Three Megacities: A Comparative Approach

As part of the Hammer’s year-long Future LA: Engineering a Sustainable Supercity series, which explores the technology, infrastructure, and ideas of transforming LA into the first completely sustainable city in the US, the museum is holding a conversation entitled “Three Megacities: A Comparative Approach” on Wednesday, October 3, 2018.

Three Megacities: A Comparative Approach dives into an in-depth comparison between megacities Mexico City, Tokyo, and Shanghai, each with populations over 20 million people. By analyzing these cities’ infrastructures, Matt Petersen, the former chief sustainability officer of Los Angeles, discusses the aspects of these megacities that Los Angeles can adopt on it path towards becoming an entirely sustainable city.

The conversation is the eighth event out of the nine events contained in this informational program co-presented by the UCLA Sustainable LA Grand Challenge. The following conversation will take place next month on November 14 to discuss Los Angeles’ air quality and hot, dry summers during the drought.
