Input to Design of Site Selection Process: E-Dialogues
Two e-Dialogues were convened and led by Dr. Ann Dale, Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Community Development, to solicit input to the design of the process for selecting a site for the long-term management of used nuclear fuel.
The first e-Dialogue was held on December 2, 2008, designed particularly to target young people. This dialogue included 10 experts who had various expertise in community engagement, either as an academic or a practitioner, including two international experts.
The second e-Dialogue was conducted on December 17, 2008, and included three experts - Dr. Nola-Kate Seymoar, President and Chief Executive Officer, International Centre for Sustainable Cities; Dr. William Leiss, Scientist, McLaughlin Center for Population Health Risk Assessment, University of Ottawa, and Dr. Joanne Tippett, Lecturer, Discipline of Planning and Landscape, University of Manchester.
Key observations from these two dialogues are summarized in this brief report. The record of this second e-Dialogue, as well as those from earlier dialogues, can be viewed in its entirety on the Royal Roads University website.
