Step 3 Exchange

After listening and informing and creating more understanding among the stakeholders, it is wise to look for the most suitable ways of working together. A good collaboration helps to remove barriers, creates support and gives a common dot on the horizon.

Some example barriers for a good collaboration are:

  • Lack of information (what is climate change?)
  • Lack of financial support (no budget for the (perceived) additional costs)
  • Lack of trust (problems with government in the past)
  • Lack of shared reframing (no perceived benefits)
  • Lack of commitment
