About the Whidbey Institute

The Whidbey Institute | A Home for the Common Good

Our mission is to empower, connect, and inspire individuals and organizations through programs that foster personal development, nurture community connections, and address social and environmental challenges.

We envision a thriving, engaged network of people empowered to create a vital, sustainable, and collaborative culture—one which recognizes and nurtures both the human community and the natural world as integral parts of a whole.

We convene and support people and communities acting on a wide range of interrelated environmental and social justice issues by providing experiences that connect, renew, and encourage. We work from our 100 acre Chinook campus on Whidbey Island as well as in Seattle and elsewhere around the bioregion, sustaining and amplifying our network’s collective efforts on behalf of the common good.
