The U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution invites you to the seventh national conference, ECR2012: "Working Across Boundaries," to be held on May 22-24, 2012, at the JW Marriott Starr Pass in Tucson, Arizona. ECR2012 will be a three-day event filled with training workshops, plenary discussions, technology exhibits, panel sessions and presentations across four proposed conference tracks: Track I: Tribal Consultation, Collaboration and ECR Track II: Collaborating at New and Larger Scales Track III: Building Institutional and Practitioner Capacity for ECR & Collaboration Track IV: ECR in Administrative and Litigation Contexts
The conference will also include plenary discussions and a Technology Fair. In addition, four cross-cutting, special subject areas will be highlighted as part of the ECR2012 program: Renewable Energy, the Economics of ECR, Environmental Justice, and Innovative Uses of Technology in ECR Processes. The technology emphasis is particularly important and timely, as technology is transforming the way people communicate as well as the way people understand, analyze, and make decisions about environmental stewardship. Conference panel and roundtable sessions will feature presenters from federal departments and agencies (including the U.S. Departments of Agriculture, Defense, Energy, Justice, Interior, Transportation, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), as well as representatives from tribal, state, and local governments; ECR practitioners; environmental advocates; NGO's; community-based groups; science and technical experts; academics; and others. The overarching goal is to have leading trainers and presenters share their time and expertise to showcase and discuss some of the most noteworthy work being done nationally and internationally to improve the means by which environmental, natural resource, and public lands conflicts and challenges are being addressed.
