Reducing Portland's Carbon Footprint - League of Women Voters of Portland Civic Education Program
Location: Multnomah County Building, 501 SE Hawthorne, Portland
Did you know that the City of Portland and Multnomah County have a Climate Action Plan that provides a road map for cutting our carbon emissions? If successful, by 2050 we will cut our carbon emissions by 80 percent. There is a role for everyone: government, businesses, and individuals.
The League of Women Voters of Portland (LWVPDX) presents an educational panel discussion to explore how Portland is working to reduce its carbon footprint. The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability will give an overview of the plan, including the goals and our progress so far. The Northwest Earth Institute will explain what individuals can do to lower their personal carbon footprint, and will offer opportunities for involvement in Earth Day activities and beyond. Local businesses will discuss what they are doing to thrive and grow while lowering the carbon footprint of their businesses.
If you are interested in what our city is doing to reduce our carbon footprint and what this will mean to you, please join this panel discussion. The event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30pm.
The program is funded in part by a grant from the MBF. It will be recorded by MetroEast Community Media for rebroadcast, and available on the LWVPDX website. For more information, contact Marion McNamara, Civic Education Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
