The annual UCLA Lake Arrowhead Symposium brings together influential planners, policymakers, academics, and other stakeholders for three days of immersive discussion on the connections between land use, transportation, and the environment. This October’s 27th edition of the gathering tackled the highly relevant topic of “Global Climate Change, Local Growing Pains,” examining how land use policy interacts with and often impedes climate goals.

Sessions covered everything from housing displacement to freight logistics to infrastructure planning for greenhouse gas emissions. Speakers summarized some of the symposium’s key themes and insights in the video below:
