Sustainability

Community Engagement

The Institute engages students from many different disciplines in community activities, outreach, and sustainability-related projects. We develop meaningful relationships with our community to make a difference in our region by partnering with organizations like Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, local government, California ReLeaf, Northridge Vision, Neighborhood Councils, Grid Alternatives, Climate Resolve, Pando Populus and local non-profits to conduct outreach and education, provide valuable learning experiences and engage our students in community sustainability work.


We host regular workshops in the community for residents and engage with businesses on energy and water conservation and efficiency, solar energy, drought-tolerant and native landscaping, and climate adaptation strategies.
