Headlines from Worldchanging Seattle (10/17/08)

At Worldchanging Seattle, we try to address topics of sustainability at the city level. This week, we covered emerging clean technology in nearby Oregon, as well as innovative public art, the benefits of compact homes, and a local expert's insight into what makes a livable downtown. Even if you don't live in Seattle, we encourage you to see what we've been up to:

Downtown Livability: A Conversation with Peter Steinbrueck
In order to achieve true livability and a real check on sprawl, we need to build neighborhoods downtown that appeal to long-term residents.

STart on Broadway: A Photo Essay
In a stroke of genius, Sound Transit offered up demolition-bound storefronts on Capitol Hill to local artists, who filled them with temporary installations.

Outside Ideas: Green Jobs for Salem, Oregon
The fervor around green jobs as a potentially economy-saving investment continues to build around the U.S., and a new plant in Salem, Oregon is about to add proof to the theory.

Solar Power For Real in the Northwest
We love this smart Portland project, which takes advantage of a huge swath of unused urban real estate that would otherwise just be baking passively under the sun.

Seattle to the World: Compact Homes
Building a market for smart, small homes may help turn the tide toward sustainable development.

Are you here in Seattle? We'd like to hear from you! Check out the local blog and leave comments, or contact editor[at]Worldchanging[dot]com if you have ideas or would like to write.

As a recently unemployed landscaper, organic gardener, entomologist with her Enviro-Sci degree that is tirelessly searching for a Green career in Seattle I salute you! When I've nearly given up to the pressure of potential environmental collapse, you give me just enough hope and inspiration to fight the green fight. Cheers!

I live on Vancouver island and just heard your staticy interview on 94.9 as I drove down the highway. Normally the sound quality on such a rainy day would have me change stations, but I was so impressed by how articulate and insightful Robin and Perrin were to express their views I kept listening. Wow one of the best delivered dialogues I have heard in a very long time. Perrin, you would make an awesome writer the way you mix colloquial and intellectual reference in the same sentence to really offer a vivid and specific sense of meaning. Your language paints with the full palette (sp?) of visual expression, but most importantly mixes them all together on the same canvass to offer depth and context and texture. Wow, I was blown away by what artists and intellectuals you two are and you speak more accurately then most urban planners. Really inspiring to find such talents are about in any field. Clearly you could successful at anything.
