Neighborhoods in Bloom | Cities for Climate Action and Community Health

December 5, 2023 - 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

The neighborhood where you live can significantly impact your health outcomes and life expectancy. Neighborhoods are also a powerful tool to shape the sustainable behaviors we need to lower cities’ carbon footprint.

What if we could combine these dynamics intentionally so that designing neighborhoods for planetary health also improved the health of the individuals and communities living there?

Join a gathering of political leaders, community makers, climate activists, and urban practitioners to share stories of how neighborhoods are enabling healthy and sustainable ways of living.

Together with Urban Partners.
