Promoting civic leadership
for a better Los Angeles.


A new Los Angeles

Los Angeles has the potential to lead the world in innovation. Future of Cities conference is designed to create a conversation about how to empower those who will make it happen, and put Los Angeles on the world stage when it comes to thinking forward.

Los Angeles is just a more open place. The way L.A. functions is that people give you a forum. They say, Show us what you can do.
- Esa-Pekka Salonen
People cut themselves off from their ties of the old life when they come to Los Angeles.  They are looking for a place where they can be free, where they can do things they couldn't do anywhere else.
- Tom Bradley
Tip the world over on its side and everything loose will land in Los Angeles.
