WELCOME TO ECR2012 – REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!
The U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution invites you to the seventh national conference, ECR2012: "Working Across Boundaries," to be held on May 22-24, 2012, at the JW Marriott Starr Pass in Tucson, Arizona. ECR2012 will be a three-day event filled with training workshops, plenary discussions, technology exhibits, panel sessions and presentations across four proposed conference 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
Half-day Training Workshops will be offered on Tuesday, May 22, 2012. Training workshops provide an opportunity for participants to brush up on their skills and learn new techniques and approaches to collaborative problem solving and environmental conflict resolution.
In addition, four cross-cutting, special subject areas will be highlighted as part of the ECR2012 program: Renewable Energy, the Economics of ECR, Environmental Justice, and Innovative Uses of Technology in ECR Processes. The technology emphasis is particularly important and timely, as technology is transforming the way people communicate as well as the way people understand, analyze, and make decisions about environmental stewardship.
