    Nature Based Solutions: Advanced Sustainability and Designing As Nature Does
    Advanced Sustainability, also known as Nature-Based Solutions, is an emerging area of sustainable design thinking, even though the actual solutions are not new at all. Previously called green infrastructure, regenerative design, or site sustainability, Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) involve learning from nature to solve problems which have previously been solved using strictly hard-edged engineering problems.

    Come hear from a group of experts on Zoom as we discuss the next phase of green buildings which incorporate Nature Based Solutions, review sample case studies and lessons learned, and learn how to incorporate these advanced sustainable requirements in a creative manner.

    You will learn:
    • How Nature-based Solutions are implemented and why it might save long-term maintenance cost.
    • What the plans for our key public open spaces and how adjacent development might benefit.
    • How future regulation might drive development projects with a strong Nature-based component.
    • How Nature-based solutions opens new markets for community projects that promote healthy living.

    Please come join us for a lively discussion and thought-provoking presentations.
