The Cities Alive panel brings together professionals who incorporate nature, living systems and biophilic design into their work at a range of scales. Exposure to our natural environment has extensive benefits, including reduced stress, improved productivity and the opportunity for social connections. How do we integrate accessibility to nature into our everyday environments and lives? Atlanta professionals in urban forestry, infrastructure, architecture, design and horticulture therapy will use an interactive format to explore how their fields incorporate equal access to natural living systems into their daily work.

This event is sponsored by the Living Building Challenge Collaborative of Atlanta and Trees Atlanta. For more information, please contact Drew Cutright at dcutright@epstengroup.com.
