The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has launched a training webinar series to build the capacity of environmental justice practitioners working at the state level. The third webinar “Using Comprehensive Area-Wide Planning Approaches to Promote Equitable Development” is open for registration.
About: Several decades of practice in environmental justice and community revitalization has resulted in comprehensive area-wide planning approaches. Presenters will share lessons for achieving community involvement, revitalization, and resilience from area-wide planning approaches used to address brownfields or other community challenges and discuss how states can support such comprehensive collaborative approaches. They will apply these lessons to addressing significant current challenges, such as displacement and gentrification.
