Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Public Involvement in EPA Decisions--Online Dialogue
Public Involvement in EPA Decisions
A National Dialogue Via the Internet

Convened by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency

Hosted by Information Renaissance


July 10 - July 20, 2001

You are invited to participate in an online public discussion with 
EPA and panels of experts on improving public involvement in EPA 
decision-making. Please join a broad cross-section of individuals who 
will share their thoughts and ideas on this important topic with each 
other and with the Agency.  

Over the course of 10 days (including a Saturday), the participants 
will discuss specific topics drawn from EPA's newly drafted Public 
Involvement Policy. EPA is now seeking your thoughts and ideas on how 
it should implement this policy. Because this will be a web-based 
discussion, you can select the topics that interest you and 
participate at your convenience

A revolving panel of experts will discuss the main aspects of the 
draft Public Involvement Policy with each other and with 
approximately 500 participants. Among the topics that we will discuss 
are the following:

* Identifying and involving the public, including those hardest to reach;
* Providing information to the public;
* Creating effective public involvement opportunities during 
rulemaking and permitting; and
* Encouraging collaborative processes

The Dialogue is an excellent opportunity for citizens, 
representatives of industry, environmental groups, small businesses, 
states, local governments, tribes, and other groups to learn more 
about the draft Policy and to share their thoughts and concerns with
