Speaking of Portland…

The Towards Carfree Cities conference is a week away!

Towards Carfree Cities poster

In case you missed the first mention back in April, here are the relevant details:

What: A conference that “brings together people from around the world who work to promote practical alternatives to car dependence”
When: June 16-20, 2008
Where: Portland. Oregon (You can take the train!)
How much: Check the registration rates on the conference site.

Some stuff I forgot to mention the first time around:

1) The conference’s cool motto (a good enough reason to attend, as far as I’m concerned): “Live Free or Drive.” Props to the person who thought that up.

2) The free “Public Day” on the 17th:

We are committed to making this conference as inclusive as possible. If you are unable to attend for the entire week, please consider participating in our free events, such as Public Day on June 17th which features our keynote speakers, programs on Carfree Family Living and Portland’s Freeway History. Public Day is free and open to the entire community…

See you on TriMet!
