North Sound Voices

North Sound Voices brings experiences, ideas, and solutions from across the North Sound region to you. We believe in the wisdom of our region. We believe that our communities know what they need – and are demonstrating resilience every day. We believe we are stronger together. When we listen to and learn from each other, we can do more than we ever could alone.

We honor the oral traditions and storytelling of our region, by producing this multimedia project to highlight the work and the people in our region. North Sound Voices is a podcast, as well as videos, where you will learn from peer and lived experiences, feel connected to the region and the Network, and be inspired!


Season one is all about the Vital Conditions for Health and Well-Being. Listeners will learn about the Vital Conditions framework from national, regional, and local leaders working to expand access to the Vital Conditions we all need to thrive. Episodes will highlight the interdependence of the Vital Conditions, and how multi-solving strategies can increase our collective impact.

In January 2023, we asked our partners to share their perspectives on belonging, their equity journey, our shared work in the newly emerged Collaborative Action Network, and what does practicing equity and belonging look like.
