‘Governing Green’: A Toolkit for Equitable Green Infrastructure

Discover Governing Green, an experiential toolkit that immerses users in three true-to-life green infrastructure journeys. Led by creator Amanda Phillips de Lucas, PhD, this workshop explores the motivation behind Governing Green and how it can help city agencies, nonprofit institutions, and community advocates achieve more equitable green infrastructure governance.

The immersive toolkit allows users to choose a green infrastructure project, step into the role of a stakeholder, make decisions, and reflect on their decision-making process. Stakeholder groups include city agencies, nonprofits, and community advocates; featured projects look at vacant lot restoration, Complete Streets, and green alleyways. Scenarios in Governing Green were distilled from dozens of interviews with city officials, nonprofit representatives, and community leaders in six US cities.

During the workshop, Phillips de Lucas teaches participants how to use Governing Green, and walks them through its prioritization rubric, a standalone tool that can be applied to other green infrastructure or sustainability projects.

Funding for Governing Green was made possible by a grant from The JPB Foundation.
