ES-5260: Advocacy: Applied Methods

We will tackle theory, practice, and research as a means of understanding effective venues, strategies and tactics for advocacy. We will engage in ‘hands on’ opportunities to build skills, knowledge, experience, and demonstrated ability. We will explore the role of the environmental professional as advocate in the formation and implementation of public policy at a range of scales and domains: international, national, state, and local levels and within private sector organizations and industries. This includes an advanced discussion of the environmental professional as a change agent in social, political, and economic contexts, and the environmental professional’s roles within private and public sectors. Course participants will research an environmental issue, identify a theory of change, and create a roadmap for effective ways to achieve outcomes. Issues include biodiversity conservation, climate change, community resilience, environmental justice, food security, indigenous rights, and sustainable development.
