Local Matters - design driven by urban conditions | Nuno Soares
Static Preview

We all like to discover new cities and are attracted by their special characters, but how do we extract these characters and put them into our everyday life? Nuno will share with us his experiences of living away from home and using local elements in his design and architecture. Nuno Soares is an architect and urban planner based in Macau since 2003, spreading his practice through architectural design, teaching, and research. He founded and directs the CURB – Center for Architecture and Urbanism, a non-profit organization with the mission to promote research, education, production, and diffusion of knowledge in the fields of architecture and urbanism, taking local issues to a global audience. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Hiding Climate Risk
Static Preview

Jason Mark of Sierra Magazine explains that we can't ignore climate risks where we live. Climate risk concealed by insurance companies and real estate agents will come to the surface when "the horizon of the 30-year mortgage starts to run up against very serious flooding and sea-level rise."

Sustainable Human Launches New Gift-Based Economic System
Static Preview

Find out how you can participate in creating a new economic system that helps humanity to live in harmony with each other and the planet: http://sustainablehuman.com/

The mission of Sustainable Human is to assist in creating and promoting a new economic system based on the collective voluntary gifts of everyday people. The goal is to transition from our current, scarcity-based economic system to a new system capable of creating abundance for all. Bypassing the monetary system, we will voluntarily collaborate on projects aimed at creating goods and services that are given freely to the world, helping to create a bottom-up, participatory, global gift economy.

After 7+ years of holding space for a conversation about the deep underlying roots of our many sustainability-related crises, the time has come to be more proactive towards a solution.

We recognize at the very root of many of our systemic issues is an economic system that measures progress and success in only one metric - growth or profit. Economic growth means consuming more resources each year than were consumed in the prior year, which means that more of Nature must be turned into product for human consumption. The scale has reached ecocidal proportions.

At the same time, fewer people are able to meet their needs from the present economic system as wealth inequality only continues to grow. Complicating matters is the fact that technology is rapidly replacing human workers in a variety of ways in both the virtual and creative markets. The idea of income being attached to work is coming undone.

We need a new economy and it is going to be up to each of us to co-create one.

Sustainable Human is creating a new, voluntary, global gift economy called the Sustainable Human Gift Economy Network (powered by Hylo - an emerging, open-source social network designed to help communities to collaborate). Its purpose is to transcend the economics of scarcity and transition humanity into the economy capable of delivering sustainable abundance for all.

The idea is simple.

We all have a gift to give. When we work together in sharing our gifts, we are able to accomplish amazing achievements. However, most ideas we create are limited by the need to make a profit. No longer.

Now we can voluntarily work together using our unique gifts and skills to create anything we want and give it freely to the world. As more people decide to join the gift economy, the size and scope of the gifts will grow to a point where people will be able to meet some of their needs through this economy, reducing the need for us to participate in the life-destroying, soul-crushing, industrial, growth economy.

The End Of Suburbia (as we know it) Trailer
Static Preview

Trailer for movie End of Suburbia. Since World War II North Americans have invested much of their newfound wealth in suburbia. It has promised a sense of space, affordability, family life and upward mobility. As the population of suburban sprawl has exploded in the past 50 years, so too has the suburban way of life become embedded in the American consciousness. Suburbia, and all it promises, has become the American Dream.  Entire movie here on YouTube.

PDNA Safe Rest Village Meeting #1
Static Preview

(March 10, 2022) An example of a neighborhood association calling together to discuss the location of a Safe Rest Village in the Downtown neighborhood. Safe Rest Villages provide shelter and case management with wraparound behavioral and mental health services. Presently the sidewalks of Downtown and Old Town have grown crowded with people "living" in tents. SRVs are seen as a more humane alternative. 

PDNA-sponsored Q&A session focused on the proposed Safe Rest Village Naito Parkway site.

Panel included Portland City Commissioner Dan Ryan and Multnomah County Commissioner Sharon Meieran. Questions were submitted by neighborhood residents in advance of this session.
