2019 Model the Way Sustainable Leadership Awards




Lloyd EcoDistrict is a living laboratory for sustainable community development that models change at a neighborhood level. We bring together residents, organizations, and businesses in Lloyd to educate, set goals, combine resources, and spark action. Lloyd is working collaboratively as a neighborhood to reduce energy and water use, lower waste generation, and promote an equitable and flourishing community with a thriving urban ecosystem.

Model the Way Sustainable Leadership Awards recognize those amazing individuals, businesses, and organizations that are actively engaged in the community and acting as leaders in sustainability efforts. They are rolling up their sleeves and exploring new approaches to some of the most difficult issues we face in creating truly sustainable, equitable, and resilient communities here in the Portland area.

Winners will be announced at the Model the Way Awards Ceremony on April 11, 2019 and on our website, social media platforms, and throughout our network.
