Join us at Bioneers by the Bay!

The 8th Annual Connecting for Change: A Bioneers by the Bay Conference presented by the Marion Institute is an annual three-day, solutions based gathering that brings together a diverse audience to create deep and positive change in their communities. This internationally acclaimed event summons environmental, industry and social justice innovators to bring focus on food and farming, health and healing, green business, indigenous knowledge, environmental and social justice, women and youth empowerment, spirituality and sustainability, all working to catalyze a movement to heal our world.

In 2011, over 2,500 people gathered in New Bedford and were privileged to hear from stellar keynote speakers including Satish Kumar, Amy Goodman, John Francis and Jodie Evans. In all, over 100 presenters and 50 workshops and tours ignited the conscience of the attendees. This year we will roll up our sleeves and harvest tangible, practical solutions to the specific challenges we face here in the Northeast and the world at-large.

Bioneers and the Marion Institute are planning a remarkable three days of live keynote presentations, afternoon workshops, a inclusive family program, an extensive Youth Initiative program, a downlink of the 22nd Annual Bioneers Conference in California, an exhibition hall featuring sustainable businesses and organizations, a community action center, films, music, art installations, a farmers’ market and local & organic food.

Chelsea Green is a long time sponsor of Bioneers, and several of our authors will be speaking at Bioneers by the Bay this year. If you’re in the Boston area, please join us! For details on getting to the conference, visit the Connecting for Change website, here.
