April 25-26, 2016. The Symposium is designed to identify specific financing options, opportunities, and resources that can accelerate Chesapeake Bay restoration by creating effective and scalable connections to the private sector and the marketplace. The results of this unique two-day event will be a set of recommendations to the Executive Council that will help guide restoration financing into the future.
On October 27 and 28, 2015, the Environmental Finance Center at the University of Maryland and the Syracuse Environmental Finance Center hosted a first-of-its-kind Green Infrastructure Learning Lab in College Park, MD. This event was designed to build on the Green Infrastructure Summits offered over the past two years which promoted peer-to-peer exchange among communities of all sizes as they grapple with local stormwater management requirements and goals across the country. The Green Infrastructure Learning Lab continued this type of exchange, but then connected communities with the tools, resources, and experiences of the Green Infrastructure Collaborative, a number of nonprofit organizations and associations working on these issues. This event would not have been possible without the generous support of the US EPA and sponsors like the American Society of Landscape Architects, Amigos de los Rios, and the Low Impact Development Center.
