July 25, 2024 | Session 2 | Equitable Green Infrastructure in a Changing Climate

Description: This webinar will address the role of Green Infrastructure in the context of climate change. Climate change affects certain groups more than others, particularly vulnerable communities, due to health, social, and economic factors. Building community resilience in an equitable manner can assist communities in preparing for and adapting to the effects of climate change. Green Infrastructure can offer strategies to reduce and better cope with the impacts of climate change.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the effects of climate change in vulnerable communities and urban areas.
  • Recognize the role of climate action plans and their goal to enhance community resilience.
  • Identify methods through which green infrastructure increases resilience and recognize the importance of enhancing resiliency in an equitable manner, with a focus on vulnerable communities.

Guest Speakers: Dany Garcia Moreno, Climate Resilience Planner, Anthropocene Alliance and Carson Risner, Senior Research Analyst, Earth Economics
