Environmental Justice: A Community Perspective
Thursday, May 16, 2013, 4:00 PM-5:30 PM, UCLA IPAM Lecture Hall 1200
Improving communities in large cities is a complex process that often requires expert knowledge. As such, professional groups remain the principal stakeholders and ordinary citizens have little say in matters relating to property, land use and construction of infrastructure systems within their city. Our two speakers will talk about their experience in engaging and benefiting local people in community improvement.
