discussions in the following four tracks:
* Track I: Tribal Consultation, Collaboration and ECR
* Track II: Collaborating at New and Larger Scales
* Track III: Building Institutional and Practitioner Capacity for ECR and Collaboration
* Track IV: ECR in Administrative and Litigation Contexts
In addition to the conference tracks outlined above, the Conference Steering Committee has identified four cross-cutting special subject areas to be highlighted as part of the ECR2012 program. The special subject areas are: Environmental Justice, Innovative Uses of Technology in ECR Processes, Renewable Energy, and the Economics of ECR. Priority will be given to proposals that fit within one of the four conference tracks and focus on one of these special subject areas.
Conference organizers are interested in dynamic, interactive sessions and creative formats designed to facilitate active exchange among presenters and participants. Proposals are strongly encouraged from teams of presenters and panelists representing a diversity of affiliations (e.g., members of federal, tribal, state and local governments, and nongovernmental organizations, as well as private citizens and other parties directly involved in environmental collaboration and conflict resolution).
Network with ECR Colleagues and Leaders
The ECR2012 conference provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and mutual learning about the field of environmental conflict resolution and collaboration among government representatives; nongovernmental organizations; tribal nations and members; community based groups; environmental advocates; corporate entities; resource managers and users; private individuals; and professionals in the conflict resolution, mediation, and consensus building fields.
