Look Up and See Green
URBN, 4th floor terrace
3:30-6:30pm
Free

Look up and See Green is a student driven, collaborative initiative to lead the Portland Metropolitan Region in sustainability. Last year, this project created a sustainable community gathering place on the 4th floor of Urban Center by bringing together student groups to implement ideas of rainwater collection strategies, utilization of our rooftops for growing food and a university wide discussion on sustainability initiatives. The Look Up and See Green team would like to invite the campus community to the terrace for an open house where we will be compiling ideas for the 2009-10 projects. The celebration will have music and food so be sure to drop by!
