Submission form for "Call for Collaboration" at the 2018 Annual Meeting
In response to the request for more opportunities to proactively network and build effective partnerships among Coalition members, SUFC established a Pilot Networking Initiative in 2017. During the Annual Meeting held in March 2017, four projects were presented with an open “call for collaboration” among members. Each of these projects related to the theme of “nature’s impact on public health.” (More information on these projects will be highlighted in the forthcoming Member Action Digest.)

Building on last year’s pilot, the Coalition is once again calling for proposals for projects, research ideas, campaigns, or new technologies that relate to the 2018 theme: resilience, defined as using urban forest/green infrastructure management strategies to prepare and plan for, absorb, recover from, and successfully adapt to impacts on people and trees resulting from adverse events. Adverse events include both acute shocks (e.g., natural disasters) and chronic stresses (e.g., climate change effects, such as increasing temperatures and sea level rise).

Those who submit successful proposals will have the opportunity to:

1. Present their project or idea and corresponding Call for Collaboration at the SUFC Annual Meeting on March 7, 2018, in Washington, DC;
2. Receive SUFC endorsement as an existing or emerging innovation in urban forestry; and,
3. Access the diverse members and supporters of the Coalition to form partnerships to assist with their work throughout the year.

Submit a proposal by completing the information below. The deadline for submission is Wednesday, February 7, 2018.
