Overview
As part of Foundation efforts to broaden the base of support for land and water conservation and clean energy initiatives throughout the western United States, Hewlett funded a first-of-its kind bi-partisan public opinion poll in five Rocky Mountain states in 2011. The poll showed that residents shared a range of pro-environmental values across race, political party, geography, and other divisions. Hewlett grantees and other advocacy organizations throughout the West found the 2011 poll results to be very helpful in building support amongst decision-makers for an array of conservation and clean energy policies, and asked that we conduct the poll annually. A project grant to Colorado College will allow the college to host the poll, this time expanded to six western states. Colorado College will work with Western Conservation Foundation and other media and web consultants and NGOs to widely distribute the findings of the poll in each state. The pollsters and other and key spokespeople will conduct briefings for decision-makers. The poll serves as an advocacy tool while at the same time helps establish baselines from which to evaluate the impact of Hewlett grantee's work in the West.
