  • New cross collaborative partnerships and resourcing model evolving community resilience and regional collaboration.
  • Cultivation of collaborative leaders across local urban centers in the lower California central coast bioregion.
  • Cultivating and connecting leaders from all parts of the central coast, building their capacity to create new ways of working with resources and each other
  • Creating spaces for non dual, whole systems thinking, inclusive, regional, building on all of the work efforts like this in the past for action now.
  • Creating a supportive community of practice and learning for what a bioregional cooperative initiative can become with input and shared outcomes from inside and outside the region.

“Imagine a world safe from pollution, a world in which the long term interests of mankind and our planet temper the short term interests of business and industry; where conscious cooperation coexists symbiotically alongside healthy competition; where the proper raising and teaching of our children and the caring for our elders is valued and compensated for in equal measure to other forms of employment so vital to our society. Imagine a world in which there is meaningful work for every human being, together with adequate time for our families, communities and personal pursuits; a world that encourages individual growth as it does economic growth; community as it does productivity; conservation as it does consumption. A world that nurtures our spirits and our souls in equal measure to our material needs; a world that fully honors the diversity of all life and the life-affirming aspects of what it is to be fully human in its many myriad shapes and forms. In essence, imagine a world in balance.”
