*We invite you to join us in action this year...*
In this epic moment of radical environmental and social disruption, 
we’re experiencing the sunrise of an ecologically literate and socially 
just civilization. We are all called upon to take a stand, to be a 
leader, to step up in our lives, our work, our families, our 
communities, our world…working together, /turning vision into action/.

Like grass growing through pavement, Nature’s profound capacity for 
healing and regeneration cannot be denied, and we too can act as 
healers. The Bioneers vision is rooted in nature-inspired solutions and 
social justice for the world’s social, cultural and environmental 
challenges. For the most part, those solutions are already present and 
we know in which directions to head. It’s not that we need more 
solutions – what we need is to honor and rapidly spread and scale those 
solutions. The National Bioneers Conference celebrates and illuminates 
these diverse pathways.

/Get your heart beating in the right direction
That's when you make a real connection/
Robbie Robertson – Lyrics, 'When the Night Was Young'
If you’ve been to our conference, you know the indescribably joyous 
pulse that flows when our hearts are beating together in the right 
direction. Amazing connections occur. If you've not yet been, you'll 
surely want to experience what many participants call a life-changing 
join forces with our kaleidoscopic network of networks at the National 
Bioneers Conference, where innovators, change-makers and global citizens 
are /turning vision into action/.
