    Majora Carter presents Water Blues Green Solutions film in Edinburgh

    Water Blues Green Solutions is a 60-minute documentary telling stories about real people solving their water blues with green solutions in four cities across America.

    The film will now be screened in Edinburgh, where it will be presented by Majora Carter, a Peabody Award winning Broadcaster and revitalisation strategy consultant.

    ​About the film

    Produced by Penn State Public Media, Water Blues Green Solutions is part of an initiative designed to promote public education and awareness of green infrastructure and how natural processes can interface with and complement existing grey or manmade infrastructure.

    ​The integrated approach to water and green infrastructure promoted by the film will be of particular interest to landscape architects and to others with a general interest in this subject. Its goal of informing and empowering citizens to participate in the development of place-specific strategies for addressing such issues is inspiring.
