Economics of Multi-Functional Design

Let’s Focus on the WHY not the WHAT

It’s obvious that green infrastructure offers a multitude of ecological benefits that developments should be taking advantage of. If this is true, then why is it so hard to get developers to use it? The reason is simple; we aren’t speaking their language. This session will dive deep into how to persuade your next developer or municipality to move towards a business model that encompasses green infrastructure by focusing more on why they should utilize it and focusing less on what it is.
