The UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability is hosting the “Green Building Symposium on Resiliency: Managing Energy, Water, and Seismic Risk, Implications for Property Owners” on March 111:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. at UCLA Anderson's Korn Convocation Hall in conjunction with L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti’s release of a citywide sustainability plan.

The keynote speaker will be Matt Petersen, L.A.'s chief sustainability officer, who is working to create 20,000 new green jobs and create an increasingly sustainable, liveable city.

The event will also host an array of speakers from multiple city sectors, ranging from the Department of Water and Power to the Department of Energy’s “Better Building’s Challenge,” addressing the city’s goals for a 15 percent energy reduction by 2020, a 20 percent reduction in water use by 2017, and an overall improvement in seismic safety response measures.

Registration, which includes lunch and parking, is $25; $10 UCLA discount. Find more information and register here.
