The EWN Podcast Season 5
- Episode 4 Measuring What Matters
This episode features a conversation about how we measure what’s most important to us and how we translate those values into decisions about infrastructure projects so that they can deliver a diverse set of economic, environmental, and social benefits. This episode is hot off the heels of the recent Measuring What Matters Summit held in Washington, DC. The full proceedings of the event are also available in the show notes of this Episode 4.
- Episode 5 Accelerating Nature-Based Solutions through N-EWN Multi-Sector Collaboration
In this episode hosts Sarah Thorne and Todd Bridges visit with a few partners from the Network for Engineering With Nature (N-EWN) including the University of Georgia, Ducks Unlimited, Stantec. Each of the guests represent a distinct sector: government, academia, industry, and not for profit. The podcast guests each expound upon the value of having cross-sector partnerships. As Todd said, “We have to be able to learn faster and compress the time and effort that’s necessary to go from discovering something new, learning a lesson, and then delivering a solution that incorporates that learning. Combining the collective experience of a diverse network of committed organizations is the way we accomplish that acceleration and practice—that’s the value of the N-EWN.” Available 8 Feb at The EWN Podcast.
