We wish you the beginning of a Summer filled with family, friends, and the pursuit of joys, passions and convictions. As fellow bioneers, we're sure you know that we will spend the next three months preparing to meet you at our annual conference in San Rafael, CA this October. As always, there's a lot to prepare for! Many of you will be pleased to know that you'll have many more facilitated and self-organized networking opportunities this year. Your feedback has been important to us and it's our pleasure to fulfill this request.
Would you consider providing us some additional feedback for organizing this year's conference? Simply put, we'd love for you to let us know if you intend to join us in San Rafael this year. Our Conference Team wants to arrange for the best networking and programming experience possible. If you will take a moment to RSVP as to whether or not you will be joining us in October it will help us with scheduling new features this year.
We encourage those of you whoare planning to attend to register early so you don't miss any special conference communications and offers. (And of course to avoid the late registration fee.) One thing to look forward to is our Q&As with National Bioneers Conference Keynote Speakers. That's just an example of what registrants can expect over the coming weeks. Stay tuned…
In this epic moment of radical environmental and social disruption, we’re experiencing the sunrise of an ecologically literate and socially just civilization. We are all called upon to take a stand, to be a leader, to step up in our lives, our work, our families, our communities, our world…working together, turning vision into action.
Like grass growing through pavement, Nature’s profound capacity for healing and regeneration cannot be denied, and we too can act as healers. The Bioneers vision is rooted in nature-inspired solutions and social justice for the world’s social, cultural and environmental challenges. For the most part, those solutions are already present and we know in which directions to head. It’s not that we need more solutions – what we need is to honor and rapidly spread and scale those solutions. The National Bioneers Conference celebrates and illuminates these diverse pathways.
