"No matter how you pour it – for your coffee in the morning or on your lawn at night – water plays a vital role to our lives in Southern California. But what was once considered plentiful is now in short supply. How we adapt is critical to the region and to our future. Join us for a series of discussions that will focus on the most important water issues we face in the city today. Discover the history of water in Los Angeles. Learn about the people and the struggles. Explore the L.A. River and see what the future holds for the once-neglected waterway. Discuss the possibilities of surviving a hotter Los Angeles and how to create a harmony with our region’s natural resources."

How to survive and thrive in a hotter L.A., and adapt to climate change and increasingly stressed water supplies, all while creating a more livable, vibrant city.
