Peer Learning Programs

Peer learning, which is practitioners learning and teaching together, is central to the Green Infrastructure Leadership Exchange’s theory of change because of its potential to produce innovations in Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) practice. The Exchange has several peer learning circles that meet monthly or bi-monthly. Circle members often also collaborate on projects that advance GSI practice through the Exchange’s Re-grant Programs. These projects have produced a variety of guides available on our Publications Page.

This year there are nine learning circles with six returning circles (topics below) and three new circles (*topics to be developed throughout the year by learning circle members). Members can view the Community Calendar and access meeting links by logging in under the “For Members” area. Circles are listed in order of week of the month and weekday:
