We want to invite you to Part 4: Infrastructure, of our Environmental Stewardship mentorship and training program on April 29, 2023 1pm-3pm. You can join us virtually or in person.

Part 1 focused on the big picture, the vision. Part 2 on biodiversity. Part 3 focused on climate. Our guest speaker for Part 4 which focuses on infrastructure is Ethel Rubio. She is a member of the Institute for Sustainable Infrastructure (ISI) and one of the Sustain it or Explain it (SOE) task force members of the ISI.

Infrastructure is key to our quest to transform our world to become smarter and more sustainable. Our fossil fuel civilization has created a crisis that affects all of us. To get us out of this crisis, we will need to redesign our civilization to move away from the fossil fuel civilization and to a greener civilization that use renewable energy supported by sustainable infrastructure.

Join us virtually or in person on April 29 at the Los Angeles Public Library Echo Park Branch to learn more about our Sustainability Program and what you can do to be part of the solution.
