GLIN==> Fourth Great Lakes Bioneers Conference

Announcing the Fourth Annual
Great Lakes Bioneers Conference, October 14-16, 2005

There is a new superpower: global popular movements. Since 1990, the annual Bioneers conference in California has been the pre-eminent and largest gathering of leading social and scientific visionaries with practical solutions for restoring the Earth. These biological pioneers – or bioneers – represent a wide array of fields ranging from botany to industrial ecology, organic farming to integrative medicine, activism to the arts. “Although we face unprecedented environmental problems,” said Bioneers founder Kenny Ausubel, “Nature already holds many solutions and this conference spotlights the creative strategies that help us realize these solutions by restoring community, justice and democracy.”

For the fourth time, Bioneers is hosting satellite conference sites to double the access to the speakers, information, and networking. Traverse City and Detroit, Michigan each have the honor of being one of 17 selected sites! The Great Lakes Bioneers Conference Traverse City is organized by the Neahtawanta Center, SEEDS and local educators, and is hosted on the campus of Northwestern Michigan College on October 14-16. A live satellite downlink of the headlining speakers from the Bioneers Conference in San Rafael, CA will be part of this unique regional event. Workshops and other local events will focus on the people and issues integral to our own Great Lakes region, including music, food and farming, renewable energy, and water.

Meet us at the cross roads of ecology and social justice! “No conference on Earth celebrates more fully the possibilities of creating a world that is conducive to life,” said Paul Hawken, author of Natural Capitalism. “Bioneers is central to the re-imagination of what it means to be human.”

CEU's for teachers available!
