About the Salon
Join Robert Gottlieb (and likely some other folks from the Urban and Environmental Policy Institute) for this Farmlab Public Salon.
Los Angeles -- perceived to be the place without a sense of place -- might seem inhospitable to efforts to connect with nature and community. This Salon -- Reinventing L.A.: Nature and Community in the Global City -- drawing on the recently published book with that same name, will describe how a handful of imaginative and innovative social movements have coalescaed around issues of water, cars and freeways, land use, immigrants, and globalization, to seek to create a more livable and just region.
