Climate Emergency Discussion with City of Portland Staff

March 9, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Climate Emergency Discussion with City of Portland Staff

When – Monday, March 9, 5:30 – 6:30pm
Where – 350PDX, 1820 NE 21st Avenue, Portland

The Climate Emergency is upon us and cities and towns all over the world are issuing Climate Emergency Declarations to call for greater local efforts to curb the climate crisis.

The City of Portland has released a draft Climate Emergency Declaration to show “that the City understands the urgency of the issue and how our role must shift toward taking even bolder actions that center the communities on the frontlines of climate change.”

At 350PDX, we believe that local action is critical to address the root causes of climate disruption. But we have a lot of questions about this policy. For example,  what will the impacts of this climate emergency declaration be as it is currently written? What changes must be made to the draft to ensure that this policy boldly advances climate justice?

Please join us on Monday, March 9, to learn more about the City’s plans. 350PDX is hosting a presentation and Q & A on the proposed Climate Emergency Declaration with Alisa Kane and Amanda Watson. Alisa Kane is the Climate Action Manager at the City of Portland Bureau of Planning and Sustainability. Amanda Watson is Senior Policy Advisor to Mayor Ted Wheeler.

Bring your ideas and your questions!

In solidarity,

Emily, Brooke, Ellen, Anissa & the 350PDX City/County Watchdog Team
