Learn to Live Car-Free

From the Southeast Uplift online newsletter:

Community Conversations
Sunnyside-Centenary United Methodist Church 3520 SE Yamhill Tuesday, February 17

Transition Sunnyside is a project of the Sunnyside Neighborhood Association’s Sustainability Committee to inspire a community-level conversation about how to begin shifting our patterns of living away from a heavy reliance on fossil fuels (oil, gas, grid-supplied electricity) and toward more local alternatives for food, transport, household energy and water.

The lecture series will feature films, guest speakers, round table discussions and workshops.

The February conversation will feature a round table on living and getting around car-free in Portland.

  1. Oh, and I am already car-free but might try to go to it. And I should note that the Clackamas County Sunnyside probably wouldn’t be the best place to try to get people to be car-free. (And no that’s not TriMet’s fault, but the fault of subsidies/policies/etc that discourage density and pedestrian-friendly design. Besides hampering efficient transit, they also hamper walking and biking.)
