The Street Trust's 2020 Active Transportation Summit will be March 18 & 19, 2020, at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland.
The Street Trust is now accepting proposals for workshops, presentations, and panel discussions. To submit your proposal, follow this link and complete the brief form by 8:00 pm on Friday, November 22. The Summit Planning Committee will confirm proposals in December.
The guiding theme for the 2020 Summit is Climate Action - Transportation Justice. How can our transportation investments, programs, and plans impact the crisis of climate change? How can we improve transportation access and outcomes for low-income people and people of color? How do we move from knowledge of these challenges to action? Proposals may address the theme head-on or as a facet of a larger project or program.
We value community-driven processes and solutions and encourage applications from youth, grassroots advocates, and community groups whose primary focus may not be on active transportation. Proposals that demonstrate how transportation choices intersect with other community concerns and goals are especially welcome. We value racial diversity and perspectives from different geographies. You are welcome to propose a presentation as an individual or in a group.
We look forward to your presentation at the 2020 Active Transportation Summit!
