Bioneers Conference Opens Application for Press Passes

San Francisco, CA – 06/13/2017

Bioneers, an educational nonprofit organization that highlights breakthrough solutions for restoring the planet, has announced that applications for press passes to its annual conference are now open. The Bioneers Conference is a source of many inspiring stories and offers a unique opportunity to connect with speakers and presenters who are working on projects and ideas to fix some of the world’s most pressing issues.

Keynote speakers at the 2017 Bioneers Conference include Host and Executive Director of Democracy Now!, journalist Amy Goodman, The Safina Center President Carl Safina, science fiction writer and leading open Internet activist Cory Doctorow, Co-Director of ROC-United Saru Jayaraman, Indigenous Environmental Network’s Lead Organizer Kandi Mossett, and many more.

“Back in 2007, Leonardo DiCaprio did his first climate change documentary and almost every single one of the experts in the film – 72 of them – were sourced from Bioneers. Needles to say, without their incredible expertise at finding the best, most humble, biggest changemakers on the planet we would not have found all those folks.” Justin Winters – Executive Director, Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation
