Event Details

Why has the urbanization of our species resulted in cities providing the greatest challenges to our survival as well as our greatest promise? Osvaldo “Ozzie” González is an urban ecologist and changemaker who has already made his mark on the world and, according to his wife of 19 years, is “just getting warmed up”. He will take LinkedInLocal PDX from the industrial age to the present day city exploring how over the last 200 years technological advances have provided new possibilities for urban living. We will learn how environmental, social, and economic instability is prompting innovations in how cities function and who they function for.

Ozzie is a candidate to become Portland’s next Mayor.

Trained as an Environmental Scientist and Architect, Ozzie has dedicated his career to designing solutions for cities that bridge environmental health with community prosperity.

Ozzie is also the Owner of P3 Consulting—a firm dedicated to helping solve city problems in the interests of people, planet, and profit. Ozzie has served as the Global Sustainability Director for CH2M Hill.
