Issues will arise from time to time that extend beyond local or regional communities and are national or international in scope. How can we ready the field to engage local communities in these issues of national scope?

WHAT
  • Build the ISE infrastructure necessary to respond to PES questions as they arise.

WHY
  • To connect practitioners
  • To develop and disseminate best practices
  • Expanding and generalizing current efforts so the field can experience and learn from them

WHO
  • ASTC or other relvant organzations (Each community organized by its practitioners)
    Potentially beyond ISE, not just museums, not just ISE, cutting across formal and informal education, and community, business, government groups

HOW
  • Database of best practices, examples, case studies etc.
  • Connections to existing networks (e.g. NISE Net)
  • Special interest groups (creation of)
