L'intento del Petalo "EQUITY" (Equità) è quello di trasformare gli schemi esistenti, per favorire un vero senso inclusivo di comunità che è giusto ed equo a prescindere dal "background", dall'età, dalla classe sociale, dalla razza, dal genere o dall'orientamento sessuale di ognuno. Una società che abbraccia tutte le sfaccettature dell'umanità e consente la dignità di un accesso egualitario e di un trattamento equo è una civiltà nella posizione migliore per prendere decisioni che possano proteggere e ripristinare l'ambiente naturale che circonda ognuno di noi.

Construction and demolition activity creates nearly a quarter of the Portland metropolitan region’s annual waste stream, sending thousands of tons of reusable material to the landfill each year. In addition to this unnecessary waste, the typical method of site clearance for redevelopment—mechanical demolition—represents a potential health hazard through dispersal of toxics like lead and asbestos.
We live in a water paradigm defined by 19th century laws, 20th century infrastructure, and a 21st century climate and population.

The event will focus on the water history of the west, Colorado River Issues, the C.A.P., water banking and ground water recharge.
The International Living Future Institute’s™ JUST™ program is a voluntary disclosure program and tool for all types and sizes of organizations. The JUST™ program provides an innovative transparency platform for organizations to reveal much about their operations, including how they treat their employees and where they make financial and community investments. In a similar fashion to the Living Building Challenge’s Declare® Program, the JUST™ Program acts as a “nutrition label” for socially just and equitable organizations.
