Bioneers 2021 Conference - Between Worlds: Emergence In An Emergency Bioneers 2021 Conference - Between Worlds: Emergence In An Emergency

In this time, we’re all called upon to be leaders. Please join with us at the Bioneers 2021 virtual conference to experience how some of the wisest among us are bridging the space between worlds.

Bioneers 2021 will make the connections from ancient wisdom of forests to the visionary struggles of Amazonian First Peoples to protect the rainforest – from the wisdom of trauma for healing to Ecological Medicine and health equity – from the genius of the biophilic design revolution to designing nature-based infrastructures  – from the Green New Deal to regenerative agriculture and the power of soil to sequester carbon – from multicultural healing, eco-feminism and a culture of pluralism to the dismantling of corporate power. In interactive sessions in smaller groups, you can also connect with other inspired Bioneers around some of the topics you most care about.
