 Environmental Concerns

The goals of the Environmental Concerns Area are:

  • to promote a bioregion that is environmentally sound and is sustainable, meeting the basic needs of all living things, in accordance with humane principles;
  • to provide an opportunity for groups expressing concern for the rights of all living systems (including groups addressing international environmental and agricultural problems) to present ideas and information;
  • to provide a forum for scheduled presentations for these groups; and
  • to accommodate activities, including those for profit, that are compatible with the area.
