PORTLAND
NEXT GENERATION SCHOOLS SYMPOSIUM
Portland Values Sustainability Over the past two decades Portland has become an international leader in sustainable design. Our city has had more buildings per capita receive LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the US Green Building council than any other US city. Portland was the first US city to reduce its greenhouse gas levels. Urban Planning Portland has eschewed the path of many other US cities that sprawl endlessly with spaghetti-like freeways, lifeless subdivisions and banal strip malls. We’ve already re-imagined much of the central city in burgeoning redeveloped neighborhoods like the Pearl District and South Waterfront. Design Capital Portland in the past decade has become one of America’s foremost centers for design of all sorts, with iconic brands like Nike, Wieden & Kennedy, Ziba and Columbia Sportswear based here as well as a robust high-tech startup community. Companies and institutions come to Portland because of its vibrant urban culture and pioneering approaches.
