2010 is a time of confluence â€“ when renewed energy, forward-thinking federal policy and increasingly complex livability challenges are converging. Thereâ€™s never been a better time for Rail~Volution to take place! For four days in October, the best and brightest ideas on livability will be debated, researched, tested and shared. Rail~Volution in Portland will be the scene of a living, breathing laboratory with many opportunities for exchanging ideas, understanding new concepts and shaping effective strategies, both inside conference rooms and outside on the streets.
Take the opportunity to work in ground-breaking partnerships with policy makers at all levels to build more livable places â€“ regardless of their size, shape, demographics, location or economies. Rail~Volution provides you with several opportunities to learn how to leverage these collaborations to your advantage â€“ from the new formal partnership between HUD, DOT and the EPA, to informal alliances across organizations and municipalities.
Your stories and lessons learned, your take on new policies and your wisdom gained through innovative best practices, will guide the conversation. Â Come be a part of the Rail~Volution!
