Gabriel Scheer - Founder, Seattle GreendrinksThe Whidbey Institute is proud to be hosting the 2nd Annual Whidbey Island Beaming Bioneers Conference October 14 - 16 - We hope that you will join us for an inspirational and transformative weekend filled with energizing speakers and workshops, delicious local food, community building and networking.
The Bioneers are a group of solutions-based social and scientific innovators who “inspire a shift to live on Earth in ways that honor the web of life, each other and future generations.” Each fall, the national Bioneers Conference in San Rafael, California brings together leading innovators to speak and present their unique stories and solutions. The plenary lectures from the National Conference are “beamed” to more than 20 local sites around the country.
This year’s exciting lineup of beamed speakers includes Gloria Steinem, Paul Stamets, Amory Lovins, and Philippe Cousteau.
In addition to beaming the national plenary speakers live to Whidbey Island, the 2011 Whidbey Island Beaming Bioneers Conference will feature a local keynote address by renowned photographer Chris Jordan, a variety of hands-on workshops on topics of interest and relevance to inhabitants of the Pacific Northwest, delicious meals, and ample time for community-building and personal reflection. The local workshop lineup so far:Sarah Keenan / Theo Simms - Intergenerational collaboration and mentoring with Generation Waking up
