31 January – 1 February 2023. The Network for Engineering With Nature (N-EWN) held its first in-person advisory committee meeting hosted by LimnoTech’s Washington, D.C. office. The N-EWN advisory committee consists of two representatives from each partner organization. Part of the work successfully accomplished this week was the adoption of the N-EWN Vision and Mission statement.
After this substantial achievement, the committee spent time determining goals, objectives, and outcomes that will form an action plan to accelerate the implementation of nature-based solutions for the next five years. The tools for progress were sticky notes, markers, timeline posters, and lots of conversation. Learn more at N-EWN.
