Andy Lipkis – Engaging Nature and Community to Protect and Heal

The Founder of TreePeople (when he was just 17!), Andy Lipkis is one of the nation’s great leaders of community-based urban environmental initiatives. For the past decades, he has led a highly successful and visionary integrated watershed management process in Los Angeles that resulted in the first major urban Department of the Watershed. Andy will share cutting-edge efforts in cities that integrate urban forests and natural ecosystems with wise human engineering to reverse climate damage and make communities stronger, healthier, happier and wealthier.

This speech was given at the 2010 Bioneers National Conference.
