Introduction to GWIA

What is our mission?

The nonprofit Green Water-Infrastructure Academy (GWIA) was founded to promote green water-infrastructure research and education in pursuit of environmental sustainability in global urban and sub-urban environments. For the GWIA Mission and Goals, visit our website: https://www.gwiacademy.org.  The GWIA LinkedIn page serves as a Think Tank Network for promoting discussion on urban water sustainability issues.
