Call for Green Development Case Studies

The Land Stewardship Centre of Canada is currently developing a Green Communities Guide to provide community stewards (including elected officials, municipal departments, stewardship groups, watershed planning and advisory councils, developers, and others) with information on practical tools (e.g. design practices and policies) to help make the built environment more ecologically-functional, or "green." Based on this research a publication will be produced later in 2008 and a workshop series will be conducted in late 2008-2009 to share the results with target audiences.
