There will be a Cross-Sector Partnership Meeting on the conservation of the 422-acre urban forest in Bridgeport and Stratford open to all local organizations, stakeholders, and residents who are interested in being accountable for the protection of this vital natural resource – on April 28th @ 7 p.m. virtually.
A Cross-Sector Partnership is a collaboration between different organizations, stakeholders, and community members who come together to work toward a common goal. In the case of Remington Woods, a 422-acre urban forest in Bridgeport & Stratford, the Cross-Sector Partnership aims to protect this important natural resource from being developed. By working together across different sectors and bringing together a diverse group of people with a range of skills and resources, the partnership can better address the complex issues related to conservation and ensure that everyone’s voices are heard. This collaborative approach allows for a more comprehensive and effective solution to be developed, which benefits the community as a whole. (This approach was recommended by a 2022 report conducted for Groundwork Bridgeport by Yale graduate students: Walker Cammack & Kayley Casenhiser)
During the meeting, we will be discussing the legal breakdown of the EPA consent order, as well as exploring ally ship models that can be used by the Cross-Sector Partnerships to better protect the forest. We will also be exploring potential funding opportunities for acquisition if that is the direction the partnership pursues.
We believe that this meeting will be an important opportunity for us to come together as a community to discuss ways to protect this valuable natural resource for future generations. We hope that you will be able to join us for this important conversation.
The Cross-Sector Partnership Meeting will be held on April 28, 2023, on Zoom. Please RSVP and share with your community.
