A call to all the Regenerators of Cascadia to participate
on the ground
A month filled with presentations, workshops, and field trips
Joe Brewer and the Design School for Regenerating Earth will be among us
Growing from the success of similar events in the great lakes bioregion, we have invited the Design School for Regenerating Earth to join us for a month long “Bioregional Activation Tour” here in Salmon Nation.
Joe is a global leader in bioregional regeneration and system complexity. He is a transdisciplinary scholar with a background in both earth sciences and cognitive sciences. He’s an inspiring speaker and leading-edge systems complexity thinker.
He’s currently doing on-the-ground regeneration work in a 500,000-hectare (~1.5 million-acre) bioregion around Barichara, Colombia, and helping to create a global bioregional network. He is the founder of the Design School for Regenerating Earth and the author of The Design Pathway for Regenerating Earth.
He will lead a series of conversations, workshops and presentations to weave, highlight and empower amazing place-based networks, innovations and on-the-ground work happening across watersheds in the Cascadia bioregion.
These activations will partner with local teams to organize community workshops, presentations, discuss problems in their areas, and reimagine shared frameworks of stewardship that better represent the places we call home.
A stepping stone into bioregional regeneration
The bioregional activation will bring community organizers, scientists, policy planners, system designers in a wide variety of fields and backgrounds, to come together and share lessons that are working, and explore creating a regional vision and plan together.
The idea of nestled communities is that we’re all a part of a larger system. Nature acts on the scale of watersheds, ecoregions and bioregions, so it’s really important that when we talk about [natural] disasters, whether it’s drought, flooding, earthquakes or wildfires, to have bioregional solutions for addressing these issues. And no state or province will ever be able to do that alone.
