Sustainability and Real Estate in Los Angeles

Los Angeles is a global leader in both real estate and environmental sustainability with ambitious standards for water, solar, waste, and green buildings. 

Small businesses are forming around this areas and working to push the city toward achieving excellence in every area. 

With the impact of COVID-19 there has been an environmental "reset" and a financial crisis.

 
During this Career Up Now gathering, students, young professionals, and industry leaders will network, learn form each other, engage in meaningful breakout sessions, and discuss the future or Real Estate and Sustainability for the future. 

Jewish wisdom teaches that we each have the responsibility to be Guardians of the Earth. What does this mean in today's times? 

On Thursday night participants including students from UCLA, USC, and CSUN will expand their minds, professional networks, and souls with real estate and sustainability industry leaders and entrepreneurs.
