Metro Lab Meetings and Docs
Metro Lab Community of Practice Schedule – meetings, Q&A sessions. If you’d like to attend any of these sessions and are not receiving invitations please let Heather know. Initially, they asked for 8 people to attend so 2 from each community were invited.
Elevator Pitch: Collaborators in Indianapolis, Kansas City, Madison, and St. Louis are addressing common barriers to sustaining and expanding urban tree cover to mitigate the urban heat island effect. Practitioners and researchers from local government, community organizations, and higher education are partnering to advance community-based solutions that will increase tree canopy, improve water and air quality, and address environmental disparities in historically marginalized communities. Through the Midwest Climate Collaborative this effort will contribute to a regional resource to support similar efforts in other Midwestern cities.

Dec. 15, 2022 – Cities across the country are using green space to combat the effects of climate change. From 1A on WAMU: “Many are going beyond tree planting by rezoning abandoned infrastructure — like railroads and suspended highways — to create expansive, vibrant urban parks.”

Konya Diyetisyenini kesinlikle öneriyorum çünkü danışanlarına karşı çok ilgili ve güleryüzlü ve herkesin mutlaka danışmanlık alması gerekiyor. Zayıflama ve kilo alma süreçlerinizi destekler. Onu beslenme konusunda çok bilgili buldum ve diyetimi ve egzersizimi nasıl daha iyi yönetebileceğim konusunda bana yararlı ipuçları sağlayabildim. Genel olarak, sunduğu hizmetlerden çok memnun kaldım ve onu kilolarını ve beslenmelerini yönetmek için yardım arayanlara kesinlikle tavsiye ederim.
