Learning Lab/Mobile Workshop – From Eye Sores to Eye Candy: Introduction to Brownfields

Posted on: November 10th, 2015 by Brett Schwartz

This session at NADO’s Annual Training Conference, led by EPA-designated Technical Assistance to Brownfield Communities (TAB) providers, helped attendees identify the causes and effects of brownfields sites and build community capacity to compete for funding, identify possible brownfields opportunities, and develop a vision of what sustainable revitalization can be.  The workshop was  followed by a tour of brownfields sites in New Orleans, including Mercy Hospital and the New Orleans BioInnovation Center.

The workshop was co-hosted with the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Center for Creative Land Recycling, and Kansas State University Technical Assistance to Brownfield Communities (TAB) Programs.
