Effective Community Engagement to Support Energy Projects in NH

On July 16th, 2014, the New Hampshire Local Energy Work Group ( will host a Local Energy Solutions Webinar in support of the energy projects in New Hampshire.

Are you looking for more community interest, understanding or support for your energy projects? Take your passion and expertise about energy issues and share it with your community. This will lead to greater community participation, better understanding, more support and stronger local decision-making. In this webinar, two community engagement experts from UNH Cooperative Extension will share the best practices in community outreach and engagement. You will learn how to reach out and how to engage (they are different!) We will help you identify community stakeholders and share the many ways you can engage with them. We will explain tools of engagement such as forums, charettes, visioning sessions, key informant interviews and focus groups. You will finish the session with a plan for engaging your community in your work.

Presenters from UNH Cooperative Extension:

  • Molly Donovan, Extension Specialist, Community Development
  • Charlie French, Program Team Leader, Community and Economic Development
