1) Some of the key legislative, media, and other issues facing our communities as we transition to a sustainable society.

2) How citizen lobbyists and community journalists can make a difference in local politics and the State Legislature.

3) How you and your neighborhood or community organizations can cover the legislature and local politics on-line and on radio and television.

The workshop is offered through the Adena Center for Sustainability and Communications. Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion for the course and be eligible for CEU's towards the Certificate in Community Communications.
