Creating a Sustainable Future

The League of Women Voters of Portland will host a panel discussion on sustainability efforts in the Portland region on February 9th at 7pm. The event will be held in the Board Room of the Multnomah County Building, 501 SE Hawthorne Boulevard, Portland. The event is free, and the public is invited to attend.

Sustainable living is the practice by which consideration for the environment and the economy is balanced with the needs of current and future populations. In the past few years Portland has received international attention for its sustainability practices. How will the local government and the community approach sustainability as the metropolitan area continues to grow? What current efforts are they making to increase, promote and practice sustainability?

Panelists include David Bragdon, Portland Metro Council President; Susan Anderson, Director of the City of Portland’s Bureau of Planning & Sustainability; and Dianne Riley, Equity Agenda Coordinator for the Coalition for a Livable Future. Panelists will discuss policies and programs that promote sustainability, future plans and goals, and ways that local government and the community can work together to implement sustainable practices.

Portland Community Media will broadcast the discussion on Channel 30 live on Tuesday, February 9 at 7 p.m. Repeat broadcasts will be aired on Channel 30 on Friday, February 12, at 10:30 p.m.; Sunday, February 14, at 2:30 p.m.; Tuesday, February 16, at 5:30 p.m.; and Saturday, February 20, at 7:30 a.m.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government.
