The need to connect to nature is so strong that even our clichés about urban life reflect it: concrete jungle, skyscraper forest. The Portland-Vancouver area has many green spaces for residents to connect with the natural world and thankfully an alliance of conservation groups called the Intertwine to help residents learn about, enjoy, and preserve the natural resources available to them.
When Intertwine decided to host an event, they called on EnviroIssues to help. The summit needed to be designed to energize the area's community of conservation educators, announce the launch of the Intertwine’s new online resources and build relationships with conservation educators in the region. EnviroIssues developed the meeting format and plan which included a World Café session and breakout discussion groups on the issues facing the conservation community.
EnviroIssues also produced all of the materials for the summit. From the invitations to a six-minute video to the final comment cards, we worked closely with Intertwine to ensure that summit materials that both reflected the identity of the Intertwine organization and supported the purpose of the meeting.
Because really? Our lives are intertwined with the beautiful world around us – something always worth celebrating!
