A Panel Discussion on the Latest Economic Situation in China
House of Louie

Lunch presentation with panel discussion by: - (Moderator) Richard Read, The Oregonian - S. Gregory Borossay, Port of Portland, Manager, Marine Marketing - Joel Enderle, Columbia Sportswear, Sr. Dir. of Footwear Manufacturing - Lisa Graff, Intel Corporation, GM, Server Platforms, Digital Enterprise Group - Amy Hsuan, The Oregonian, staff writer currently reporting on green and solar industries in China

In this global economy, the economic meltdown happening in the U.S. is also affecting economies around the world. China, Oregon’s largest export country in 2008, is being negatively affected. We often see bad news coming out of China, such as:

  • "China’s Slowdown Sends out Aftershocks”,
  • "Jobless Migrants Hit 20 Million as China’s Unemployment Rises”
  • "China’s Small Factories Struggle”, etc.

We have assembled a panel of seasoned business people and professionals who have been working and/or traveling in China to give us a closer look at what is really going on over there and share their insights with us. We will also learn about any implications to the Oregon economy due to the current situation in China. Please bring your questions and join us!

Free showing of "The Crash Course" in three parts Sept. 30th, Oct 28th & Nov 18th
St. Francis Church Dining Hall

The Crash Course seeks to help you understand the nature of some extremely serious challenges and risks to our economy and your future prosperity. Chris Martenson weaves together a number of seemingly disparate topics into a single story, discussing the Economy, Energy, and the Environment... For it is where these fields overlap and intersect that the greatest story of any generation will get told.





Chris Martenson is an author and obsessive financial observer who has made profound changes in his lifestyle because of what he sees coming. He runs a popular website devoted to advancing awareness of the Three“E’s"--the Economy, Energy and the Environment, although most of the focus is on tracking the economy.

Chris is not an economist. He is trained as a scientist, having completed both a Ph.D. and a post-doctoral program in Neurotoxicology at Duke University. Chris’s extensive scientific training guides how he thinks. He gathers data, develops hypotheses, and continually seeks to accept or reject them based on the evidence at hand. He lets the data tell the story.

In addition, Chris has a solid business background, with an MBA in Finance from Cornell with ten years experience in corporate finance and strategic consulting, becoming an executive of a Fortune 300 company.

The main body of Chris' work, The Crash Course, is a dynamic web-based video presentation, bringing together the threads of the “Three E’s,” and explaining why and how the next 20 years will be completely unlike the last 20.

Shown in Three Parts

All 20 sections take 3 hours and 23 minutes to watch in full, with chapters are between 3 and 20 minutes in length.

Green Light Movie...The Sustainable Oroville Project www.facebook.com/greenlightmovie

Green Light Movie…The Sustainable Oroville Open House A call to action for leaders and press.

Being from the Pacific Northwest; you are considered a sustainability thought leader. You are cordially invited to our open house, a free solution based networking event.

Are you looking to get something out of the time you spend at a networking event? Do you attend green networking events to meet new people, or to participate in a solution?

Join the key Sustainable Oroville and Green Light Movie team for an engaging conversation. City leaders are saying YES to “green” through Sustainable Oroville – a civic initiative that already has attracted a canola crushing plant (which will produce canola oil and meal), as well as plans for the nation’s first sustainable, passive haus hotel. Since the launch of this initiative, Oroville is gaining attention from other clean-technology entrepreneurs and sustainability advocates who want to see it succeed.

So what’s the big deal? Oroville isn’t waiting around for the world to change … instead, it’s taking steps to change the world.

Oroville’s journey into sustainability will create a road map that other agriculture-dependent communities can adopt. Capturing this transformation in a documentary film creates a proof-of-concept that can be distributed worldwide. Through conversations with local leaders, business owners and residents, as well as sustainability movement leaders, we will show a grassroots effort creating change we NEED to see in the world.

This is your opportunity to play a part in a "think globally, act locally" solution that is happening right now while being documented in the Green Light Movie, the Sustainable Oroville Project film.

This is not your usual networking event. Stop by anytime between 3pm and 6pm. Stay as long as you like. Get one on one talking time with the thought leader visionaries. Listen to the vision, get questions answered, and see how YOU can intersect your experience, skills, and passion into this movement that is providing a solution to improve qualities of life in our very own Pacific Northwest communities.

Documentary Screening: Closing the Loop - A Film About the Circular Economy Revolution
PSU Smith Memorial Student Union

Join us for a screening of this inspiring film about the future of business, and how business can change the future of our planet. Created by author, filmmaker, and professor, Dr. Wayne Visser, this film takes an optimistic viewpoint to climate change and innovative solutions. Date and Time: June 28, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Location: PSU: Smith Memorial Student Union: Parkway North 1825 SW Broadway, Portland, OR 97201

Cost: $5

Going “circular” refers to the necessary change from our current take-make-waste linear economy to a borrow-use-return circular economy (sometimes also referred to as the zero-waste or cradle-to-cradle economy).

The key takeaway message from Closing the Loop is that moving to a circular economy is not only essential and urgent, but also entirely possible, if we take inspiration from the pioneers, such as those featured in the film, and scale up similar business models, product innovations and customer solutions around the world.

It will not be easy – and there is no “one size fits all” approach, as the varied experiences across three continents show – but the circular economy revolution is imperative. As presenter Dr Visser puts it:

“If we don’t solve this one problem [i.e. moving from a linear to a circular economy], everything else we do, no matter how well-intentioned it is, will be like shifting deck chairs on the Titanic.”

“After years spent working on sustainability, I am convinced that we are on the cusp of a major revolution – nothing short of the next industrial revolution. The time for fear-mongering and demonising companies has past. Now is the time for innovative solutions and positive action. This is nowhere more true than in the do-or-die challenge of creating a circular economy.”

“We still have much work to do, but our task could not be more clear. So get inspired and, to quote Gandhi – a sustainability luminary before his time – be the change you want to see in the world.”

Stay afterward for a brief discussion about the circular economy and how you can apply these powerful principles to your life and business.

Event is co-sponsored by Consious Capitalism Portland and MonicaBourgeau.com.
