THE RELATIONAL APPROACH
Simulating a conversation among peers
Democratizing risk communication: members of the public are not just recipients of knowledge but bearers/ risk communicators themselves.
Narration: technical bulletins/advisories are translated into everyday language that anyone can pass on to others
Teaching to the nth power: people teach others in the community to be risk communicators, as well.
