Greenprint Summit 2014: Planning for Trees & Public Health
Environment

This year’s 4rd Annual Greenprint Summit will expand on last year’s Summit of the critical need to integrate the urban forest into urban planning, given the impact of the urban forest and built environment on urban health. 200 attendees are expected,  including municipal planners, health professionals, elected officials, urban forest managers, and community activists.

The Tree Foundation’s mission is to build healthy, livable communities in the Sacramento region by growing the best regional urban forest in the nation. Over the last decade there has been an explosion in new research and pilot projects involving the impact of the built environment on public health. The Tree Foundation has collaborated on several such projects and many more are happening around the region and in other parts of the country.

2014 Greenprint Summit presenters will share the results of analyzing the association between tree canopy and public health behaviors and outcomes in the Sacramento Region. The Greenprint Summit is open to the public and will provide opportunity for networking, conversation, and collaboration on designing, building, and maintaining healthy communities in the Sacramento region. CM credit is available for American Institute of Certified Planners. CEU’s are available for ISA Certified Arborist and Certified Tree Workers. 

The 2014 Greenprint Summit takes place: January 30, 2014, 8am - 5pm

Location: Citrus Heights Community Center, Citrus Heights, California
