"CITY OF TREES opened up a discussion about the relationship between urban residents and their parks. Can planting trees improve community engagement and participation in their own neighborhoods? Although our screening was small, it included a number of recent college graduates who are currently exploring ways to get involved in urban environmental issues. I think the film and discussion got them very interested and invested in the link between social justice and environmental sustainability in a way that a lecture or book could not."
