For over 25 years, the Bioneers Conference has been inspiring and activating thousands of change-makers and uniting a diverse range of ages to take part in a packed weekend of workshopping, critical thinking and intimately connecting with other leaders tackling the most pressing environmental and social challenges. NuMundo is extremely proud to be a featured partner of Bioneers this year offering eco-networking sessions at the Summit Tent.

This years Bioneers Conference is going to be especially amazing because of new activities like yoga, movement, a tent just for ecopreneurs, green investors and young movers and shakers, an Indigenous artisan market and LGBT Youth Talking Circle. Young people all around the US are coming together to join in on potent conversations, making deep, lasting, beneficial relationships and receiving unparalleled education and empowerment!

Through a weekend of radical art, music (including Liberation Movement!), networking, participation and deeply empowering speeches, the 2015 Bioneers Conference is NOT to be missed and here’s why:

  1. Summit TentNetwork in a dynamic new community-driven space created in partnership with the Resilience Collaborative. The Summit is focused on bringing together leaders in the investment, business and non-profit communities. The tent will serve as a meeting space where groups and coalitions can host conversations, round tables, and focus groups related to growing a resilient and just economy.


  2. Coastal Climate Change Strategies – A major highlight this year is a keynote talk by water expert Henk Ovink, who helps direct water management in the Netherlands, a nation that’s 60% below sea level. Henk became a key influence in New York City’s post-Super Storm Sandy response and he is now working to bring these models to California.


  3. Interactive Art – Get inspired by a brand new artisan vendor space showcasing a diverse mix of beautiful and creative goods for sale, including a special pop-up from the Indigenous Fine Art Market. Then express your own creativity via collaborative art installations and collective murals on the conference grounds.

  4. Leading from the Feminine – The Everywoman’s Leadership track at the conference is full of amazing programming this year! Don’t miss a power-packed panel of women leaders including Nikki Silvestri, Anneke Campbell, Noris Benet and Pat McCabe who will address their unique perspectives on bringing the “feminine” forward in leadership.
