About the Show

When he was only 15, Andy Lipkis organized his first tree planting while attending Jewish Summer Camp. As an adult, Andy Lipkis is still planting as head of TreePeople, a Los Angeles effort to protect the urban forest and restore watersheds and fragile habitats. We'll find out about the organization's latest efforts to turn the city into a sustainable ecosystem and what other cities can learn from Andy's efforts.

Also with us is Mike Caslin who is on a mission to turn students across America into entrepreneurs in his work with the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship.

We'll talk with TreePeople founder Andy Lipkis and Mike Caslin with NFTE on the next Smart City.
