Whether we know it or not, we are not prepared to deal with a large-scale disaster like the impending Cascadia Subduction Zone Earthquake. But while there's time, we can take huge steps to creating a disaster-ready neighborhood that will adapt and thrive in a post-collapse world. Sounds overwhelming? Like all big problems, it could be, but it's mostly a fun get-to-know-your-neighbor challenge that will improve our lives regardless of whether the Big One strikes within our lifetime. And if it does, we'll be much better prepared to successfully emerge from the aftermath.
If you are motivated to know how you can help avoid neighborhood tragedy, please help with the planning effort that will bring workshops and fun activities to your block. Contact Sustainability Rep. Jonathan portlandearthcare [at] gmail [dot] com for more information.
