Please plan to join us for this February UNRI Informational Webcast, which will introduce the ‘Red Fields to Green Fields’ Initiative, which is a public/private effort to convert excess, financially distressed commercial real estate into greenspace and urban forest. The research project was initiated by Georgia Tech University, in Atlanta, in July 2009 and has been expanded to 10 additional cities in the US. Scientists, engineers, economists, policy makers, and a broad range of stakeholders are engaged on this national effort to address economic challenges and the potential opportunities. This web session will be of interest to a wide variety of individuals, from a number of different disciplines and perspectives. Please join us for this very new approach to urban forest enhancement in urban areas. The presentation will be delivered by Kevin Caravati, Georgia Tech University.
