Exploring the Green Infrastructure Workforce
The Exploring the Green Infrastructure Workforce from Jobs for the Future, a national nonprofit that works to ensure educational and economic opportunity for all, provides a detailed examination of the workforce needed to install, maintain, and inspect green infrastructure systems, including both traditional “nature in the city” and newer, environmentally friendly approaches to stormwater management. The report explores current and emerging educational, occupational, and compensation trends and social justice opportunities nationally. It also profiles six NatureWORKS focal cities—Ann Arbor, Austin, Charlotte, Denver, Lincoln (NE), and Portland (OR)—as well as Detroit that together represent diverse geographies and approaches to green infrastructure.
