Back to top

This first webinar in the Sustainable Infrastructure: Putting Principle into Practice series will include an introduction to UNEP’s 10 good practice principles for sustainable infrastructure and interactive discussion of the case study approach that we will be using throughout the webinars.

On the second Wednesday of every month, join us for a 75-minute discussion to:

  • Exchange state-of-the-art knowledge on how to plan and build sustainable infrastructure;
  • Participate in an interactive forum to learn from other practitioners as they present case studies, including best practices and pitfalls; and
  • Connect with a community of individuals and organizations engaged in the sustainable infrastructure sphere.

Technical and case study presentations will focus on one of ten principles from UNEP’s International Good Practice Principles for Sustainable Infrastructure. The presentations and discussions will be interdisciplinary and cross-cutting. We invite experts and practitioners from all geographies and professions (engineering firms, government agencies, financial institutions, civil society organizations, academia) to learn with us and share knowledge and experiences.
