Project partners Duke Farms, the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and The Nature Conservancy are sponsoring a very special and important workshop, BY INVITATION ONLY.
Nature Based Solutions for Communities: Making it Work
A Workshop to Identify Recommendations for Action
Hear from a few representatives who have managed on-the-ground projects. Some of them succeeded. Some may have failed. Learn from their experiences and listen to them speak to the obstacles they encountered: technical, regulatory, financial, political and even cultural challenges.
Together, as top leaders in sustainability, we will identify a handful of recommendations that will result in expanded nature based solutions for communities in New Jersey.
To prepare for this special, invitation only workshop, please review the following documents prior to our workshop on April 17:
