Presentation Abstract

As part of the regional City Habitats network, Stewardship Partners created the Puget Sound Green Infrastructure Summit in 2016 and has made it into an annual event. The presentation will focus on how this event achieves regional organizing, coordinating and collaboration goals with content selection and collaborative working sessions. The event is organized by a cross-sector host committee and is designed as a Green Infrastructure Thought Leader event. Driven largely by the pressing need to solve the stormwater/ polluted runoff threat to the Salish Sea and the nearly impossibly complex and dispersed nature of that problem, the summit pivots from problem to solutions in creative ways, driving innovation and collaboration and reaching way beyond stormwater in terms of motivations for green infrastructure (co-benefits). Thought leaders from all around the Salish Sea attend this event to co-create the next generation of solutions to broken water systems and to create a healthy region for humans and nature alike. www.12000raingardens.org/summit for more info about the event.
