  • Urban Adaptations for Rising Sea Levels

    Sea levels are expected to rise dramatically over the next 50 to 100 years, and coastal cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, London, and Shanghai are especially vulnerable. Leading landscape architects, city planners, engineers, and architects discuss adaptations for flood-proofing in our wetter, warmer future. With UC Berkley Professor of Landscape Architecture Kristina Hill, coastal geomorphologist Jeremy Lowe, and civil engineer Peter Wijsman.

  • Can California’s Water Ever Be Sustainable?

    With a growing population, ongoing drought, and the increasing impact of climate change, California has no choice but to better manage its limited water resources. We’ve seen the consequences of mismanagement through a degrading delta ecosystem, overdraft of groundwater basins statewide, and numerous farms without water allocations. Clearly we cannot continue in this vein. Mark Gold, acting director, UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, moderates a panel with Jeffrey Kightlinger, general manager, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California; Felicia Marcus, chair, State Water Resources Control and Ellen Hanak, senior fellow, Public Policy Institute of California.

A discussion with the filmmakers and Mark Gold, acting director, Institute of the Environment and Sustainability follows the screening. (2013, Dirs. J. Baichwal & E. Burtynsky, 92 min).​​
