But we're in this unique situation where a lot of climate solutions need space and we just happen to have a ton of it. A quarter of Pittsburgh's land is vacant.

So particularly in our city, stormwater is one of the biggest climate issues that we're going to be facing in addition to heat island effect. So like greening of land is way up there as far as strategies. And we just happen to have this surplus of vacant land, a third of which is owned by the city.

So sustainability and land stewardship and Pittsburgh specific context is so important because we have an opportunity to take one of our biggest issues and solve some of our upcoming bigger problems.

And so if you have all of this space and you can figure out how to best make it work for your community, resiliency is definitely an outcome of that.
