Earth's Fate

Do issues around climate change, social justice and threatened indigenous cultures keep you up at night, grinding your teeth, wondering what—if anything—can be done to remedy the current global crisis? Or are you so overwhelmed with bad news that you've found yourself face down on the floor when you could be out taking tiny baby steps toward a better world?

If you answer yes to either of these questions, the Bioneers Conference might be a good place to turn. Now in its 23rd year, the mega eco-social justice-sustainability forum rolls into the Marin Center Oct. 18–20.

This year's conference features keynote speaker activist and UNICEF ambassador Danny Glover, and offers an array of workshops, forums and films highlighting proactive approaches to addressing the world's complex issues. Events at the conference are jam-packed with information about youth leadership, gender awareness, community resilience, accessible healthcare, biomimicry, sustainable agriculture, progressive media, indigenous activism, medicinal herbs, education and more (whew!).

Founders Kenny Ausubel and Nina Simons spend each year planning the event, which has brought leaders like Jane Goodall, Michael Pollan and Gloria Steinem to the stage. Attending this year, in addition to Glover, are local and international figures such as John A. Powell, Matthew Fox, Mona Polacca, Joanna Macy, Lynne Twist, and OAEC's own Brock Dolman, among dozens of others.

Rounded out with a Saturday-night dance party, Bioneers provides a gateway into positive social change on Friday–Sunday, Oct. 18–20, at the Marin Center. 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael. 9am–6pm daily. $75–$475. Visit www.bioneers.org for tickets.
