Midwest communities are increasingly exploring how their existing and growing infrastructure can align with local resiliency and climate action goals. From implementing nature-based climate solutions like Green Infrastructure to regenerative agriculture practices in farming communities, we will explore how initiatives throughout the Great Lakes region are advancing environmental, economic, and climate goals.
Please join us for our next virtual Green Soapbox event focused on the theme of “Regional Infrastructure for Climate & Community Impact,” with local experts participating in a panel. Green Soapbox is an annual event, organized by the Delta Emerging Leaders Associate Board, that explores environmental issues impacting our local community. This year’s Green Soapbox event is generously presented with support from William Blair; click here to learn more about our partnership.
