Recode recently embarked on a month long research trip to Sweden & Finland with researchers from the Rich Earth Institute and PSU to learn about emerging Nordic models for regulating onsite sanitation in a way that incentivizes innovation to protect water and public health. This presentation is a chance for the public to find out the latest on the ground info about ecological sanitation systems triumphs and challenges in Scandinavia before Recode presents to regulatory agencies later in December. The first half will be a presentation by Recode director, Molly Winter, with a (hopefully) fun cheat sheet to track your understanding of performance based codes and ecological sanitation. We’ll examine the regulatory framework of performance based codes in action, the details of what is and isn’t working for specific designs, and the social elements that have supported a transition to performance based, or technology neural codes. **There will be a less regulation focused, more design focused presentation on January 14th hosted by the Portland Permaculture Meetup. (http://www.meetup.com/Portland-Permaculture-Meetup/events/226672063/) *If you're outside of Portland and want to see the slide deck and call in contact Molly at recodenow dot org. http://www.facebook.com/events/1095156187163634/

Join Renew Oregon staff for a free viewing party and discussion of "Chasing Ice" - an award winning documentary that chronicles one photographer's journey to the Arctic, and his transition from climate skeptic to environmental advocate. Following the film there will be a discussion where you can tell us what you do to keep Oregon healthy, clean and efficient. What do you love most about Oregon that should be protected for future generations? How will a clean energy economy help you, your family or your community? How can we harness the creativity and innovation in our state to Renew Oregon?
