ROSE CITY WELLNESS WEEK

MISSION

Rose City Wellness Week is a platform that exists to expand the Portland community’s concept of wellness through meaningful social events that impact and amplify the work being done by Changemakers.

What is a Changemaker?

A Changemaker is a person, organization or business that prioritizes making a positive impact in the community and the world through action, strategic partnership and/or financial investment.

VISION

Our vision is a city that defines itself by the wellness of its community members. Measured by the eight dimensions of wellness.

  • Physical - Recognizing the need for physical activity, healthy foods, and sleep

  • Environmental - Good health by occupying pleasant, stimulating environments that support well-being

  • Occupational - Personal satisfaction and enrichment from one’s work

  • Financial - Satisfaction with current and future financial situations

  • Intellectual - Recognizing creative abilities and finding ways to expand knowledge and skills

  • Social - Developing a sense of connection, belonging, and a well-developed support system

  • Spiritual - Expanding a sense of purpose and meaning in life

  • Emotional - Coping effectively with life and creating satisfying relationships

VALUES

Rose City Wellness Week aims to:

  • Engage the general public through meaningful social events.

  • Educate them on how to support nonprofits that serve our community through building relationships.

  • Empower our most vulnerable community members by improving systems they live in, the Portland community.

NAMING

Portland's nickname (Rose City) was inspired by a small gesture of generosity. A man allowing neighbors to freely clip roses from his front yard, and by doing so, changed the landscape of this city forever. Native or transplant we are all connected by the city we live in. We want to encourage individuals to take small steps to be kinder, not only to each other but especially to themselves.

2018 PROGRAMS (Inaugural Year)

September 17th, 2018 kicked of a week-long series of experiences activated and led by Masters in Health & Wellness. These programs focused on six dimensions of holistic wellness (Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Social, Spiritual, and Environmental). Throughout the week there were opportunities to engage and learn how movement, art, social interactions, music, education, and food play into our overall well-being.
