The promotion of green infrastructure as a tool for creating resilient and sustainable communities occurs across all levels of government. In practice, decisions about where green infrastrcture will go are driven by city finances and political or institutional priorities. These priorities can perpetuate social and environmental inequities, creating sustainable communities for some residents, while ignoring the equally meaningful resilience of other communities. This webinar will address the disconnect between planning for ecological challenges versus planning for environmental equity, and how to achieve truly sustainable and resilient cities.
