Greenprint for Systems Change: Trails, Green Infrastructure, and Neighborhood Revitalization in North Memphis

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For North Memphis, the last 40 years have been characterized by disinvestment, loss of industry and jobs, and increases in poverty, vacancy, and blight. Encompassing several distinct neighborhoods with a rich African American history, North Memphis is now leading the way in demonstrating how investments in green infrastructure, trails, placemaking, and capacity-building can lead to systems change. Join community and non-profit leaders and learn about North Memphis’s history, as well as current efforts to enhance neighborhood resilience as related to public health, climate change, and racial equity. Participants will visit sites related to Memphis' National Disaster Resilience Competition award and the Strong, Prosperous, Resilient Communities Challenge.
