This advanced course provides participants with applications and techniques for the implementation of green infrastructure (GI) at multiple scales. Building off the GI 101 Course: Strategic Conservation Planning Using a Green Infrastructure Approach, this course explores the next steps for on-the-ground implementation of GI, focusing on how to obtain a maximum return-on-investment from projects that are streamlined and delivered at least cost and that retain the viability of the network.

The four-day course highlights leadership and stakeholder engagement, financing and network management, legal and regulatory issues, and support tools for the optimization of the decision-making process. Expert GI practitioners discuss lessons learned on creating success and overcoming challenges, explore trends in implementation from urban to regional scales, and impart the latest applications of GI related to resiliency, transportation, and ecosystem services.

This course provides a collaborative learning experience on implementation of GI networks. Professionals should be well versed in the concepts and principles of GI; this course is applicable to individuals from a variety of disciplines, sectors, and scales. Completion of TCF's GI 101 Course is recommended as a prerequisite to attend.
