Dialogue in nature conservation

Nature conservation, in all its essence, is one of society's most emotional public interests. Conservationists fall on deaf ears with their concerns. At the same time, farmers, hunters or project applicants feel betrayed by nature conservation. The result is a conflict-laden emotionalism between the two fronts that has existed for decades. But the dialogue between the different stakeholders plays a crucial role for a constructive and positive further development of nature conservation work.

 Wolfgang Suske, moderator and communication expert, deals in his book "Dialogue in Nature Conservation" with the prerequisites, framework conditions and the successful implementation of enriching dialogues in nature conservation. Among other things, he provides assistance for resolving a permanent conflict and explains at what point a dialogue is pointless.   

The book was written within the context of the project Dialogue Group Styria.
