Advocacy

As with the early stages of any technology, early adopters spend a lot of time and energy trying to persuade others to adopt as well. For the purposes of this site we are calling that kind of activity, ‘advocacy’; we could have called it evangelisation, activism, lobbying or some other term that suggests enthusiastic support for an idea and some dedication to spreading it.

This part of the site is dedicated to those who would like to learn more about what kind of advocacy is happening in other areas and to help bring together the efforts and strategies, identify the most effective people or strategies to engage when trying to convince others that biochar may be worth investigating in a particular field, practise or organisation.

Please add your experiences in the comment field below and feel free to like to appropriate resources.
