Stewardship Partners and the Green Infrastructure Summit Host Committee are inviting abstract submissions through November 21st for the upcoming Puget Sound Green Infrastructure Summit. This time the theme is “Growing Green Infrastructure: Impacts and Intersectionalities When Scaling Up”.

Loosely defined, we are hoping to hear your stories and lessons learned as you grow your efforts in green infrastructure and discover opportunities and challenges related to that growth. As green infrastructure grows, issues like “green gentrification” and displacement, workforce development, equitable access for incentive programs, designing and maintaining for equity across neighborhoods, asset on-boarding for maintenance staffing and budget needs are on all our minds.  In addition, there seem to be more opportunities to collaborate and plan with fields like transportation and affordable housing. Share with us what you are trying, what has worked and what hasn’t.

Please only submit one topic per survey submission. If you would like to submit a second topic, you can revisit the survey and create an additional submission.
