Successful meetings, workshops and events don’t happen by chance. They are the result of carefully designed processes led by professional facilitators who work hard to build trust and collaboration among participants. Veda’s team of experienced, certified facilitators work with clients to design and implement processes that foster productive dialogue and culminate in agreement on priority actions that help projects and programs gain traction.

Stakeholder Outreach and Engagement

Natural resource protection and restoration efforts are more likely to succeed if the diverse array of individuals who are interested in and/or impacted by them have had meaningful opportunities to engage.  

Veda staff are passionate about providing stakeholders with this opportunity. Our efforts not only help build broad support for important restoration and protection efforts, but also result in better and more sustainable projects that reflect the important insights and values provided by stakeholders.

Science and Technical Communication

The natural world is complex, and so too are the efforts to understand, protect and restore it. Veda’s team of science communication experts have extensive experience translating science and technical information into compelling language and images that are accessible and comprehensible to broad audiences. Our science backgrounds coupled with decades of science communication practice have resulted in communication products that tell a clear story and have impact.
