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
