Collaboration communication principle in environmental management

(Training module 3, Part 2)

This is the introductory topic to the Training Module 3 on environmental communication and its understanding as the collaboration principle. It serves as an educational material explaining the collaboration communication approach and outlining the scope of environmental communication and collaboration instruments available in municipalities. The material has been elaborated at the Environmental Management Department, University of Latvia, and done by Raimonds Ernšteins and Sintija Kuršinska.

The introductory part gives an insight into the role, objectives and contents of environmental communication and the collaboration communication approach, shortly describing its key principles, the four principal components, communication target groups and the benefits of the collaboration communication principle.

The coming chapters summarize the key environmental communication instruments available in municipalities that are used and can be developed in collaboration among all municipal interest groups, among the governmental, non-governmental and private sectors. Specific examples are given to give an insight into the scope of environmental information, education, participation, proenvironmental behaviour and collaboration instruments.

The concluding part presents the most notable best practice examples of environmental communication in Latvian coastal municipalities, as per each of the above categories of environmental communication instruments. The material covers best practice examples both from the experience of local initiative groups and environmental education enthusiasts as well as from the work of governmental/administrative institutions, reflecting also the best practice concerning successful collaboration of different actors (e.g., between the local administration and NGOs, educational establishments, businesses,media, etc.), through which the role of the collaboration principle in the implementation of effective environmental communication and building environmental awareness can best be seen.
