Need help? Visit Education @USGBC Help
How cities manage the sunlight and rain that falls on them has a huge impact on inhabitants’ health and quality of life. But city leaders and planners generally do not manage or even think about their city’s rain and sun in a systematic way and, as a result, mismanage or undermanage these two great natural gifts. This mismanagement costs cities billions of dollars in unnecessary health, energy, and stormwater related costs, degrades city comfort, livability and resilience, and contributes to climate change
