On Wednesday, November 13, join the Do Good Accelerator for this month's Lunch With Leaders featuring The Nature Conservancy.

Join Kahlil Kettering, Urban Conservation Program Director, Washington D.C., of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) for a conversation about stormwater retention, green infrastructure, conservation, and more. The Nature Conservancy is a global environmental nonprofit working to create a world where people and nature can thrive. TNC's mission is to conserve the land and waters on which all life depends. 

Kahlil will lead a conversation about developing new conservation strategies in Washington, D.C., centered on implementing projects that elevate the intersection of protecting nature in urban areas and the benefits nature provides to people in cities. He will discuss his work to build momentum for the first ever stormwater retention credit trading program in D.C. This involves using natural solutions, like rain gardens and bioswales, that absorb stormwater and reduce runoff into the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers.

By sitting down and speaking with leaders from local nonprofits, who are already tackling today's biggest challenges, you can deepen your understanding about social issues, learn about why these issues exist, what current solutions are being implemented, how current gaps can be filled and ask questions that will enable you to think of new and innovative approaches to solve these issues. Lunch will be provided.

Seats are limited, so reserve your spot today!
