How nature-based solutions are key to resilient city infrastructure
Greenbuild 2022: Sustainable Infrastructure Summit (virtual)
Thursday, October 13 at 12:45-1:45 PM ET
As we prepare for climate change, increasing population, and rapid urbanization, there is a potent opportunity to invest differently in city infrastructure. Nature-based solutions and landscape-led interventions create value and address multiple societal needs. Parks, university campuses, streetscapes, plazas, and other open spaces can serve as essential infrastructure for improving health, creating habitat, providing flood control, reducing urban heat island effects, and more.
Presenters will include:
- Danielle Pieranunzi, SITES Director, Green Business Certification Inc.
- Heather Whitlow, Senior Director of Programs & Communications, Landscape Architecture Foundation

SITES Community Call: The Bai'etan Exhibition Center, China's first SITES Platinum project
THIS COMMUNITY CALL HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO CHINA'S COVID-19 SURGE. ALL REGISTRANTS WILL BE INFORMED OF A NEW DATE FOR THIS EXTRAORDINARY PROJECT.
Learn about the first SITES Platinum certified project in China, the Bai'etan Exhibition Center in Guandong. Located within the densely populated Great Bay area, the Bai'etan Exhibition Center was the site of a large-scale warehouse and industrial area built in the 1970s. The Center's redesign integrates environmental regeneration and stewardship strategies along the scenic Pearl River waterfront, setting a benchmark for Guangzhou planning and landscape development. The project team will explain how their use of the SITESv2 rating system led to their success and leadership in restoring a healthy, urban landscape. Read more about the project in their project profile and article.
