The quality of our environment is something that affects all of us, and it will take action at all levels of society to reach our goals for a sustainable future. SE Uplift supports neighborhood-based sustainability projects and aims to expand both capacity and knowledge within the larger coalition community, individual neighborhood associations and committees. We are dedicated to working with volunteer groups to find creative ways to reduce the carbon footprint of their neighborhoods, while also building a sense of community.
We provide project development support for neighborhood groups working toward a more sustainable community by helping neighborhood groups access community partners, tools, skills, and best practices. Projects we have helped develop in the past include Solarize Portland, Neighborhood Climate Action and the SE Portland Tool Lending Library.
Do you have items in your home that are difficult to dispose of? This is your chance for a truly rewarding spring cleaning! Neighborhood Associations use their cleanups to raise money for projects in their communities—and you can contribute by dropping off any and all unwanted bulky waste and hard to recycle items that may be taking up valuable space in your home! It is a win-win! Click here to learn more and to find out if your neighborhood is hosting a 2013 cleanup!
Ever wondered how to start a community garden? Or how to integrate renewable energy sources at the neighborhood level?
In our quarterly neighborhood sustainability workshops participants will have the opportunity to learn about innovative neighborhood projects ranging from winterizing homes to yard shares and urban farms; rain gardens and water management; unimproved roadways to alternative transportation. The possibilities are almost endless! For more information on upcoming workshops click here!
We work with neighborhood associations to create sustainability committees to be a resource for their community. You can find out what your neighborhood is working on here.
