The American Association for the Advancement of Science’s Center for Scientific Evidence in Public Issues (AAAS EPI Center), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Office of Water (EPA OW), and the White House invite you to join the next webinar in our series that highlights regional examples of green infrastructure and nature-based solutions. In this event, speakers will discuss their work across the Gulf Coast and Southeast to plan and implement unique green infrastructure and nature-based solutions.

Among the featured speakers is Amy Pickle, director of the State Policy Program at Duke University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions.
 
The expert panelists will share their unique, regional experiences planning and implementing green infrastructure and nature-based solutions in the Gulf Coast and Southeast region. Additionally, speakers will share opportunities, challenges, barriers, and lessons learned from the design and planning to implementation to operations and maintenance of green infrastructure and nature-based solutions. This 90-minute event is one in a series of regionally-based webinars, including New England, Mid-Atlantic and the Chesapeake Bay, the Great Lakes, the Southwest, and the Northwest.

This virtual event will be recorded and is open to the public, as well as federal and state employees, municipal and county leadership, local water leaders, municipal and county agencies, local practitioners, academic groups, and community advocacy groups and community members.
