Join us for the highly anticipated GlobalPDX Conference on October 6th, where we will delve deep into “The Intersection of Climate & Human Rights.” This day-long event, taking place from 9am to 4pm, promises to be a transformative experience, bringing together expert speakers, thought leaders, and passionate advocates to explore crucial local and global intersections that impact us all.

Our conference will feature panels that tackle pressing issues at the intersection of policy and environment, economy and sustainable communities, resilience and agriculture, innovation and micromobility, and culminate with a powerful closing plenary on climate action and reduced inequalities. These discussions will provide invaluable insights into the multifaceted challenges we face in addressing climate change and its profound impact on human rights.

One of the highlights of the conference will be the “UnConference” style sessions, where attendees have the opportunity to network, engage in free-form conversations, and reflect on the wealth of knowledge they have gained throughout the day. This interactive format ensures that every participant can actively contribute to the discourse and build meaningful connections with fellow attendees.

Our keynote presentation will be delivered by Our Children’s Trust, an organization at the forefront of the fight for climate justice. Their recent landmark victory in Montana, affirming access to a healthy environment as a fundamental right, has thrust them into the spotlight. This achievement underscores their commitment to using the law as a catalyst for climate action and mobilizing youth-led movements for change. Their inspiring journey serves as a beacon of hope and motivation, showcasing the transformative power of advocacy and legal action in addressing our planet’s most pressing challenges.

Oregon is witnessing a surge in youth-led activism dedicated to preserving our climate, making this conference even more pertinent. We invite Oregon-based professionals in climate, global development, and local leadership to join us in this pivotal moment. Together, we will explore the critical nexus between climate and human rights, learn from visionary leaders, and contribute to the urgent conversation on how we can create a more sustainable and equitable world. Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of the solution and shape our shared future.
