Nature & Economy: Recognizing and leveraging natural assets for economic vibrancy
9:00am - 12:00pm
In this introductory level workshop, we will learn strategies communities can use to leverage natural capital to create community and economic vibrancy. Through case studies and interactive activities, you will learn about connections between the environment and the economy and you will have the chance to sketch out your own community’s natural assets and how they can be better utilized to advance community and economic development goals. You will leave with action ideas or potential next steps for your community or organization.
