During this “Climate Conversations with BPS” event, participants shared a word to describe Portland when we reach net zero carbon, and this word cloud reflects that vision.

In this second “Climate Conversations” event, you’ll have an opportunity to be a part of an interactive discussion of 100% clean electricity and what it really means for community members. Learn how City of Portland staff, partners in the public and private sector, and you can make difference for our climate future.

Climate action is challenging work, and we are all in this together. From businesses, government agencies, and nonprofits to actions and engagement from community members, everyone has a role in helping reach our collective carbon reduction goals by 2050.

Join the conversation and share your ideas and goals as well as ask questions. This is an opportunity for you to explore how policy and community actions work together to get us to net zero.

Climate Conversations

Climate staff and community members have an opportunity to discuss what what we’re doing to meet communitywide climate goals, answer questions, and explore more together.

If you haven’t already, check out the first event, which introduced the Climate Emergency Workplan and offered details on three projects: clean electricity for all, the clean industry initiative, and climate and health standards for existing buildings.

Learn more about Portland's sources of emissions and trends, and our pathways to net-zero carbon by 2050.
