“Green Infrastructure” incorporates the natural environment and constructed systems that mimic natural processes in an integrated network that benefits nature and people. A green infrastructure approach to community planning helps diverse community members come together to balance environmental and economic goals.
The Green Infrastructure for Resilience Workshop is intended to help participants recognize green infrastructure terms and concepts; understand the ecological, economic, and societal benefits of green infrastructure; understand the wide variety of contexts and scales of approaches referred to as “green infrastructure” today; identify new or existing planning processes suitable for integrating green infrastructure concepts and techniques; and identify local green infrastructure activities and experts with additional information and resources.
