The International Living Future Institute invites you to take part in a deep dive into resilient integrated water solutions.

Participants will hear about innovative ideas and successful programs, policies, projects, and initiatives from leaders in Cascadia and beyond. Informative and creatively facilitated discussions will focus on developing action plans for local, bioregional and federal advocacy to achieve policy impact and tangible change in Cascadia and beyond.
