About GreenTown:

Healthy people. Healthy communities. GreenTown brings together the public sector and the private sector to connect the dots, to inspire and to work together to remake our communities. Since 2007, mayors and other elected officials, city managers, public works directors, park district directors, planners, developers, builders, architects, landscape architects, engineers, school leaders, teachers, healthcare professionals, environmental advocates – and many others interested in sustainable development – have gathered to hear inspiring speakers, learn from been-there case studies and discuss actionable steps to make communities–and people and planet–healthier. From local food to healthy living, energy to green infrastructure, water to outdoor space, GreenTown will help you make the healthy choice the easy choice.
