      Portland's Young and the Restless: What does it all mean?
      A Special Forum on Sustainability and the Economy, June 25, 12-2 pm
      (pacific), PSU Urban Center, 506 SW Mill, Room 204
      Live webcast!

      What do 25 to 34 year olds want from cities? And what does it mean for
      the Portland region?
      The U.S. is in the midst of a major demographic shift, one with profound
      implications for the economic health of metropolitan areas. While the
      retirement of baby boomers has been much anticipated, less attention has
      been given to the precipitous decline in the number of young adults
      entering the nation's workforce. This cohort typifies many of the values
      expressed in Richard Florida's creative class. Young and restless, they
      have moved among regions across the country and settled within cities and
      subrubs in different ways than their parents. What does it mean for the
      Portland region and our ability to create a healthy and sustainable
      economy that we are a magnet for this demographic group?

      Please join us for the Portland debut of a year long national study on
      25-34 year old's location choices and demographics conducted by
      Portland-based economist Joe Cortright (http://www.impresaconsulting.com/) and nationally syndicated radio host and community consultant Carol
      Coletta (http://www.smartcityradio.com/smartcityradio/).
