What is Bioregionalism?
Advocates of bioregionalism assert that human activity should be largely constrained by ecological or geographical boundaries rather than political ones. 
The core principles of bioregionalism include the following notions:
- Shifting focus away from colonial and national borders towards recognition of Indigenous biocultural landscapes and increasing autonomy on a political, social, cultural and economic level.
- An economy that supports local livelihoods and enterprises that fit into a global supply chain in a manner that is responsible, ethical and sustainable.
- Building community resilience and empowerment within a bioregion, based on participatory approaches.
- Dynamic and open systems of governance that seek to decentralise power structures and enhance transparency and accountability.
- Environmental sustainability and approaches that support regenerative ecosystems, cultures and economies.
- Enhancing the health and wellbeing of the bioregion and its communities.
- Respect for Indigenous sovereignty and ways of living.
