CITP Task 4 – Workforce Program
This component of the CITP program found ways in which to engage the coastal workforce of the oil and gas industry, as well as other petroleum-related industries. Three projects were selected for funding:
- Environmentally Friendly Drilling Virtual Rig Website – Developed a virtual site to develop environmental awareness among employees. (www.efdvirtualsite.org)
- Watershed Education Training (WET) Eco-Art Workshop and Adventure – Developed and held team-building outings for promoting a common lexicon of environmental vocabulary and concepts applicable to all watersheds, estuaries and wetland regions.
- Stewardship Training in the Coastal Zone for Petrochemical Industrial Workers – Developed and initiated a program for employees to participate in stewardship-based learning modules designed to promote permanent corporate and personal investments in maintaining a stewardship ethic based on broad understanding of the coastal environment.
