Workshop Details

CONCUR’s intensive two-day workshop is designed to meet the needs of professionals and graduate students alike who are in a position to advise on or negotiate environmental agreements. In this course, we show you how the process of face-to-face negotiation can augment traditional policy making with creative agreements that are better informed and more stable. During the training, course participants will learn the elements of mutual gains bargaining, apply them in a series of simulated negotiations and reflect on the application of these tools to everyday work situations.
