Community Conversations: Being a Good Ancestor: Post-Petroleum Agriculture and the Just Transition with Winona LaDuke

At Bioneers we have an amazing community-discerning, engaged, committed, and reflective. These Community Conversations are an opportunity for us to come together around key topics to talk about what has real meaning and value to us. Stimulated by a brief “keynote,” or “conversation starter,” and captured by a creative “synthesis” from talented young spoken word artists, these community conversations offer a place to bring your best thinking forward in creative and innovative ways.  Join us, and weave your heart, mind, and voice into the collective braid!        

How can we be good ancestors for our future descendants? Winona LaDuke will kick off the session by sharing about her recent work supporting the Just Transition through post-petroleum agriculture (aka, the “New Green Revolution”), hemp in the materials economy, and building inter-tribal councils. This community conversation can take inspiration from her example and explore how we too can contribute to the just transition we are living right now, and what being a “good ancestor” means to us.    With: Winona LaDuke, internationally renowned activist working on issues of sustainable development, renewable energy and food systems, Executive Director at Honor the Earth; Amy Lenzo, weDialogue and the World Cafe Community Foundation; David Shaw, Santa Cruz Permaculture & UCSC Right Livelihood College; and “harvest” by spoken word artist Jahan Khalighi.
