Final Urban Water Series Workshop Will Discuss Creating Local Change and Committing to Next Steps

Urban Water SeriesGreater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF), in partnership with the New Orleans Chamber, the Urban Institute, and over 30 other partners, is preparing to host the final event in The Urban Water Series: Strategies That Work. The event will take place tomorrow, July 10th from 4:30 to 7:00 PM at the New Orleans BioInnovation Center.

The final session will be the culmination, a discussion of how the city can take its place among the, “vanguard of the green infrastructure movement.” The final workshop is on how other U.S. cities are turning their water challenges into water assets

Attendees will hear from experts, including Jeff Eger, Executive Director of the Water Environment Federation and David Waggonner, principal of Waggonner & Ball Architects, in hopes to jumpstart the conversation about water challenges and possible solutions.

“New Orleans has long been defined by its relationship to water,” says GNOF. “But now more than ever, issues of flooding, subsidence, aging infrastructure, and financial sustainability demand fresh perspectives and new approaches.”
