Webinar: Improving Sustainability in Urban Areas with Green Infrastructure

Future-Proofing Cities Against Extreme Weather with Green Infrastructure and Smart Water Management

We’re in an era where cities are looking to the future and finding new ways to become more sustainable and resilient in the face of climate change. A proactive way for cities to be more sustainable is by implementing green infrastructure.

This is infrastructure that considers the natural environment when planning urban land use and includes green roofs, rain gardens, urban tree canopies, and more. Cities who prioritize green infrastructure over traditional grey infrastructure reap several benefits — and one of the key considerations when planning and designing green infrastructure is the role of water.

This webinar will cover:

  • What green infrastructure is
  • How it helps cities become more sustainable and resilient
  • The important role of water and smart irrigation in maintaining green infrastructure
  • How Baseline’s adaptable smart irrigation systems are being used successfully around the country for various types of green infrastructure
  • An overview of the green infrastructure and the Baseline systems maintaining it at Hudson Yards in New York
This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
