Join Gil Penalosa, Board Chair for the World Urban Parks, for an engaging seminar, “The 8 80 City: Creating Vibrant and Healthy Communities,” celebrating the Century of Parks.

Gil advises decision makers and communities on how to create vibrant cities and healthy communities for everyone regardless of age, gender and social, economic, or ethnic background. His focus is on the design and use of parks and streets as great public places, as well as sustainable mobility: walking, riding bicycles, using public transit, and the new use of cars. www.880cities.org
