We address our mission through five interrelated Program Areas, to ensure host community success in three Process Areas.
Program Areas form a whole-system approach to confronting the local impacts of nuclear power plant closure, by targeting individuals and organizations, from local to national levels, in mutually beneficial ways.
- Education: Raising awareness of key issues for local, professional, and policy-making organizations.
- Research: Rigorous and independent analysis of impacts, policy initiatives, and best practices.
- Networks: Connecting the representatives of host communities with local, regional, and national allies.
- Consulting: Tailoring research and planning work to the needs of individual host communities.
- Public Policy: Developing policy on key issues, and lobbying policy-makers to secure its implementation.
Process Areas describe the arc of successful planning and development initiatives capable of improving outcomes for host communities, from problem identification to strategic implementation.
- Building Knowledge of the regulatory landscape and the socioeconomic impacts of closure, so host communities can make a clear and compelling case for action.
- Building Support for the notion of plant closure as a local socioeconomic concern, so host communities can create public and private buy-in.
- Building Momentum behind initiatives to meet stated goals and objectives, so host communities can secure new partnerships and assistance.
