Groundswell 2014

Please note our new date and location:
December 5, 2014 | 7:00pm-10:00pm
The Bullitt Center | 1501 E Madison St., Seattle, WA

Groundswell is our night to recognize Cascadia’s boldest green building leaders, dreamers, provocateurs and innovators. Join us for Groundswell at the Bullitt Center on December 5th as we recognize our bioregion’s fellow change-makers and celebrate another year of progress towards a Living Future.



At Groundswell, we'll intersperse awards with lively entertainment and ample opportunity to mingle with friends and make new connections. 


Every year, dedicated volunteers imagine, organize, and execute innovative lectures, tours, workshops and educational events that further advance Cascadia’s mission to achieve a living future that is socially just, culturally rich and ecologically restorative. We will be celebrating the passion and impact of these green building pioneers!


Cascadia Fellows

The Cascadia Fellowship is awarded annually to individuals who have made significant contributions to the green building movement either regionally or nationally, and are recognized leaders within the greater green design community. The Fellows embody Cascadia’s conviction that individuals and organizations can lead a transformation of the built environment by acting as a lever and a catalyst for change. We'll announce our 2014 Cascadia Fellows at Groundswell. 

Outstanding Volunteer Leaders

Cascadia Leaders are individuals whose service to their local green building communities has substantively advanced the movement throughout the region.  At Groundswell we will honor all Leadership Award nominees as well as this year's winners.
