& Climate Resilience
Circular Economy & Climate Change Certificate of Completion Program
November 2023 - May 2024
Adaptation to climate change requires the adoption of resilient, engineered green infrastructure to manage stormwater from a quantitative and qualitative perspective. This is of increasing importance for planners, designers, engineers, landscape architects, and construction professionals to ensure that the infrastructure designed today is adaptive to a changing climate.
This immersive, conference-style Sustainable Infrastructure Program: Low-Impact Development and Climate Resilience, teaches the emerging approaches to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of engineered green infrastructure. In addition, the course focuses on design assessment, lifecycle costing, comparison to traditional stormwater infrastructure, inspection practices, and performance verification.

"As a final year Civil Engineering student who is passionate about water resources management, the Low Impact Development training courses have been incredibly valuable in getting industry-standard exposure to green infrastructure planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance, topics not deeply discussed in my program. My main takeaways include the practical approach taken, where we got ample opportunity to apply concepts learned through exercises; access and practice with various STEP resources, software, and spreadsheets; and a feeling of preparedness to work in the industry when I graduate. I highly recommend this program for new grads or anyone looking to get hands-on exposure to LID."
