Sample Agenda

Breaking through Barriers


Environmental and Community Outreach Professionals, Communications or Public Information Officers.


Foreign languages. Cultural differences and isolation. Low education levels. More often than not, you will encounter these barriers when working in the very communities that are most at risk of catastrophic weather and environmental hazards. And you will also encounter these barriers when reaching out to those who catch the fish, cut the trees, dig the mines, drill the wells, and drive the bulldozers. The Breaking Through Barriers series provides big concepts and practical tips to help you reach out to "underserved" audiences from all walks of life.
