Cascadia Department of Bioregion

An Interconnected World of Bioregional Movements

The Cascadia Department of Bioregion researches, promotes and disseminates information about bioregionalism, a grassroots approach to ecology that emphasizes sustainability, community self-determination and regional self-reliance.

Through its projects, publications, speakers, and workshops, the Cascadia Department of Bioregion networks and starts bioregional groups to encourage local organizations and individuals to find sustainable ways to live within the natural confines of bioregions.

We believe the people living in a place are the best suited to restore and maintain that area. We build greater understandings of our bioregion, promote place appropriate technologies and policies, provide direct funding for community projects, educate about bioregionalism, and support the creation of centers to determine the carrying capacities and regenerative frameworks for each watershed and bioregion we live in.
