Toward One Oregon
Oregon is an incredibly diverse collection of landscapes, economies, and communities. No matter where we live - in an urban, a suburban, or a rural environment - all Oregonians share common needs and aspirations for a sustainable future. Yet myths and local perspectives can keep us from acknowledging and understanding how interdependent all of the regions of the state are on each other.
Join researchers, policymakers, journalists, community leaders and the public who will gather to discuss what links us together and what, strategically are the ways that these links can be strengthened for the benefit of the state.
Panels of researchers from OSU, PSU, and the U of O, and editors of Oregon newspapers will engage in conversations about these issues with each other and with the audience. At the end of the day we hope to have begun to set an agenda of discovery toward one Oregon.
