Imagine if our cities were more like forests. Connected by green pathways for safe movement. Cooled with shade and evapotranspiration. Naturally absorptive of rainfall, turning this resource into drinking water and clean rivers. Protected from storms by the bend of trees and the natural sponge effect of marshes.
This opportunity to "connect, cool, absorb and protect" with green infrastructure is being made real by cities all across America and the world at an accelerating rate. And here's how they're doing it.
