The adoption of green infrastructure practices to manage urban stormwater runoff is a growing trend in communities across the country, but operating and maintaining a network of green infrastructure assets is no easy task; it requires the expertise and labor of a skilled workforce. In this webcast, Sara Lamback with Jobs For the Future and Stacy Passaro with the National Green Infrastructure Certification Program will examine the current state of the green infrastructure workforce, exploring where the jobs are, what compensation they offer, and what level of education they require. In addition, speakers will project the growth of green infrastructure jobs across the water sector and highlight the skills and credentials that will allow workers to capitalize on new green infrastructure job opportunities.
