ABOUT GLBD

GREAT LAKES BIONEERS DETROIT (GLBD)

GLBD is a part of the Bioneers Resilient Communities Network. Founded in 1990, Bioneers seeks to highlight innovative approaches to environmental and social challenges. The organization believes that building connections between people who share a commitment to solving these issues can transform communities.

GLBD builds on that belief, focusing our energies and resources on the City of Detroit and Southeast Michigan. We believe in celebrating and understanding the connections we all have to each other, our environment, and social justice. Our mission, therefore, is to promote a sustainable community that fosters life-giving relationships, nurtures connections, and celebrates solutions for restoring and healing Earth's communities.

We do this through a variety of strategies including:

  • Educating the community on innovative solutions.
  • Offering a systemic framework, i.e. a way of "connecting the dots" that is holistic, systemic, and multi-disciplinary.
  • Linking individuals and networks in order to foster connection, cross-pollination, and collaboration of people and ideas, all focused on positive change.
  • Advocating for opportunities to restore our damaged and depleted earth and human communities.
  • Being an oasis of hope that sparks mass creativity and engagement.
