Dear EcoWiki Community,
Happy International Worker's Day Portland! Hopefully you are enjoying it with sustainability and unity on the mind. We also wish everyone a smooth midterm week and transition into the second half of spring term.
Please take a moment to check out TransportPSU, a group of PSU students working toward sustainable transportation solutions at Portland State. They recently received a grant from the Institute for Sustainable Solutions (ISS) to work on this issue and would appreciate the help of PSU students. They have created a student survey that will help them gather needed data.
Find survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/385SSJQ.
Have a wonderful week,
