As the field of green infrastructure expands, a qualified workforce is needed to design, install and maintain green stormwater practices.
Join TFN’s Stormwater Funders’ Group for its quarterly learning webinar, “Workforce and Green Infrastructure,” Tuesday, June 20, at 3 p.m. ET/ noon PT.
Jobs For the Future recently examined the workforce needed to support the demand for green infrastructure systems in its report, Exploring the Green Infrastructure Work Force. During the webinar, report author Sara Lamback will share results from the study, including valuable opportunities for low-income, low-skilled workers to earn competitive wages and roles for funders in building the green infrastructure workforce in their communities. In addition, Claudio Ternieden of the Water Environment Federation will talk about the National Green Infrastructure Certification Program, a national certification of green infrastructure construction, inspection, and maintenance workers, developed by the Water Environment Federation and DC Water.
