Green infrastructure - living and built systems designed to slow down, soak up and filter rainwater where it falls - is growing in popularity in cities around the world. Green infrastructure is seen as a great way to keep waterways clean, fight flooding and adapt to climate impacts while greening our urban environment. Cities are experimenting with green roofs, rain gardens, bioswales and the widespread adoption of tools like rain barrels and permeable pavement.
Ecology Ottawa is hosting a workshop for people to learn more about green infrastructure and about what they can do to green up their communities. We will be releasing the results of a new report on the state of green infrastructure in Ottawa. We will also provide tips for action at the household and neighbourhood level.
