Greenbelt Alliance, in partnership with Island Press and the Sierra Club, is excited to host the next Healthy Communities Forum on October 17 at the Roosevelt Community Center in Downtown San Jose!
Sadhu Aufochs Johnston, the Deputy City Manager for the City of Vancouver, Canada and co-author of The Guide to Greening Cities (Island Press), will discuss Vancouver and other cities efforts to change how they build and operate their cities to make them greener and healthier places to live. Since 1990, downtown Vancouver has grown its population by over 75%, yet 25% less cars enter downtown on a daily basis. The City now has the lowest carbon emissions in North America!
