GLBD vision statement as expressed in the
Earth Charter Preamble:
"In the midst of a magnificent diversity of cultures and life forms, we are one human family and one Earth community with a common destiny. We must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace.”
Bioneers (biological pioneers) is an annual conference, a movement and a
way of life! National BIONEERS is in its 28th year and Great Lakes Bioneers
Detroit in its 13th year! We are grateful for the ongoing growth of our
relationships as Bioneers, inspired by your commitment and deeply appreciate
the support of all who make this conference possible. Each year we welcome you to a
weekend together celebrating and affirming the transformative work of so
many in Detroit and SE Michigan.
When people come together as a learning community that contributes to
discover new sustainable ways of being and share transformative ideas for the
sake of the Commons, everyone benefits. Sharing your values, vision and actions
to the new story can indeed change our future. The Thirteenth Annual Great Lakes Bioneers Detroit Conference will be a
Bioneers Resilient Communities Network Event in which you can connect with engaged individuals making a real difference.
The Bioneers Conference is a leading-edge event where you can see tomorrow today: a future environment of hope. Social and scientific innovators focus on breakthrough solutions inspired by nature and human ingenuity. These visionaries are already creating the healthy, diverse, equitable and beautiful world we want to live in—our legacy for future generations and the web of life on which our lives depend.
We share recordings of these inspired speakers from the national Bioneers Conference.
