Join Design Workshop Foundation and Denver-based Green Dot Coalition to learn how to unlock the full potential of green infrastructure through equity-centered project models. Our presenters will speak to the impact of leveraging community partnerships, reducing barriers to implementation, and mitigating green gentrification through innovative collaborations. This session will also introduce strategies and approaches to implementing diversity, equity, and inclusion principles in environmental initiatives and will provide valuable insights into past and future trends in environmental equity.

Learning objectives:
1. Understand how landscape architects can support community-based organizations in initiating, visioning, and moving responsive equity-centered community greening projects forward. 
2. Develop awareness of the importance of trust building in design and planning to advance resiliency solutions. 
3. Identify specific outcomes of capacity building where landscape architects and allied professionals can add value.
4. Describe the relationship between traditional practice and non-traditional practice models, and how leveraging partnerships with community-based organizations can support under-resourced projects.
