Promoting Equitable Development Using Comprehensive Area-Wide Planning Approaches
Free Webinar: "Using Comprehensive Area-Wide Planning Approaches to Promote Equitable Development."
Earlier this year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency launched a training webinar series in its continued effort to build the capacity of environmental justice practitioners working at the state level.
The third webinar "Using Comprehensive Area-Wide Planning Approaches to Promote Equitable Development" is now open for registration.
Several decades of practice in environmental justice and community revitalization has resulted in comprehensive area-wide planning approaches. Webinar presenters will share lessons for achieving community involvement, revitalization and resilience from area-wide planning approaches used to address brownfields or other community challenges and discuss how states can support such comprehensive collaborative approaches. They will apply these lessons to addressing significant current challenges, such as displacement and gentrification.
