In this session, we'll help you gain deeper understanding of the positive role that plants play in urban landscapes. We'll talk about the regulatory and economic drivers of green infrastructure implementation in urban regions across the U.S., and you'll gain insights and understand the role the green industry plays in implementing green infrastructure in managed urban spaces. You’ll leave this session with a view of how green infrastructure and the policy discussions surrounding it will be impacting the green industry, and perhaps your sales, in the future..
