Learn how Portland reduced their greenhouse gas emissions while their population grew. They created a detailed Climate Action Plan: our cities can too.
Come hear inspiring climate planner Susan Anderson describe how the City of Portland and Multnomah County brought greenhouse gas reductions from goal to reality. Cities are important, because they account for 70% of greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. Our local cities have set goals in the King County-Cities Climate Collaboration (K4C). But we aren’t meeting those goals. How can we—residents, county and city staff, and council members—learn from Portland’s work in climate action planning? Come and find out!
People for Climate Action members organized and paid for this event.
