  • 2019 Green-Duwamish Watershed Workshop: “Stewarding Public Lands & Water with Encampments ” - Tukwila

    Date: February 25, 2019
    Time: 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

    Location: Tukwila Community Center, 12424 42nd Ave S, Tukwila, WA 98168, USA
    As our region is growing and changing, so is the nature of those experiencing homelessness and its environmental impacts to our public lands and waters. In this workshop we will gain a deeper understanding on the changing nature of who is living in our green spaces, their needs, and the impact on our lands and waters. We will look at available resources and collaborations to help maintain the health of environmental restoration sites and the health of those encamped on them through new approaches which provide innovative and collaborative solutions.

    The workshop’s goal is not to solve homelessness but to better understand it in order to: mitigate the environmental impacts, promote safety for staff, crews and volunteers, connect individuals to support services, and promote positive behaviors of usage which in turn support the environmental health of these areas.

    Time: All Day

    Infrastructure Week, a non-profit organization, convenes a national week of education and advocacy that brings together American businesses, workers, elected leaders, and everyday citizens around one message in 2019: Americans are waiting. The future won’t. It’s #TimeToBuild. Each year during IWeek, leaders and citizens around America highlight the state of our nation’s infrastructure – roads, bridges, rail, ports, airports, water and sewer systems, the energy grid, telecoms, and more – and the projects, technologies, and policies necessary to make America competitive, prosperous, and safe.

    Utility² will be hosting this year’s event for the Seattle and Puget Sound region with several exciting opportunities to learn more about YOUR public infrastructure and raise awareness of all things which make Modernity seem so simple, yet remain incredibly complex in the background of our society.
