@Risk: Public Panel and Full-day work session

About the event

The @Risk Research Team held its annual workshop in Ottawa. This two-day event was composed of a public panel and a full day working session. The public session, entitled “Managing Risk: Should the Public be Engaged based on Values, not Risks?”, explored opportunities and challenges for improving public engagement in risk management by including public values. During the working session, the Team discussed and advanced case study comparisons, the draft comparative framework, design considerations for the survey component planned for the fall, and outreach and engagement opportunities.
