SUMMIT KEYNOTE ADDRESS

The Power of Small – the Environmental, Economic and Social Benefits of Building Small

Alan Durning of the Sightline Institute and Dee Williams of Portland Alternative Dwellings will highlight the power of small spaces to improve individuals’ lives and whole cities. These authors and advocates for change will inspire you to join the local and global movements toward creating small and sustainable housing. Durning will offer research-based solutions for housing policy challenges, and Williams will share her compelling personal story of why she down-sized into a house the size of a parking spot and has lived there for ten years. Both Durning and Williams provide insight about how personal choices can inform broader community action, and how positive change really does begin at home.
