    We are planning an open space event for Saturday February 16th 10:00am-4:00pm on the topic of Bioregional Learning and Education. Opening up a discussion thread to direct conversations that will pop up and practice using this platform.

    Great Quinn! This is a good target then for getting the asset mapping toolkit up and running. Does Clare in Eugene have a login?!

    For the people involved in the discussion on the open space after the group formation meeting on Dec 28th, here’s a quick update from a meeting I just had with Jon Ramer.

    The network he’s involved with, One World, is in part an impact hub where social innovators can propose a mission to be accepted and supported in various ways. In the regenerate Cascadia meeting we talked about having only people from Cascadia host sessions unless otherwise invited, and that the Bioregional Education page can be a place for folks to land their forward momentum after the sessions. A question arising now is how can we synergize the opportunity for forward momentum to be directed to both the RC website and the one world mighty network?

    This is a great query, perhaps Jon could on-board here, and describe what specific outcomes would create value for his endeavors (info-share).

    One simple strategy would be to center the participants and an understanding of their needs over either OneWorld or RegenCascadia.

    Naming can be useful. I wonder if this is a “Bioregional Education Symposium” and we could have an invitational question, like “what forms of education are necessary for us to regenerate the bioregion?” As part of defining this broad amoeba of BioRegEd??

    A “symposium” has a long historical, and current professional development vibe. But using open space becomes submersed as the method and more the hook then the bait, a surprise, rather than the center of the event name. “Open Space“ also has meaning in the “planning“ professional world as any land that is not dominated by human development which could be confusing :-). This we are playing de-centralizing games and reclaiming symposium, while maximizing legibility.
