Navigating Our Future

Discovering the path to a thriving future in the Salish Sea Bioregion

Welcome to Navigating Our Future, a podcast and community forum series about cultivating thriving communities and nurturing a healthier world for all.


We’ll dive into the challenges that we face as a society — and their devastating effect on life, if not addressed now. Through our podcast, you will meet leading experts – visionaries, scientists, social entrepreneurs, storytellers, activists, and educators – engaged in this transformational work and who will inform and inspire you.  They will address challenges around our worldview, food security, health and wellness, inter-related climate crises, economy, environment and democracy and more as well as our paths to solutions to these challenges.
Although everyone is invited to our conversations, we’ll be focusing primarily on the Salish Sea Bioregion. Around nine million people live in this region, an intricate network of inland marine waterways, which encompasses the greater Vancouver-Seattle area. With a shared passion for our region, we hope to work together to chart a path to a thriving future for all life, beginning at the grassroots level.
We hope you find these conversations informative and inspiring. We also hope that they encourage you to share your voice, passion and gifts toward making the Salish Sea Bioregion a vital, resilient, regenerative and flourishing place for all of life — now and into the future. We are grateful you are here, and welcome you on this journey into the future.

With appreciation,

The Navigating Our Future Team
