Faculty Moira Zellner, Leilah Lyons, and Dean Massey will demonstrate their green infrastructure participatory planning for stormwater management. The technology-enhanced "board game" integrates scientific data and models with citizen, public official, and engineer concerns. Through collaboration, participants will recognize unintended consequences and resolve the inherent tradeoffs of complex environmental problems. The game provides a unique opportunity to enhance public awareness about green infrastructure and balancing community wants and needs.
