Outreach and Education

Hands MandalaThe best laid schemes of mice and men do often go awry, and often due to weak communication.

  • What good is a well-conceived business recycling assistance program—with carefully selected targets, great incentives, and sufficient funding—if the field team can't engage the business?
  • How likely is a brilliant policy proposal to gain legislative traction if it can't be explained in clear terms that attract broad stakeholder support?

Speak clearly; listen closely; think hard. Let's work together to get craft, refine and spread your message.
