Green City, Clean Waters: What’s the future of Philadelphia’s waterways?
Thursday Mar 21 6:30 PM-8:00 PM
Can we envision the future of urban sustainability by re-examining our urban past? Find out at our March 21 Bicentennial Town Square, a three-part program on urban planning and water management.
- Hear an overview of Philadelphia’s nationally recognized watersheds program, Green City, Clean Waters, which takes a groundbreaking approach to transforming the health of the city’s waterways primarily through land-based strategies.
- View a presentation by the winners of Infill Philadelphia’s Soak It Up competition, which challenged participants to create innovative storm water management solutions for three specific sites in Philadelphia.
- Special guest Eric Sanderson, senior conservation ecologist at the Wildlife Conservation Society, will discuss New York City’s Mannahatta Project, a detailed study that uses Manhattan’s ecological past to envision climate-resistant urban planning for the next 400 years.
This event is free and open to the public.
