Join us to explore Australian approaches to sustainability and civic engagement in their cities and universities. Michael Cuthill has 17 social sustainability projects currently underway in Australia - and one comparative study of Queensland and Portland in development! We will view Portland's "VisionPDX" project as a case example of our local efforts and consider PSU faculty perspectives on social sustainability in this interactive Fall session!
