WEDNESDAY, FEB. 23
International Approaches to Housing Policy: Lesson for California
Housing costs in California continue to soar without sign of abatement, so we turn abroad to look for policy inspiration. This online session led by professor Paavo Monkkonen of the Latin American Cities Initiative at UCLA Luskin will bring the knowledge and experience of high-level officials and policy experts from countries with notable and varied approaches to addressing housing challenges. Examples include representatives from a municipal housing agency or social housing association in Europe (both Helsinki’s and Paris’ are well-known); Singapore’s Housing Development Board, a public provider of homeownership opportunities; Japan’s National Spatial Planning and Regional Policy Bureau, which oversees zoning from a higher level of government than in the United States; and a housing secretary from Latin America (Mexico or Chile).
Cities and Global Climate Justice
Reimagining Gender Equality Through Sport
The Summit will wrap up with a two-session event that will include an in-person opportunity if COVID-19 restrictions have eased by that time. Details about the exact timing and venue will be released at a later date. An on-air personality from ABC7 will serve as the day’s moderator.
Quality of Life Index
Former public official and current UCLA professor Zev Yaroslavsky will unveil the results of his seventh annual poll of Los Angeles County residents on their satisfaction with their lives across nine categories.
The State of California
Prominent public officials will join UCLA Blueprint editor Jim Newton to discuss the importance of governors regarding issues with a statewide focus, including climate change impacts, inequality, homelessness and the state’s political balance.
