Supporting Neighborhood Schools by Wieden + Kennedy, Portland, OR

As part of GOOD Ideas for Cities Portland, Wieden + Kennedy presents their idea for how to make Portlanders more invested in their local public schools. The team is then joined for a Q&A with GOOD Ideas for Cities’ Alissa Walker and Portland Mayor Sam Adams.

Challenge: Local schools must be supported by the community if they are to be successful. How can our neighborhoods, and institutions in them like businesses, work better to support youth, their educational outcomes and opportunities?

The Office of Mayor Sam Adams: Cary Clarke, Arts and Culture Policy Director; Lisa Libby, Planning and Sustainability Director; Kali Ladd, Education and Youth Policy Director
; Samir Raad, Youth Strategies Policy Coordinator

Wieden + Kennedy: Nick Barham, Eugenie Frerichs, Bernadette Spear, Seth Weisfield, Igor Clark, Patrick Nistler, Jamie Ostrov, Joseph Limauro, Matt Brown
