Nature & Economy- Recognizing and leveraging natural assets for economic vibrancy 

Through case studies and interactive activities, learn about connections between the environment and the economy.  Attendees will sketch out their own community’s natural assets and see how they can be utilized to advance community and economic development goals. All will leave with action ideas and potential next steps - for their communities and/or their organizations.

Attendees will learn:

  • "Natural Capital" is everywhere but not always easy to recognize
  • How communities are taking advantage of  natural capital for economic vibrancy
  • That there are specific ways to leverage natural capital - for tourism, recreation, quality of life, avoided costs of community services
  • The benefits of natural capital should be made available for everyone.

This workshop is for planners, economic development folks, community leaders and thought leaders,       and anyone with an interest in growing their community's vibrancy and delightfulness.

This workshop will be led by Shannon Rogers, Ph.D  Nature Based Economic Development Specialist & Associate Extension Professor, University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension.
