Mobility 2030 A Decade of Opportunity
May 08, 2020
By 2030, patterns of mobility around the Portland region have dramatically changed — for the better. How did we do it?
This was the question asked by students in the Collaborative Design MFA / Design Systems MA Strategy + Foresight class.
Twenty-two experts joined faculty member Howard Silverman and the class in a deliberative exercise, proposing and prioritizing strategies for the future of regional transportation. To facilitate this process, we partnered with the online Mesydel (www.mesydel.com) collective intelligence platform. In December 2019, we hosted a public exhibition of our findings, where we also facilitated two participatory processes.
The report on the Mobility 2030 deliberation is available here.

Participatory Action Research (PAR) is a method that is integral to our design thinking in the MFA in Collaborative Design + MA in Design Systems, in that 'it is a method of research that relies on purposeful engagement with with participants to deeply study human-centered problems and ignite action towards positive change'.
