Because many environmental issues impact both the natural environmental and the human environment, public involvement strategies are often a key step in conducting a thorough environmental analysis.

These outreach initiatives can range from small community association meetings to large scale meetings involving multiple stakeholders and/or agencies. They can involve a variety of media tools including simple PowerPoint presentations, fact sheets, written surveys, online information exchanges or full scale exhibits utilizing state-of-the-art interactive media systems.

EM&A ensures that the client sets appropriate goals and objectives for its community involvement initiatives, and helps clients determine who needs to be involved in the process, identify appropriate subject matter experts and handle meeting logistics. We also will ensure that your messages are clearly and consistently communicated to the public, and will ensure that there are effective channels for evaluating public feedback.
