We held this conference in November, 2014—below, see our original event listing.
The Whidbey Island Bioneers Conference—a Bioneers Resilient Communities Event—takes place November 7th to 9th on Whidbey Island, one hour north of Seattle. Our fifth annual conference is shaping up to be an incredible experience!
Bioneers is founded upon one essential truth: “Life creates the conditions for life”. As artists, activists, innovators, and entrepreneurs, we work across many lines of difference to catalyze and cultivate revolution from the heart of nature.
The bioneers are engaged citizens from all backgrounds and fields who focus on solving our world’s most urgent problems within a framework of interdependence: It’s all connected. Just as the web of life is intricately interconnected, so too are all environmental and social issues. We take a “solve-the-whole-problem” approach that is holistic, systemic and multidisciplinary.
This year’s speakers include Bioneers Founder and CEO, Kenny Ausubel; Native poet and activist, Lyla June Johnston; Seattle hip hop artist, Prometheus Brown; and the former Mayor of Seattle, Mike McGinn – just to name a few.
Join us for three days of inspiring workshops, plenaries, and community activities all at the beautiful Whidbey Institute in the middle of 100 acres of pristine forests. REGISTER NOW!
This conference is family-friendly, featuring a kids program, youth discount, and need-based scholarships for young and low-income leaders.
Join us is Seattle on Monday, October 27th for a FREE introductory event at Impact Hub Seattle. Also, consider joining us for dinner and a Special Evening with Kenny just prior to the conference on Thursday, November 6th at the Whidbey Institute. Both events support our Rising Leaders Scholarship Fund for emerging leaders.
And stick around on Sunday afternoon, November 9th, for a special panel discussion: “Living the New Story: A New Cosmology, Community, and Commitment“ – honoring Thomas Berry’s 100th Birthday.
Thanks and we hope to have you with us!
