Bioneers is an innovative nonprofit educational organization that highlights breakthrough solutions for restoring people and planet.
Founded in 1990 in Santa Fe, New Mexico by social entrepreneurs Kenny Ausubel and Nina Simons, Bioneers advances the great transformation underway in human civilization by serving as a seed head for game-changing social and scientific vision, knowledge and practices that honor the genius of nature and human ingenuity.
We do so through our annual National Bioneers Conference, award-winning media, local conferences and community resilience networks, and leadership training programs focused on youth, women and Indigenous peoples.
