The goal of the Future of Our Salmon Conferences is to facilitate dialogue between the co-managers of the resource and a broad range of other interested parties in an ongoing quest for a unified vision of salmon restoration in the Columbia River Basin. Each conference approaches this goal with a different theme.
The following video is an example using graphic facilitation in a conference setting which encourages participant dialogue and participation.
Conference context: The 2014 Future of Our Salmon conference focused on restoring fish passage to historical locations throughout the Columbia River Basin for salmon, lamprey, sturgeon, bull trout and other migratory and resident species. Out of this conference, we intend to develop principles, parameters and a process to drive the development of a unified strategy that allows Columbia River Basin fish to return to their entire historical range.
