The success of your state consortia (SC) will depend greatly on whom you bring together and what you collectively have the capacity to do. This course was developed to share strategies for not only attracting a diversity of stakeholders to your consortia but also empowering course participants with the tools to orchestrate a diversity of perspectives and capacities and build collective goals around increased environmental literacy and action.
