Sarah has been part of the team that generated this tool to help facilitators and educators create discussion materials for water focused deliberations, and now it is complete and available for download here.
Since November 2015, she has been part of a team from the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education who created the water issues deliberation guide for Colorado with the North American Association for Environmental Education EIF program and the Kettering Foundation's National Issues Forums project.
Deliberate to find common ground for wicked issues including climate change, water availability in Colorado, and energy choices. We can moderate a deliberation for your group of 8-14 adults or students as a method to facilitate learning, improve democratic attitudes, build relationships, and increase civic capacity within any group.
