SHORELINE NETWORKING GOES NATIONAL
You are invited to join The Living by Water Project in developing Shorelines
2001 and Shorelines 2002. Shorelines 2001 is a Canada_wide series of community_based
forums where you can gather with other groups to network and explore new and innovative
ideas, such as Conservation Marketing tools and techniques, to help protect Canada's
shorelines. As part of the UN International Year of the Volunteer, The Living by Water
Project will be recognizing the valuable role of the volunteer in caring for Canada's
shorelines and in assisting scientists with inventory and monitoring work. Shorelines 2002
is a national conference that will take place in Vancouver to address selected issues
raised in the regional forums. A Shoreline Festival, to be held in conjunction with the
conference, is also being planned.
FOR SOMETHING NEW _ CHECK OUT CONSERVATION MARKETING
The Living by Water Project is developing a training program in Conservation
Marketing for volunteers and staff of community_based groups and interested agencies.
Conservation Marketing borrows concepts from community_based social marketing, ethical
business marketing, and environmental education techniques. The program features practical
examples and transferable techniques to assist you in matching services and products to
the needs of your audience _ while still delivering your organization's message.
