Sharing Ideas: Grassroots Projects Started by Neighbors
What extraordinary things are happening in your neighborhood?


Recognize and learn from the positive things happening in community! Nominate a neighbor, volunteer group, or nonprofit working on a grassroots project that is making a difference.

Community Outreach is seeking panelists to participate in the next upcoming Sharing Ideas Panel. This panel showcases the efforts of everyday people doing extraordinary things throughout Portland.

Three projects will be invited to share the spark that ignited their idea, the tools and strategies used to turn their ideas into action and the hopes for the future of their project. Make connections, exchange ideas and build support for the extraordinary things happening in the community. Our hope is that these events inspire people to initiate similar projects in their own neighborhood.

Submit your nominations online or by phone at 503.546.7499.
