Championing Green City Leadership in Your Community
Climate change is affecting our cities, our communities, and our homes and is changing the way we must design and build our urban landscapes. Each city, town and community must seek solutions and develop initiatives that are specific to their needs – on their streets, in their parks, playgrounds and schools, at all their green spaces, at every opportunity. Join Bill Hardy and the City of Maple Ridge, BC, as they review the new CiB Green Cities grid, and provide practical examples of how your community can strive to become a greener city through the use of nature based solutions/green infrastructure.
