GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE WEEK
Welcome to Green Infrastructure Week where we celebrate living green infrastructure such as urban forests, wetlands, meadowlands, green roofs, walls and more. Green Infrastructure gives us so much - cleaner water, flood protection, cleaner air, job opportunities, energy savings, beauty and biodiversity. The presence of green infrastructure in your community even contributes directly to your health and well being.
Despite its many benefits, green infrastructure is underutilized by governments across North America. Help us by saying 'yes' to protecting our green infrastructure assets and investing infrastructure dollars in more green infrastructure in our communities.
Many organizations have come together to bring you a list of fun and informative events taking place May 13 to 19, things that you can do in your home or community to support green infrastructure and online resources that can help you learn more.
We hope you have fun and learn during Green Infrastructure Week.
