March 26: Greening Portland
Architecture, city planning and community/environmental activists come together to define a sustainable vision for the future of Portland. How many bioswales and bike lanes are enough? What about widening I-5, or increasing mass transit? How many highrises, parking spaces, and how high is high? There's talk about equity, but is anyone creating it, and how are they doing it?
The Human Access Project is a non-profit with a mission: Transform Portland’s relationship with the Willamette River, and a vision: A city in love with its river. Willie Levenson, the Human Access Project’s Ring Leader, will answer the question - What the hell are we doing? He will explain how an environmental movement, disguised as a beach party, is bringing people to the river, through The Big Float, the River Huggers Recreational Swim Team, the Mayoral Swim, and building beaches in downtown Portland.
