New EPA Resource Guide Helps Facilitate Improved Cooperation Among
‘Stakeholders’

 Are you a facility manager or worker, government official, or community
activist or
leader faced with an environmental issue that you think may be better
addressed by
cooperating with other interested parties?  If so, a new EPA publication –
the
Constructive Engagement Resource Guide (EPA 745-B-99-008); June 1999 -- can
help you work through this decision-making process and, hopefully, toward a
better
solution for all.

 “Constructive Engagement” is any effort that brings together a diverse
group to
cooperatively discuss a facility’s environmental activities. Such a group
includes
stakeholders— individuals or groups who “have a stake” in the outcome of
these activities.  Through Constructive Engagement, a non-adversarial
partnership is formed in which each stakeholder has the capacity to
participate effectively.

 Through both general guidance and case studies, the guide will help you
decide
whether to get involved in Constructive Engagement and how best to go about
it.  To order up to 5 free copies of the Constructive Engagement Resource
Guide (EPA 745-B-99-008); June 1999 contact:
