S1 | E1: Green Infrastructure (ft. Lancaster City and Provincetown)
Planning for community redevelopment amidst a changing climate and intensifying storm events poses significant challenges.  Many municipalities have turned to green infrastructure as a way to incorporate natural infiltration processes into their plans for development, lessening the impacts of stormwater quantity and quality on their community. Beyond the immediate benefits of improving stormwater management, green infrastructure also provides an array of co-benefits related to public health, recreation, cost-effectiveness, and economic growth. In this episode, we hear from Lancaster City, PA and Provincetown, MA — two municipalities that have employed green infrastructure best management practices (BMPs) into their stormwater management schemes and have seen real returns for the livelihoods of their communities.  To watch the recording of Webinar 1: Incorporating Green Infrastructure for Stormwater and other Co-Benefits from October 7, 2020 (1-2pm EST), please visit http://snepnetwork.org/past-webinars.

S1 | E0: Introduction
Welcome to the The Leadership Exchange Podcast, presented by EPA Region 1's Southeast New England (SNEP) Network! Join us Fall/Winter 2020-21 as we welcome the first community selected to participate in the SNEP Network Climate Leadership Exchange: the Town of Wareham, MA. Through the Exchange, The Network will bring together leaders from around the country to engage with Wareham as the Town plans for future redevelopment in Downtown Wareham Village. Our conversations will incorporate elements of climate resilience, stormwater management, green infrastructure, innovative financing, and smart growth as we discuss Wareham's goals for waterfront redevelopment.  While the Exchange itself will occur over the course of our Fall/Winter webinar series (the first Wednesday of each month from Oct. 2020 to Jan. 2021), each webinar is paired with an accompanying podcast episode where we take a deeper look at the communities joining us for the webinars. The Leadership Exchange Podcast shares some truly compelling stories from communities across the country as we hear from the leaders who have been on-the-ground paving the way for climate leadership.
