Cognitive and Perceptual Barriers to Green Infrastructure: Local Decision-Making in Rhode Island

Class ~ Course ~ Demo ~ Lecture ~ Seminars ~ Training ~ Workshop While green infrastructure (GI) has become a relatively common stormwater management alternative to “gray” piped infrastructure, several impediments to GI implementation still exist. Among these impediments are cognitive and perceptual barriers that negatively affect how GI is conceptualized, communicated, and understood. This webinar showcases a master’s thesis research project that explored these cognitive and perceptual barriers that inhibit wider GI implementation at the municipal level in general, as well as in Rhode Island municipalities in particular. Webinar participants will learn about the context of this study, the process of exploring and understanding the cognitive and perceptual barriers at play in Rhode Island, and the study’s recommended best practices for local GI decision-makers. Participants will have the opportunity to directly submit questions to the researcher related to the study’s findings and its larger implications.

VIRTUAL Audubon Mural Walking Tour

Class ~ Course ~ Demo ~ Lecture ~ Seminars ~ Training ~ Workshop The Audubon Bird Mural Project is a collaboration between the National Audubon Society and Avi Gitler, an art dealer and collector. The Project is an impressive effort to create murals of over 300 North American birds. Most of the murals are in the Harlem neighborhoods of Hamilton Heights and Washington Heights, where John James Audubon lived the last ten years of his life. All of the birds painted are threatened by climate change. So, the Project is designed not only to display the birds' beauty, but also to make us aware of the challenges that they face. The artworks range from lovely panels that fill in a former window to spectacular murals covering the entire side of a building. We will see over 40 murals, plus Audubon's grave site, in a 50-minute virtual slide presentation with live commentary. There will be time afterwards for Q&A. Meeting Place: Online.
