Educators, who, in our eyes, have the world’s most noble and under-appreciated calling, are probably the most well represented profession among Bioneers attendees. Come share your thoughts about how best to equip tomorrow’s citizens and leaders with the tools they will need to radically re-shape our civilization. Facilitated by Yeshe Salz, Bay Area Climate Adaptation Network (BayCAN).

What would a queer ecological future feel like, sound like, taste like? Join us for a prideful celebration as we step into that future together. Through an evening of visionary music, art, performance, and community conversation, we will celebrate the biological exuberance of this queer earth, honor the legacies of survival and resilience of our LGBTQ history, explore the impact of climate change on our communities, and dream-up together how we build that queer ecological future where all beings survive and thrive. There will be music, art and refreshments. This will be a safer space for LGBTQ+ members of our Bioneers community to meet and celebrate our identities and our diverse and symbiotic work for justice and sustainability. Allies are welcome. Facilitated by Vanessa Raditz, Orion Camero, Kyle Lemle.
