Welcome to our southwest neighborhood team, which includes neighborhoods on the south and west sides of Portland, from PSU to Hillsdale, Multnomah Village, Beaverton and Lake Oswego.
Our ‘How to Save our Planet’ series of presentations are now available to groups and community organizations. The series consists of four one hour programs that include video segments and discussions focused on changes that can slow and eventually stop human induced global warming. The programs include:
- How to Save Our Planet – There is much we can do to help ensure a livable planet for those alive now and in the future. Find out more in this introduction.
- How to Replace Fossil Fuels – There are ways to change our energy use and reduce impacts to our climate. Advances in sustainable energy, and the adoption of electric vehicles and appliances can slow global warming and prevent some of the worst outcomes of climate change.
- How to Rewild Our Planet – Discover how effective protection and management of forests, grasslands and savannahs combined with the restoration of degraded habitats are essential to conserve biodiversity, meet our global climate goals, and sustain a thriving food system.
- How to Save Our Oceans – The ocean may seem vast and indestructible, but it is now in serious trouble. Learn about sustainable seafood choices, how to reduceplastic pollution, and the latest on the United Nations’ treaty on the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity.

Our new yard sign campaign was launched in July. Team members will be canvasing highly traveled areas and attending community events to distribute signs to residents who support Climate Action Now! Street corner demonstrations were resumed in June. Volunteers gather weekly to raise awareness of the climate emergency at these sign-waving events at various locations in Southwest neighborhoods.
