6/13 Green Infrastructure
Today most students were able to sit in on the NOAA Green Infrastructure Training Workshop. Audience members in the workshop included representatives from all levels of government, planning departments, non-profits, development organizations, students, and business owners. What I found fascinating about this workshop was the respect and cohesiveness among peers. Instead of showcasing outside projects for this workshop, NOAA planned the event around existing green infrastructure projects and research in Puerto Rico. When local projects were presented, there was tremendous support, connectivity, and information sharing to further the success of each other. I believe this natural support is because all green infrastructure endeavors presented are linked to a common goal: the natural preservation and promotion of island resources.
