Happy 242nd Birthday, Los Angeles!


The world is here; here is the world. 🌎

On Monday, September 4th, the City of Los Angeles celebrates its 242nd birthday. Every year at LA2050, we mark the occasion by publishing an original e-book.

This year’s book is entitled: “Global Ideas For A Better LA."

Click here for a mobile version.

The book features the words of two dozen diplomats from the LA-based consular corps community, and leaders from the LA social impact community.

The group shares with us concepts from home that they think might translate well into the fabric of LA and international ideas that are already in place here.

They also share their best birthday wishes to the people of the city.

We hope you will take the time to read it, and share it with others.
