This one-day workshop will equip participants to implement successful green infrastructure (GI) programs and practices in their communities.  Planned sessions include generating buy-in for your GI program, GI and the regulatory framework, technologies that work in New England’s unique context, and financing strategies.

  • Be inspired by and get new ideas from case studies in the region
  • Have opportunities to learn from each other’s experiences

 

Who should attend: Open by invitation only, this event is designed for New England municipalities implementing or considering a green infrastructure program to reach their stormwater management and/or water quality improvement goals. It will also be relevant to regional planning entities and state agencies whose constituent municipalities are considering green infrastructure approaches.
