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.

Family Planning Using Graphic Facilitation

Have you ever thought about partnering with a graphic facilitator to help with your family planning?  This video clip shows Tim drawing what the Elkano family communicated to each other during their facilitation. By the end of their session, the Elkano family was able to collectively drum up a mission statement for their families. They will have this video as a keepsake to remind them of their session and family mission statement.
