Do you work as an environmental researcher, policy advisor, or in a nature conservation role? Do you engage with members of the public or stakeholders about the environment? Are you keen to reach new audiences or discover new ways to engage with citizens on important and complex environmental issues?
DEFRA has funded an innovative programme of citizen engagement across England to improve understanding of what people value in the environment and their priorities for it.
As part of the Citizen Engagement on the Environment project, they are offering the opportunity to take part in training by public engagement professionals to develop innovative and powerful ways to engage the public in dialogue about the environment.
This training is fully subsidised, although you will have to cover travel.
