First Cascadia Illahee Diplomat Training a Great Success

Our first Cascadia diplomat training hosted eight wonderful Cascadians for a full day of learning about Cascadia, bioregionalism and brainstorming projects that diplomats would like to undertake. Diplomats are long term movement volunteers who undertake Cascadia projects that grow the Cascadia movement, get us closer to the idea being a reality, educate and grow awareness of bioregionalism, or grow connections for a more vibrant and healthy bioregion. Each diplomat was asked to think about a project beforehand that they would like to undertake as part of this program.
