Launched by ODEP, the ePolicyWorks initative was developed to engage stakeholders, build relationships, and inform the department's policymaking efforts. Brought to you through the use of leading-edge crowdsourcing tools, these online dialogues are interactive platforms of collaboration. They enable ODEP to work with their partners to enlist the public's input on key policy issues. To learn more about past dialogues, visit the ePolicyWorks Online Dialogue Library.
