California’s Enduring Dilemma:
“Building Livable Spaces – Respecting and Protecting the Environment”
Special Guest Speaker - Stephanie Pincetl, PhD
Presentation, Panel Discussion, Q &A
Stephanie Pincetl is a Professor at the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability and Founding Director of the California Center for Sustainable Communities at UCLA.
Stephanie grew up in rural San Diego County and in France. She watched with horror the transformation of the San Diego region’s landscapes into endless suburbs, linked by asphalt pavement and freeways, erasing the ecosystems, topographies, wildlife, and native people’s histories. Her quest is to recapture human scale, respect for nature, and new pathways to ensure equality and dignity for humans in their daily lives. Land use is a key ingredient to living well and to urban equity.
“I am committed to bringing together interdisciplinary teams of researchers across the biophysical and engineering sciences with the social sciences to address problems of complex urban systems and environmental management. Only by this type of integrated, interdisciplinary research can we begin to understand the complexity and multidimensionality of humans and nature today.”
Dr. Pincetl has written extensively about California land use, environmental justice, habitat conservation efforts, urban metabolism water and energy policy. Her book, Transforming California, the Political History of Land Use in the State, is the definitive work on land use politics and policies of California.
