Description
Infrastructure is the complex, interdependent system that supports our way of life. You can take advantage of a wide range of opportunities to build and re-build a "Green" Infrastructure - if you have the right template. This course is one of an eight course series on Green Infrastructure that provides a template for design and implementation of Green Building concepts applicable to cities and municipalities.

This 2-hour interactive online course gives you the information and action items for assessing sites and identifying opportunities to implement Best Management Practices (BMPs) in “Green” planning, design and construction. Topics covered are:

Working with community groups
Attractive Streetscapes safe for pedestrians and vehicles
Improvements that promote good health in cities
Upgrades that are cost-effective and sustainable
