A World of Bioregional Movements
We grow the Cascadia movement. The Cascadia Department of Bioregion is a 501(c)3 program building a network of place based hubs throughout the Cascadia bioregion. It is our goal to develop watershed and bioregional based frameworks that can provide a viable and positive alternatives to existing power structures. To accomplish these goals, we believe in bioregionalism, a grassroots approach to ecology that uses natural boundaries to reinforce sustainability, community self-determination and regional self-reliance.
We build place based watershed hubs that grow greater understanding of bioregions, promote place appropriate technology and policy, provide direct funding for community projects, and support the creation of movements to determine the carrying capacities and regenerative frameworks for each watershed and bioregion we live in. We believe the people living in a place are the best suited to take the lead on issues affecting their area.
Regardless of where you are from, we want reconnect people into place in a healthy and sustainable manner, stand in solidarity to address past wrongs, and work to better protect all inhabitants living here.
This is Cascadia and we are Cascadian. We hope you join us.
Your Chinook Word of the Day
Chinook Jargon (also known as Chinuk Wawa, or Chinook Wawa) was the true lingua francais of the Cascadia bioregion for several hundred years. At its height, it had more than 100,000 speakers in the late 19th century, before becoming almost extinct in the 20th century. It is now a language being revived.
