Event description

Description

The job of discussing potential natural hazard risks and solutions—and motivating people to take action—is definitely not a “one size fits all” challenge.

In this course, participants will learn how to

•Respond to difficult questions with more confidence using social science and risk communication principles;

•Develop an effective risk communication strategy that incorporates these principles;

•Recognize differing values within their audience;

•Identify why people perceive and respond to risk the way they do; and

•Practice these new skills.

This is an exceptional, low cost training offered jointly by the Coastal Training Programs of the Elkhorn Slough and SF Bay National Estuarine Research Reserves, and NOAA’s Office of Coastal Management.

Registration starts at 8:30, training will start at 9:00am.

Spaces are limited. Limited scholarships available, please explain need, email wetlands@sfsu.edu if interested.

We put a lot of time and effort into these trainings and expect those who register to attend. If you are unable to attend for any reason, please let us know immediately so that someone from the waitlist can fill your spot. No shows are highly frowned upon, and will jeopardize participation in future Coastal Training Program workshops.

Instructors:

Stephanie Fauver (stephanie.fauver@noaa.gov), meteorologist and training specialist, NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management.

Gwen Shaughnessy (Gwen.Shaughnessy@noaa.gov) climate adaptation specialist, NOAA Office for Coastal Management.
