Green Schoolyards for Climate and Community Resilience


Park agencies and school districts are partnering to advance green schoolyards, which offer a plethora of environmental, community, health, and academic benefits. In this peer-to-peer, participants will have an opportunity to strategize with and learn from cross-agency peers about how to advance system-wide, equity-based, and open access green schoolyards in your city. Presenters will discuss supportive policies such as joint-use agreements, building positive cross-agency partnerships, and different financing approaches cities have utilized to implement green stormwater infrastructure in schoolyards
