About the Circle of Collaborators

Here in Northern California, we are blessed with an abundance of community groups working to realize the sustainable future we need. Our vision is to create a regional hub for Solutionaries in Northern California - our Circle of Collaborators - community activists, businesses and grassroots organizations who are turning despair into action through people-powered, nature-inspired, and community-based solutions.   

The Network envisions our Northern California landscape of social and environmental justice as a regenerative ecosystem, wherein each organization fills a unique niche that collectively generates a new system as the old one breaks down.

From time banks to community gardens, aquaponics businesses to emergency preparedness efforts, this regional hub will supports collaboration between groups, honors the work of organizations large and small, and offer strategies for collective impact and builds collaboration for a more resilient and just world. 

Together we can:

  • Help to build capacity and support for grassroots groups and projects
  • Showcase models of community resilience; and
  • build solidarity and stronger connections within the movement for grassroots climate justice solutions

Our Circle of Collaborators launched in April 2017 with a group of 55 organizations. We are learning and listening, and relaunching this structure as a bottoms-up flat governing membership for groups to loosely affiliate with each other.
