Rebuilding Our Economy, Restoring Our Environment

How the Emerging Restoration Economy Offers New and Expanded Opportunities for Gulf Coast Businesses and Communities

As local, state and federal governments plan for protection, restoration and renewal of the Gulf Coast, new opportunities will arise for economic growth. You can take part in this critical moment in Louisiana’s future.

Please join us for a workshop that will convene leaders from industry, government and community organizations in Louisiana for a lively and insightful discussion of the ways that coastal restoration projects can benefit workers, industries and communities. Together, we can create a stronger economy, more jobs and a healthier environment.

Join us for a chance to:

  • Learn about the resources available to help businesses train and develop the workforce necessary for profitable engagement in the restoration economy.
  • Hear about current coastal restoration projects along the Gulf Coast and the economic benefits they bring to everyone.
  • Bring your valuable business perspective on how to promote green infrastructure projects, train workers and create jobs along Louisiana’s coast.
  • Connect with the people who can help you tap into new opportunities: the funds, the training and the workers.

More information, agenda and invitations coming soon.
