Annual Bioneers Conference: Catalyzing a Resilient Network



This month, Bioneers will be hosting its 23rd Annual National Bioneers Conference in San Rafael, CA. Featured on Thursday, October 18th will be a pre-conference workshop called "Catalyzing a Resilient Network."

From the workshop homepage:

In the face of the Great Disruption, the key is building resilience, both ecological and social, while making the successful transformation to a sustainable civilization. 
This landmark gathering will feature leading models, strategies and tools for building resilience at the community, local and regional levels, highlighting the opportunity for a Resilient Communities Network nationally and globally.
We’ll present an initial systems mapping “sketch” of Resilient Communities drawn from the “mental models” of diverse thought leaders and doers in the field, designed and synthesized by Scott Spann of Innate Strategies. Collaboratory discussion circles will invite group dialogue. Participants will locate themselves in relevant action-domain nodes on the map and connect with others in that domain. A structured networking lunch will offer further opportunity for focused connection. 

The event will be co-sponsored by The Thriving Resilient Communities Collaboratory and Threshold Foundation.

The workshop will be held from 9:00am-6:00pm in the San Rafael Embassy Suites. You can register to attend on the workshop homepage.
