Eco is a new 2-day festival & ecosystem gathering centered on sustainable innovation.
Our first event in Los Angeles (Q4 2023) will move beyond the pre pandemic formula of traditional VIP panels & networking - Eco will provide a platform to really listen to the people and communities most in need of solutions, and shall identify breakthrough innovations that can be scaled for impact.
Ag Innovation Showcase (AIS).
We’re proud to have curated the world’s leading Ag & Food event for 13 years. Eco LA 23 builds upon the success of AIS, and now spans Larta Institute’s six impact areas.
Our mission is to foster science & technology innovation for a sustainable planet. Eco LA 23 will span the convergence of innovation across our six critical impact areas: Environment & Climate, Agriculture & Food, CleanTech & Energy, BioSciences & Healthcare, Education & Community, and Marine & Oceans.
Six threads of programming focused on moving beyond talking to enabling impact & change - from communities & people, to discussion, policy, showcases, connections and funding.
Eco LA 2023 is a multidisciplinary experience designed to foster innovation for a sustainable planet – giving a voice to local communities and supporting innovators who can provide solutions for impact. Featured lineup & timing will be announced in the coming months.
