Join us for an exciting two-day Summit addressing sustainability and Extension’s outreach role. ESS2016 will provide an avenue to transition the ongoing conversations around sustainability outreach into an action plan. You will hear from and engage in conversations with speakers on topics ranging from sustainability youth education to energy independent communities (topics may vary based on final selection of presentations). We’ll be meeting and staying in the boutique-styleEmbassy Suites Downtown
located only two blocks from the MAX light rail system.
The Summit’s session are organized around the five themes of sustainability: Climate/Air, Food, Energy, Land, and Water. Following the interactive presentations you’ll participate in session roundtable discussions.
Held for the first time in 2013, this popular event promises optional pre-Summit field trips, two days packed full of interactive presentations, opportunities for networking, field trips to local businesses and universities with sustainable practices, and all that Portlandia
has to offer!
