EPA attempts to expand public involvement in environmental protection

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is conducting a 12 day internet discussion aimed at discovering ways of expanding public participation in environmental decision making and protection.

Working in collaboration with the Environmental Law Institute and Information Renaissance, the EPA’s Libraries as a Community Resource for Environmental Information is running from 18 to 29 September. The online national dialogue will explore the opportunities for libraries to serve as a key source of environmental information, and will address issues such as public accessibility, and how libraries and the internet can be used to expand public access to local, state and national environmental resources.

According to the EPA, nearly 400 participants had already registered four days prior to the beginning of the discussion.
