The Healthy Climate Partnership

— filed under:

Oregon faces two major challenges—getting our economy back on track and building a clean energy future.  Luckily, both share a set of common solutions.

With sound investments and smart policies, we can turn around this downturn and make smart, long-term investments in our economy.

We can create thousands of good new jobs.

We can protect existing industries and vulnerable communities.

And we can position Oregon to be a leader the fight to stop global warming.

The Healthy Climate Partnership, a coalition of over 100 public interest groups and businesses from across Oregon, is working to build that brighter future. Join our Healthy Climate Partnership group if you'd like to keep up with the conversation.
