Hot! Hot! Hot!

  • This is a past program

Hotter, drier summers and winters, which mean longer fire seasons and increasingly poor air quality, are already a stark reality for Angelenos. By 2050, Los Angeles will only become hotter. Researchers at UCLA as well as the city and county of Los Angeles are taking steps toward designing healthier communities by setting ambitious sustainability targets. Panelists include Lauren Faber O’Connor, chief sustainability officer for the city of Los Angeles; Jisung Park, assistant professor of public policy at UCLA; George Ban-Weiss, assistant professor of civil and environmental engineering at USC; and moderator Mark Gold.

All Hammer public programs are free and made possible by a major gift from an anonymous donor.

Generous support is also provided by Susan Bay Nimoy and Leonard Nimoy, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, The Samuel Goldwyn Foundation, an anonymous donor, and all Hammer members.

Public programs advancing social justice are presented by the Ford Foundation.

Digital presentation of Hammer public programs is made possible by the Billy and Audrey L. Wilder Foundation.
