The purpose of this National Action Dialogue is to position universities to rapidly respond to community-based programming in the digital networked COVID-19 age by delving in, capturing collective wisdom, inspiring innovative thinking, and focusing on new opportunities, partnerships, solutions, tangible actions and collaborations on issues for farms, families, businesses and communities that will exist long beyond this public health crisis.
In partnership with ECOP, eXtension has been mobilized to support the Cooperative Extension System during this tough time of social distancing. They have started a webinar series to address working virtually and connecting with your audiences through digital technology. More information is available at virtual.extension.org and in the Connect ExtensionGroup “Extension Response & Resources for Extension Professionals Working Online.”
