Happy July!  

June was a busy month for GPSEN and our partners, with the launch of our Think Tank, the success of Lewis & Clark's Ecopsychology Symposium, and encouraging news from GPSEN's project management report.  We will continue forward with these efforts this summer as we formalize our GPSEN partnership model and development projects and will keep everyone posted.

In other big news, as the weather heats up, it is encouraging that the City of Portland has approved its new Climate Action Plan. We are also proud of Mayor Hales for being chosen to meet with Pope Francis, at the Vatican, regarding the new encyclical on climate change.   It was an honor to provide recommendations on our regional sustainability work and Global Action Programme efforts to prepare Mayor Hales for his visit with the Pope. 

Would you like to join in the fun?  The annual RCE Conference of the Americas will be hosted in Grand Rapids, Michigan, this year, from August 9-12.  All GPSEN (aka RCE Greater Portland) partners are invited to attend. See more details below.

Plus, don't miss the sustainability events and conferences coming up this summer. We hope that you will enjoy the efforts of so many dedicated individuals and organizations!
