Currently, we are in the middle of a social tipping point., in which people are collectively asking ourselves how we can make our world a more resilient, vibrant and positive place, and for a limited time, we have a window in which we can impact great change.
How would you like to see the Cascadia movement grow at this time? What work do we need to make Cascadia a reality?
Together, to address these questions, we are excited to announce a series of Zoom organizing calls for everyone who has ever been interested in Cascadia or believes in the idea & movement.
Each person can sign up for up to two Zoom calls that they might be most interested in. Dates / Times will be sent out as soon as they are confirmed. Even if you can’t make it at the specific time, feel free to sign up as part of a organizing group. Everyone who signs up will receive notes, meeting recaps and can work with each group sees fit.
Our guiding question for each participant and organizing group is “If 10,000 people joined the Cascadia movement in November, what infrastructure, resources, groups do you want to make happen that we need for a vibrant, decentralized and positive movement?”
