Smaller legacy cities have fewer resources than their larger or more prosperous counterparts do for mitigating and adapting to the more intense and frequent heat waves and flooding caused by climate change. In addition to broader citywide policies and plans, local officials and nonprofit leaders must forge new partnerships to develop innovative greening programs at the community and neighborhood levels.
Groundwork USA’s Climate Safe Neighborhoods Partnership offers smaller legacy cities an effective model for greening neighborhoods, rendering them more equitable and climate resilient. Join us to hear how Groundwork’s community-driven greening strategies in Elizabeth, New Jersey; Pawtucket, Rhode Island; Cincinnati, Ohio; and 10 other cities helped catalyze systemic change, strengthen civic infrastructure, and advance equitable neighborhood regeneration in these capacity-challenged communities. This webinar is co-sponsored by the Future of Small Cities Institute.
