GreenTown: The Future of Community is designed to help create sustainable 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. At GreenTown, people learn, network, and act.
GreenTown is co-produced by a5, a Chicago-based marketing and communications firm, and Seven Generations Ahead, a non-profit organization whose mission is to build healthy, sustainable communities. Over the past five years, we have created experiences across the Midwest in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio.
