Join NatureWORKS for a webinar Wednesday December 2 at 2:00 p.m. EST to hear from leading green infrastructure government officials investing in green infrastructure.
As cities across the nation invest in green infrastructure they support public and private jobs, creating new workforce development and training needs. Jobs for the Future NatureWORKS project is studying occupations affected by this growing trend.
Hear about preliminary results of national research and an in-depth investigation of six cities using green infrastructure for stormwater management, resilience to climate change, and to improve the lives of citizens.
Presenters include Ben Higgins, Watershed Manager, Department of Public Works, City of Lincoln, Nebraska; Michael Bouchard, South Platte River Vision Project Manager, Department of Parks and Recreation, City of Denver, Colorado; Jennifer Lawson, Water Resources Manager, Stormwater Services, City of Ann Arbor, Michigan; and Marc Recktenwald, Water Quality Program Manager, Stormwater Services, City of Charlotte, North Carolina.
The webinar will explore the workforce development challenges and opportunities related to green infrastructure and provide an opportunity to learn about the public and private workers who help design, install, and maintain green infrastructure systems.
