      THE FORUM ON SUSTAINABILITY AND THE ECONOMY
      Free event sponsored by the New Economy Observatory at the Institute of
      Portland Metropolitan Studies
      School of Urban Studies and Planning, Portland State University

      Please join us for:
      Northwest Environmental Watch's "Cascadia Scorecard"
      Friday, March, 12, 3-5 pm, pst
      Clark Williams-Derry, Research Director, Northwest Environmental Watch

      This March, Northwest Environment Watch (NEW) will release the first
      edition of the Cascadia Scorecard, a new gauge of regional progress on
      seven trends key to our future: health, economy, population, energy,
      sprawl, forests, and pollution. The Scorecard finds that Oregon has made
      gains in compact growth and forest stewardship over the past decade, but
      lags significantly in energy efficiency and economic security for its
      residents.
      On Friday, March 12, from 3:00 to 5:00 pm please join Northwest
      Environment Watch researcher director Clark Williams-Derry at Portland
      State University's Forum on Sustainability and Economy for a briefing on
      the trends monitored by the Cascadia Scorecard and a look at how Portland
      stacks up.
      This free event, sponsored by the New Economy Observatory at the Institute
      of Portland Metropolitan Studies, School of Urban Studies and Planning,
      Portland State University, provides a look at these slow-changing but
      critical trends that shape Oregon's future. The event will include NEW's
      maps of smart growth in the Pacific Northwest's seven largest cities,
      including Portland and Eugene, animated maps of 30 years of clearcuts in
      the Central Cascades and southern Oregon, and a discussion of real-world
      places that have used innovative policies to set these trends in the right
      direction.

      These events will be held at PSU's Urban Center, 506 SW Mill Portland,
      Distance Learning Wing Room 204 (Campus map at: http://www.pdx.edu/campus/), and will also be broadcast live on the web at http://www.media.pdx.edu (click on Distance Learning Center Stream #1 or #2). On-line viewers may
      participate in real time, submitting questions via email to imsforum@...

      Scorecard contact Leigh Sims at 206-447-1880 ext. 109, leigh@..., or visit www.northwestwatch.org/indicators.

      The Forum on Sustainability and the Economy is a monthly discussion series
      about issues related to livability and economic development in the
      Portland-Vancouver metropolitan region. In this case, we are using the
      term livability broadly but specifically to bring issues of environmental
      quality, social justice, and evolving urbanity specifically into
      conjunction with economic prosperity. We seek to bring together community
      members, faculty, and students to critically reflect on the interplay
      between sustainability and the economy. Our objective is to seek greater
      public understanding and discussion of sustainability as a foundation for
      rather than merely a byproduct of sound economic growth.
