Case study: Orchestrating large-scale stakeholder workshops

Interactive workshops engaging stakeholders require time and effort to plan and implement. This project team at the Hudson River NERR held a day-long workshop to share project results and products with approximately 50 stakeholders including engineers, landscape architects, state permitting officials, and researchers.

Sustainable Shorelines for New York's Hudson River

The team organized participants into groups, consisting of individuals from different disciplines and at least one person who was familiar with the GIS program and the tools developed through the project. The workshop was interactive and engaging and met the team’s goals for successfully sharing the project’s results with stakeholders involved in shoreline management throughout the region. This outcome required several months of intensive workshop design and planning, but it ensured the project met its ultimate goal.
