Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, the Secretaries of Agriculture and Interior, the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, and the Chairman of the White House Council on Environmental Quality have been alternating as hosts for listening sessions on cooperative conversation and environmental partnerships. Planned for a number of locations around the country during August and September, the listening sessions give citizens an opportunity to exchange ideas regarding incentives, partnership programs, and regulations that can improve results and promote cooperative conservation and environmental partnerships.

Discussion topics will include:
How can the federal government enhance wildlife habitat, species protection, and other conservation outcomes through regulatory and voluntary conservation programs?

How can the federal government enhance cooperation among federal agencies and with states, tribes and local communities in the application of environmental protection and conservation laws?

How can the federal government work with states, tribes, and other public- and private-sector partners to improve science used in environmental protection and conservation?

How can the federal government work cooperatively with businesses and landowners to protect the environment and promote conservation?

How can the federal government better respect the interests of people with ownership in land, water, and other natural resources?
