Minnesota and the Greater MSP Region are already a global center for water system technologies and there are multiple organizations and programs that support the use of green infrastructure in projects of all types and sizes. Grey to Green: Twin Cities is a unique opportunity to cross-pollinate regional work on green infrastructure in Minnesota with the cutting edge work being done in Canada and in other U.S. cities.
Minnesota has a special responsibility and unique opportunity to address issues such as water quality, climate change adaptation, workforce development, and urban resiliency with green infrastructure. The Twin Cities are experiencing some of the greatest impacts of climate change, resulting in more flooding and one of the worst Urban Heat Islands in North America. Minnesotans are making more public and private investments to address impaired waters, conscious of our position at the headwaters of the Mississippi River, as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, and as one of the U.S. states bordering the Great Lakes shared with Canada.

Chesapeake Bay has provided an important focal point for many of the innovative policies and programs that have been implemented to accelerate the adoption of green infrastructure in the D.C.-Baltimore metropolitan region. The Chesapeake Bay Watershed, home to more than 18 million people, is distinctly susceptible to the impacts of climate change—particularly to increasing flooding and more intense rainstorms. Although much as been accomplished, few localities have considered how to site and utilize green infrastructure practices more strategically for stormwater management in a changing climate. Grey to Green: Washington D.C. Conference will shine a spotlight on the best practices in policy, design, financing, research and maintenance from across the region and beyond. By coming together to network and share information, Grey to Green will help stimulate more rapid progress in the utilization of green infrastructure across the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
