Help Bioneers Make a Difference That Really Makes a Difference in 2018
For decades, the Bioneers team has amplified the voices of the world’s most ingenious changemakers. We’ve created programming that empowers an ever-expanding audience to step up and make the world a more equitable place for generations to come. Without the support of people like you, we know this wouldn’t have been possible.
As we march into 2018, we look forward to increasing our impact with you by our sides. As our co-founder Kenny Ausubel said at this year’s conference, “We’re taking a collective hero’s journey—a descent through the crucible of the underworld to transform human civilization and ourselves.”
Stops along our journey this year will include a major website overhaul and an increased focus on media production that will bring the Bioneers experience to you year-round. Already, we’re starting to get amazing traction from the media we produce, with video views this past year numbering in the millions. We recognize the importance of ramping up these efforts in concert with an even stronger 2018 conference that gathers global problem-solvers ready to turn ideas into action.
We’ll also strengthen our collaboration with essential partners such as Bren Smith and GreenWave, the Biomimicry Institute and the Rights of Nature Initiative, to put our mission into action for a better tomorrow.
2017 has been our most important, influential year yet, and we’re humbled by the recognition we’ve received. But we can’t stop now. Your thoughtful donations will help Bioneers reach new audiences, recruit more leaders, and bring you the type of inspiration and motivation you’ve come to expect from us for years.
Thank you for being our partners in change and growth.
Founders Nina Simons and Kenny Ausubel were thrilled and humbled this year when the Goi Peace Foundation awarded them the Goi Peace Award for their pioneering work at Bioneers. “Through the educational and community-building programs of Bioneers, your visionary leadership continues to inspire innovators from all walks of life to come together and co-create a more sustainable and harmonious future,” said the Foundation.
The Goi Peace Award was established in 2000 by the Goi Peace Foundation, which works to promote consciousness, values and wisdom to create a culture of peace. It is presented annually to highlight individuals and organizations in various fields that have made outstanding contributions toward the realization of a peaceful and harmonious world. Past winners include Bill Gates, scientist James Lovelock, Nigerian pro-democracy activist Hafsat Abiola-Costello, and Deepak Chopra.
