Portland Community College, Cascade Campus

Call for Proposals is now open.

During this monumental time in history, it is essential to be educated, connect with good people, find hope, and discover new ways to make a difference as we collectively advance sustainability initiatives in our region. To do so, join GPSEN and our co-sponsor Portland Community College for our annual Sustainability Symposium. This year’s theme is “Building Bridges to Sustainability.”

We will highlight cutting-edge academic and community research on sustainability issues in the greater Portland region, with a focus on collaboration, diversity, innovative problem-solving, and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In addition to opening and closing keynote speakers, the event will feature faculty, student, and community presentations, workshops, a poster session, an art exhibit, tabling, an award ceremony, and a reception.

Call for Proposals is now open.

We invite you to submit a proposal to be included in the Symposium. Proposals will be accepted through December 15. Nomination forms can be updated after submission through the deadline.

Come join us in learning about and celebrating the amazing, innovative sustainability work in our region. Interested in becoming a sponsor? Please contact us for more details.
