Post-Conference Event Title
The Bold Rush – Just Transition Reuse of Former Oil Fields
Thursday, September 28 at 1:30pm / 2-Hour Session
California wants to transition former oil fields into living-wage jobs, open space, commercial, and even housing opportunities. While a few pieces are falling into place, there are huge funding and responsibility uncertainties. Join the discussion to explore the many questions and proposed solutions our community has to offer.
