Vision 2030

Vision 2030 is a team of teachers, volunteers and nonprofit and governmental organizations who support a local, place-based approach to educate middle and high school students about Portland’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 50 percent from 1990 levels by 2030.

Our team offers the Keystone Lesson on Climate Solutions and we promote related lessons taught by partners. Outside of the class, we promote student-centered climate solutions projects, and we help organize fairs so students can learn about different climate career paths. Our teamwork is organized by SAGE.
