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.

In each location, we did our best to record a high-quality recording and live stream of Joe’s presentation and the Q&A sessions. The live streams are on our YouTube channel, but we will be working to upload high-quality recordings as we can.
From October 1-30th, we traveled around Cascadia working to activate watershed core teams. Our presentations are one hour long and have an intentional arc, starting with the seriousness of the problem, establishing why working in bioregional frameworks is the only realistic pathway forward, and then laying out our vision for Regenerate Cascadia, a tapestry of projects working in every watershed, ecoregion and bioregion for the regeneration of our planet.
Where possible we livestreamed these events, and when time permits, will be working to upgrade the quality of these video’s to using the recorded audio and video.
