What matters to our community right now? Are we engaged in decision making processes the impact us? Are our needs and hopes being met? Do we know our neighbors? What does it mean to participate in civic life?
Open City nights in Congress Square Park are opportunities for neighbors to gather to ask questions and share information about issues important to our shared community life. Co-presented with local organizations, you can expect these evenings to be artful, participatory, informative and compelling.
All invited, all welcome.
Open City feat. Portland’s One Climate Future Initiative
Our businesses, neighborhoods, and way of life are worth protecting. Knowing our future will be impacted by climate change, we have a responsibility to work together to see that our communities continue to be places of opportunity. The Cities of Portland and South Portland are taking the lead on this by developing a joint climate action and adaptation plan—One Climate Future: Charting a Course for Portland and South Portland. The goal of this planning process is to make our communities even stronger tomorrow than we are today. But we can’t do this alone. We all need to work together to make it a success.
Open City is a series hosted in Congress Square Park every Wednesday at 6-8pm from June through August. We’ll explore topics related to community life presented in artful ways that spark dialogue.
