Welcome to A Walk in the Park with Gil

It’s Gil’s bi-weekly WebTalk, in collaboration with 8 80 Cities (founder and chair) and World Urban Parks (former chair, now ambassador). Every other Tuesday fascinating guests present captivating stories of parks, people, and cities. Then Gil & participants have a dialogue with the guests. It’s a way of giving back from having been very fortunate to have worked in over 350 different cities, in all continents.
