Gaining the Public’s Support with Crowdsourcing


Crowdsourcing is proving to be one of the most cost-effective ways to engage the public on anything from data collection to conveying the importance of protecting our waterways. Government and non-profit organizations alike are increasingly turning to the power of the masses through the amazingly simple use of crowdsourcing techniques.

By implementing crowdsourcing, you can introduce new ideas, spread messages, tap new funding sources, and even find solutions to difficult problems. Correctly applied, crowdsourcing techniques can stretch budgets and leverage the power of the people.

Join Forester University for this educational webinar led by returning speaker Melanie Goetz, and learn how simple data gathering, like CrowdHydrology, can help educate the public with a minimal investment. This course will contain information on the essential elements that help ensure success of any public outreach campaign, detail how easy and inexpensive it is to implement a CrowdHydrology program, and—using field-proven examples—provide attendees with invaluable tools to gain the public’s support.

The difference between your success and failure may well hinge on the surprisingly simple tips offered up in this course about engaging with the public—a “public” that has become more accessible through the use of crowdsourcing. The takeaway: This webinar helps you better understand the concept and how to create a successful public outreach campaign using crowdsourcing.
