North Sound Community Action Network

About the Glossary

As a learning resource, the North Sound Collaborative Action Network library provides a place for both local knowledge and stories, as well as scholarly writings and models from around the world. It is a living library, being added to by you, adapting to the needs of our community as our world changes. This glossary includes words, concepts, and ideas frequently used in the Network and from our collaborators. We know that language matters, and some words can have different meanings, and even perspectives. This glossary is meant to guide all of us in using terminology with a shared definition and understanding, helping to foster trust and transparent partnerships. If you have a word to add to the glossary, please contact us at
