Transformation –  Regeneration – Celebration

As Bioneers rolls into the 34th annual gathering, the big wheels of massive change are turning and the Ecology Center has joined forces as a Co-Sponsor!

For over three decades, the Bioneers Conference has served as a trellis on which this visionary movement of movements has grown and grown together around authentic “solve-the-whole problem” solutions.

This year the Bioneers Conference will be held in Berkeley, California, on April 6-8, 2023. Featuring hundreds of inspiring and visionary leaders, Bioneers 2023 will host thousands of engaged and civically active attendees at Zellerbach Hall on the UC Berkeley Campus and in venues across downtown Berkeley for three days of riveting talks, movement building, and connections.

Ecology Center Members receive a 20% discount to the Bioneers Conference at the time of registration. Now is the perfect time to renew or join!

Never has it been more vital that we come together around the council fire to share what we’ve learned, link arms, fill our hearts and vision, and align ourselves to prevail for the long haul.

Come to this panel discussion to learn about how the oil industry is growing their market for plastics and the solutions that can counter that spread and its correlating plastic pollution.
