Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote 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 community.
  • Being an oasis of hope that sparks mass creativity and engagement.

Description

Bioneers is a 'Revolution from the heart of Nature". Founded in 1990 by Kenny Ausubel and Nina Simons, Bioneers promotes practical environmental solutions and innovative social strategies for restoring Earth's imperiled ecosystems and healing our human communities.
