The challenges posed by a hotter Los Angeles are monumental and daunting, and they echo challenges that will be felt by cities around the globe. Globally, about 6 billion people are expected to live in cities by 2050. Questions about how megacities become more sustainable while dealing with climate change and population growth are urgent and important.
On September 12, 2018 in San Francisco, experts in energy, environmental science, law and urban planning will address the challenges of creating sustainable and resilient megacities through innovative science, technology and law and policy solutions, drawing lessons from UCLA’s Sustainable LA Grand Challenge that can be applied around the world, and asking what lessons we can draw from other cities’ experiences.
Event is free and open to the public and will include a reception.
Seating is limited and advance registration is required. Please register by Friday, September 7 at noon PDT.
The Honorable Eric Garcetti, Mayor of Los Angeles (invited), featured remarks.
The event is an official affiliate event for the Global Climate Action Summit, hosted in San Francisco September 12 to 14, bringing together state and local governments, business and citizens from around the world to showcase climate action and new commitments.
