    • Park[ing] Day LA 2010 Kick-Off Meeting

      Starts: 12:00

      Ends: 13:30 August 12, 2010

      Description: Park[ing] Day LA 2010 is on Friday, September 17. This is the fourth
      year for Park[ing] Day LA - an international, city-wide event
      highlighting the importance of parks and open space in our urban
      neighborhood. By taking over a parking spot, community members build
      small parks-for-a-day with their own vision of the future.

      What if streets were for people? What would our city look like?

      This year, the DLANC Sustainability Committee invites all interested
      persons to a Park[ing] Day LA planning meeting at the railLA
      Exhibition Space (525 S. Flower Street, enter from Figueroa). We will
      be discussing project ideas and resources and continue to build the
      network that supports this effort annually.

      Not just a park[ing] space - a park[ing] LOT!

      This year the DLANC Sustainability Committee would like you and all
      community partners to come and stage a green park[ing] lot - we hope
      to not only fill an entire blank lot with little parks, but we plan to
      introduce our community to a proposed pilot project. We are at the
      very early stages of learning what it will take for the Downtown Los
      Angeles Youth & Cultural Center to build a "green parking lot" which
      will help them generate much-needed revenue for their operations at
      the corner of W. 2nd Street and South Beaudry (see map

    • Moving Beyond Cars: LA's Alternative Transportation Celebration

      Starts: 19:00

      Ends: 23:00 August 18, 2010

      Description: We suspect Los Angeles might have a car-crazed reputation but we also know this city has a vibrant community that likes to take bikes, buses and sidewalks, too. So GOOD is teaming up with railLA, the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, the Coalition for Clean Air, and de LaB for an event that shows how L.A. can move beyond cars. We’re holding it at the exhibition LA Beyond Cars: A Global Perspective on Rail and Space which envisions the future of high speed rail in Los Angeles. And we’re challenging everyone who attends to use alternative transportation. That’s right—our goal is to make this a completely car-free party.

      Board a bus, take the train, ride a bike, map out a walk, jump on your scooter, hire a horse and buggy, break out your hoverboard … just get here in a way that illustrates an L.A. that’s not auto-dependent. Connect with friends and travel together. Document your trip on Twitter, Flickr or Facebook using the tag #LAbeyondcars. When you get to the event, we’ll have an opportunity for everyone to record how they got there, where they came from, and what happened during their journey. James Rojas will be holding his extremely fun interactive city planning workshops focusing on walking and biking. The folks from CicLAvia will be on-hand to talk about how they’re planning a car-free street celebration this fall. Plus: There will be prizes awarded for the people who arrive in the most unique, alternative, or “beyond car” ways. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!

    • Proposition 23: California Threat, National Implications - The Effort to Overturn California’s Climate and Energy Law, AB32 -

      Starts: 12:30

      Ends: 13:30 August 25, 2010

      Description: Clean Economy Network & AIA|LA
      Invite You to Join Us for a Discussion on
      Proposition 23: California Threat, National Implications
      - The Effort to Overturn California’s Climate and Energy Law, AB32 -

      This is a free event. All are welcome with Advance Registration.

      To register, please CLICK HERE.

      California’s Proposition 23 poses a significant risk to the national clean energy economy and to our fundamental business models. Success, even significant momentum, by the opponents of the clean economy will destabilize clean tech markets and make public policy unpredictable.

      If passed, the ballot measure would not only suspend California’s cap and trade program, it would also put at least 72 policies in legal limbo, including the state Renewable Portfolio Standard, Energy Efficiency, Green Building, Vehicle Efficiency and Low Carbon Fuel Standard.

      Our opponents want to stifle innovation and kill competition with this initiative that strikes at the core of our business. We must act now to defend the clean economy.

      Please join us for an in-depth discussion of how California’s Proposition 23 will impact your business and how you can get involved in the campaign to protect your investments. It will identify specific ways that clean economy businesses and investors can support and financially contribute to the effort to defend the clean economy.

      For more information or to RSVP, contact Brandon Keefe at [email protected] .

      This event is presented as a collaborative effort between:

      AIA Los Angeles
      The Clean Economy Network
