The North Pole: Stories of Urban Adaptation — San Francisco Urban Film Festival Panel Discussion
UWA Associate Director Antje Steinmuller will participate in a panel discussion on housing and
gentrification in the Bay Area. The characters of the hilarious and smart new comedy series “The
North Pole” have ingenious solutions to rising rents and climate change, and so do the panelists
as they introduce a few sustainable public policies and innovative design solutions that are
poised to positively impact San Francisco and Oakland, and adaptable to other communities.
