Staff with the Londer Learning Center (LLC) won the group award for sustainability.
At-risk adults in Multnomah County, many of whom live in poverty, are usually left out of discussions about sustainability and climate change. An initiative in the summer of 2015 presented the county’s most vulnerable and diverse adult learners with a chance to learn about the root causes of climate change, and how to take action, thanks to LLC staff.
