Andy Lipkis is a practical visionary who has dedicated his life to healing the environment while improving the lives of individuals and communities. He founded TreePeople in Los Angeles in 1973 at age 18 and continues to serve as its President. Andy has spearheaded an approach using trees and forest-inspired technologies to make cities sustainable while mitigating floods, drought, pollution, and climate change. Called “Functioning Community Forests,” it is being demonstrated in L.A. as a model for cities everywhere.

Andy has appeared in numerous TV programs, such as the Emmy award- winning series, “How Does Your Garden Grow,” the PBS series "Edens Lost and Found,” as well as films including Leonardo di Caprio’s The 11th Hour, and Dirt! The Movie. In 2008, Andy was named an Ashoka Fellow, as one of the world's most promising "social entrepreneurs."
