To achieve complete sustainability, Los Angeles must contend with serious financial, governance, environmental and water management challenges. On Tuesday, Sept. 18, the Hammer Museum is hosting a panel of experts, moderated by UCLA associate vice chancellor for environment and sustainability Mark Gold, for a discussion on how to tackle these challenges. The experts will discuss the impact of climate change on the city’s water supply and ways to improve long-term conservation and infrastructure, including a move toward local water.

This conversation is a part of “Future L.A.: Engineering a Sustainable Supercity.” This yearlong series explores the technology, infrastructure and ideas that can transform the region and make Los Angeles the first entirely sustainable city in the United States. The series is co-presented by the UCLA Sustainable LA Grand Challenge.

The event will take place on at 7:30 p.m. Free tickets are required and available at the Hammer box office one hour before the program. There is a limit of one ticket per person.
