Over the week of September 18-21, CitiesAlive will be hosting the 15th annual Green Roof & Wall Conference.CascadiaNow! is delighted to be attending this conference, and to take part in steps towards a more green and sustainable architecture within our region.
Cascadians south of the 55th and around the region celebrated a July 4th 'Inter-dependence' day, a beautiful opportunity to celebrate the wonderful things that make the Pacific Northwest so special!
British Columbia and Washington State look to create Cascadia Innovation Corridor to promote regional economic opportunities in tech industries, as well as to foster collaborative research projects and transportation lines.
In a statement released, the Cascadians Against Hate Coalition stated that it "does not promote, permit, or condone any behaviors or actions of a sexist, racist, derogatory, or discriminatory nature . . . Moreover, we outright condemn all hate groups, their actions and ideas, as they run contrary to the core Cascadian bioregional beliefs and tenets. These groups threaten to undermine the sacred relationship between biodiversity and nature, which is the crux of life."
In 2010, the Northwest region saw its first proposal for large-scale coal exports. Shortly after, a policy and research non-profit called Sightline started tracking the region's fossil fuel transportation. With the help of a wide span of communities, tribes and First Nations, environmental supporters, and many other organizations and individuals, nearly every proposed project by the coal, gas, and oil industries they opposed has been defeated.
Are you partaking in the annual Seattle-to-Portland ride July 15th-16th? Or simply hoping to sport some Cascadia gear riding your bike around the bioregion?
