A National Dialogue convened by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
and hosted by Information Renaissance
with additional support from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation

Discussion Agenda

The overall discussion on Public Involvement in EPA Decisions is divided into ten topics, as shown in the table below. Each day's topic is linked to a longer description of the topic, together with several numbered statements on which Dialogue participants are invited to comment. With each of these statements there are one or more suggested "possible threads." You can initiate a new discussion thread by posting a message with a unique title on the "Subject:" line. Other people can follow up on a thread by replying to any message in the thread. We hope that participants will pay careful attention to the thread structure, since this will produce the cleanest record of the ongoing discussion.

In the table below you can click on a date to view the archive of messages on that day's topic. The sand dollar leads you to today's discussion. Information on the topic of the day is available if you click on the topic column. And if you click on the entry for Panelists, you will obtain information on the people who are serving as panelists for the day.
