On Friday, April 28, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and UCLA Chancellor Gene Block convened the newly formed L.A. Sustainability Leadership Council. This council demonstrates the partnership between the City of Los Angeles and UCLA to advance sustainability goals for the region, as outlined in the Sustainable City pLAn and the UCLA Sustainable LA Grand Challenge Five-Year Work Plan. Members of this new Leadership Council include prominent business, academic, and community leaders working toward the common goal of a sustainable future for Los Angeles in public, private, and academic sectors. According to Mark Gold, associate vice chancellor for environment and sustainability at UCLA and responsible for leading the effort to meet the Sustainable LA Grand Challenge goals, “the creation of a high powered Leadership Council, chaired by Mayor Garcetti and Chancellor Block, will result in a more focused, coordinated effort to make Los Angeles the world’s first sustainable megacity.” UCLA and the City of Los Angeles are excited to partner together in order to move the city and the region forward on sustainability.
