Roundtable Discussion: Environmental Decision Making
Cloud created by:
29 September 2011
The RTD activity is designed to facilitate understanding about environmental decision making. Students explore a particular issue from multiple perspectives by interacting both online and face-to-face with their peers about a topic in assigned “stakeholder” roles. Students gain an appreciation about the complexity of the issue being examined as they are exposed to different viewpoints about the topic other than their own. The activity has application in any situation involving a group of stakeholders who are meeting to discuss a ‘real life’ issue, with the aim of reaching consensus about the best course of action.
