Attending this event?

On the tenth anniversary of the Oregon Active Transportation Summit, we are giving a platform to the bright minds that are taking on the intersecting issues of climate change and transportation in an equitable and sustainable landscape. During this year’s Oregon Active Transportation Summit we will examine how our transportation investments, programs and plans can leave us all with clean, equitable solutions for the future of our planet and community.

This year’s virtual Summit April 27-30 consists of workshops, panels, round table discussions, mobile workshops, professional training, and a keynote address from the National Association of City Transportation Officials’ Ronnie Matthew Harris with a special introduction by Portland Transportation Commissioner, Jo Ann Hardesty.
