About the event
Cascadia Bioregional Summit, happening November 3rd thru 12th, using this website and zoom.
The first weekend is a “Festival of What Works”. An opportunity for everyone throughout the Cascadia bioregion, or our bioregional community to share a lesson or work that they are doing they feel is important for other people to know or emulate.
During the following week in the evening time, we will be sharing “Watershed Reportbacks”. Reports from each organizing team, followed by a gathering of the whole on Friday.
The final weekend will be a Cascadia UnConference, an open space gathering where people interested in growing the idea of Regenerate Cascadia can come together around themed topics they find important.
About the event
An Open Space Format
This will be an emergent event using an online, open-space format in which community organizers will set the topics, discussions, presentations, and themes we will explore this weekend. The Bioregional Summit is modeled on the online global summit hosted by the Regenerate Communities Network in November of 2022.
Ultimately, the purpose of the Bioregional Summit will be to convene the creation of a bioregional blueprint for regenerating the Cascadia bioregion, designed through a grassroots process started in the activation team and that collects the knowledge and feedback from the participants.
The goal of this document will be the start of watershed councils, regular bioregional congresses, informational commons, and a governance body able to transparently administer a Cascadia impact fund. REGISTER FOR A TICKET
We are hosting this event on a “gift economy” basis. With an estimated 500-1000 participants, using Zoom and Qiqo Chat, we pay 2 cents per minute per viewer. Any contribution you wish to make will be most gratefully received.
Via Zoom and In Person
If you are doing work that you think is valuable and want to connect with others, join us for our Bioregional Summit in person and online from November 3-12. This is an open-space format event, and we will focus on documenting the participants and community leaders making this event happen and sharing it with everyone afterward.
This will feature presentations, workshops, and field trips facilitated by local on-the-ground teams in person, and bioregionwide on zoom.
