Green Opportunity Knocks in Los Angeles

Last year’s Opportunity Green Sustainable Business Conference at UCLA featured presentations on everything from Live Earth and Ethos Water to sustainable branding and chair design, and so it’s never too early to start thinking about this year’s event (November 7-8). That’s part of the idea behind Room 367, a “networking group for young, green-minded professionals” that launches with an Opportunity Green-hosted party next Tuesday evening at L.A.’s Architecture and Design Museum. Addressing the organic hors d’oeuvre-munching crowd will be Michael Danenberg, COO of GOOD Magazine; Maria Giudice, CEO of Hot Design Studio; and Scott Mattoon, Western U.S. Chief Architect for Sun Microsystems. And after you’ve flooded yourself with green beverages, check out the museum’s current exhibition “After the Flood: Building on Higher Ground,” which presents proposed replacement housing and redevelopment in post-Katrina New Orleans. Then take another drink every time someone mentions “Brad” (Mr. Pitt if you’re nasty), whose Make It Right Foundation is among the featured contributors to the exhibition.
