Leading regional thinking to ACTION in Northern California.


Redwood Coast Rural Action is a regional approach to addressing the economy, the environment and social equity. 

On May 11, 2012 the California Stewardship Network, an alliance of regional partnerships promoting economic vitality (www.castewardship.org) and California Forward, a bipartisan governance reform effort engaging regional leaders to improve performance and democracy (www.cafwd.org) hosted the first California Economic Summit, Can-Do California:  Thriving Regions Lead to a Thriving State.

Regional forums, conducted throughout the state in advance of the Summit, identified economic opportunities and priorities for regional and state action. Del Norte County held its forum on February 10, the Redwood Coast Regional Summit was held on March 22 and the Shasta-Cascades meeting was held in Siskiyou County on April 6.
