Strategies for Activating the Research: Brainstorming Creative Mechanisms for Disseminating Research in Ways that Spark Action LIMITED
Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

Evidence-based information is likely critical to your work to enhance the quality and rigor of your practice, advocacy, communications and decision-making about connecting children to nature. Evidence, generated through research and evaluation, is typically disseminated through scientific publications and other mechanisms not easily accessible, or useful, to C&NN’s constituents. In this Action Lab, C&NN’s directors of research and communications will engage you in lively brainstorming to generate ideas for creative and effective ways that C&NN can 1) collect information from you about ongoing needs for evidence-based information, and 2) translate and disseminate research in ways that help you activate that evidence through your work.
