Life on the Move Lecture Series All plants and animals, including humans, move during their lifetimes, but some take truly harrowing or magnificent journeys to new lands and habitats. This Fall, the La Brea Tar Pits and Museum will join the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability to produce a three-night conversation between the people of...

The plan accommodates the city’s anticipated population increase—1.5 million people by 2050—by densifying less than one percent of its land. Comparing Wilshire Boulevard to major streets in other global metropolises, including Barcelona’s Avenida Diagonal and New York’s Broadway, they model real-world responses to growth and transformation that offer more sustainable strategies for Los Angeles. Moderated...
In Fall 2018, the UCLA IoES Center for Climate Science kicked off a new five-year project aimed at improving the sustainability of water management operations and planning in Los Angeles County. Our researchers will work closely with key water agencies to ensure that water resources managers take cutting-edge climate science into account.
The County of Los Angeles is developing the first county-wide sustainability plan. Working with a UCLA team and the engineering firm, Buro Happold, CCSC is providing science and expertise to the development of the County of Los Angeles Sustainability Plan. Our County Information Sheet Sustainable LA Grand Challenge and UCLA partners to host affiliate event...
At the Center for Climate Science, we believe that all the cutting-edge research in the world can’t help to solve real-world problems if people don’t know about it. That’s why good communication and education are a critical part of our mission. With a generous endowment gift made by Suzanne Weiss Morgen in 2018, we’ve been given the opportunity to launch a new type of climate education event.

As such, it's going to take all of us—native and non-native alike—to dismantle these systems of oppression. However, White allies in particular must be held accountable for their role in the dismantling of white supremacy and extractive economies. We need our allies to join us in pushing back against the narratives of colonization and to incorporate the frameworks of intersectionality, indigenous feminism, and indigenous story-based strategies in their allyship.
Fire. It’s a powerful — but natural — part of nature in California and the western United States. UCLA prof Alex Hall joined PBS SoCal’s David Nazar to talk about how climate change is affecting wildfire… creating a new reality we must adapt to. Sustaining California is a new show that takes a deep look...
