Reinventing L.A.: Nature and Community in the Global City

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.
