Great Lakes Green Infrastructure Champions Pilot Program

Green Infrastructure Champions Peer-to-Peer Mentoring Network

The Green Infrastructure Champions peer-to-peer mentoring network will connect experienced green infrastructure practitioners with individuals that would like to bring green infrastructure to their communities. The mentoring network will foster the transfer of knowledge from experienced green infrastructure practitioners to a broader network of communities across the binational Great Lakes basin by pairing emerging champions (mentees) with pioneer champions (mentors). Emerging champions are eager to remove barriers and build capacity expanding green infrastructure implementation in their community/sphere of influence. Some emerging champions that received mini-grants for their green infrastructure work are shown on this map. Pioneer champions have successfully implemented green infrastructure in their community and are ready to share their skills and knowledge.
