Over the weekend, OEC’s Andrea Durbin took the stage with the Dalai Lama in Portland! Watch a rebroadcast of the Environmental Summit to hear more about climate change, local leadership and a host of other topics.

Dalai LamaWe’re thrilled (and still a bit in disbelief) that Oregon Environmental Council’s Executive Director, Andrea Durbin, shared the stage with the Dalai Lama on May 11 in Portland!

Andrea spoke alongside His Holiness, Governor John Kitzhaber, and renowned environmental activist David Suzuki. The event, “Universal Responsibility and the Global Environment” was hosted by Maitripa College as part of a multi-day series on environmental awareness and action.

Congratulations Andrea on this tremendous honor! And thank you to His Holiness, Maitripa College, and all the other organizers and participants for putting together Portland’s Environmental Summit!
