Become an Ambassador.
Just as Cascadia is a diverse group of individuals with common interests, ambassadors and chapters create a vibrant network of localized groups that raise awareness of Cascadia, build partnerships, host projects and empower every person to be active about issues they care about.
CascadiaNow! Ambassadors raise awareness and educate about Cascadia & bioregionalism, shift our impacts locally, and build connections with local businesses, organizations and groups. Ambassadors give presentations, table, create art campaigns, and connect regional campaigns and projects into their community at a local level, while simultaneously hooking in with our CN! ambassador and chapter network.

Ways to get active as a Cascadian Ambassador
Host a Cascadia Project, workgroup, or club
Any person, volunteer or member can start a Cascadia related project that they are passionate about! From ideas like a Cascadia National Football Team, Poetry Festivals, a Open Source GIS Workgroup, or Democratic Cooperatives, a Magazine, or Wikimedia Users Group; to informal clubs like Cascadia Hiking Groups, Book Reading Groups on Bioregionalism or Chinook Wawa, every person can create a Cascadia project. CascadiaNow! will help you flush out a leadership team, provide space in our newsletters, blog, calendar and social media, will work with you to build a timeline and budget, and provides a non-profit umbrella for receiving grants and fundraising when your club or group is ready.
Form a local Cascadianow! Chapter
Chapters are placed based hubs that undertake and host CascadiaNow! programming at a local level, and for all intents and purposes are administrative bodies that can host their own outreach, trainings, projects, resource creation, and adopt their own fiscally sponsored projects and fundraising.

Hook into our Regional Ambassador and Chapter Network
Ambassadors and Chapter organizers work together to create a bioregional framework of individuals, projects and groups, build resources, and coordinate around regional and local campaigns. It is our goal to host regular Ambassador Leadership summits, including our annual Cascadia Convergence each year.
