Bioneers 2011

About This Collection

Founder Kenny Ausubel coined the word bioneers in 1990 to describe an emerging culture of social and scientific innovators who are mimicking nature¹s operating instructions to serve human ends while enriching the web of life. We take a "solve-the-whole-problem" approach: Taking care of nature means taking care of people - and taking care of people means taking care of nature. It's part of our mission.

At the 2011 Conference the Sustainability Action Media (SAM) principals Barry Heidt and Ruth Ann Barrett took the opportunity to interview mostly, but not exclusively, the indigenous leaders attending Bioneers. 

2012 Conference

Now in its 23rd year, the Bioneers Conference (c. 3,000 people annually) has served as a perennial wellspring of cutting-edge content and dynamic, diverse voices that supply the primary source for our public education and media outreach. The main conference and Beaming Bioneers local community conferences further serve as a focal point to build community, connection and collaboration.

Aloha as a Way of LIfe by Auntie Puanani Mahoe at Bioneers 2011

Auntie Puanani Mahoe talks about Aloha, more than just a word, but a way of life, a teaching, and a birthright for all living beings.  It's about love. The "ah" is the first light of dawn.  Barry Heidt interviewed here at the Bioneers 2011 Conference in San Rafael, California. Editing was done by Tom Hopkins of Sustainable Today.
