For the first time ever, Bioneers is coming to Chicago in 2012!
What is Bioneers? Bioneers is inspiring a shift to live on Earth in ways that honor the web of life, each other and future generations.
We believe that viable solutions already exist for most of our environmental and social crises. The solutions in nature consistently surpass our concept of what is possible. Where we don’t know what to do, we have a good idea what directions to head in. Once people discover these realities, it dramatically leverages pressure for change.
Eco-Justice Collaborative invites you to a planning retreat to help us envision Chicago’s future in a manner that embraces sustainability, green technology and social justice.
Saturday, November 12, 2011
Noon to 5:00 pm
1645 W. Jarvis, Chicago 60626
We’ll begin at noon and end at 5 pm, incorporating time for building relationships as well as getting some of the work done w/respect to creating a timeline and organizing the work ahead.

Our Chicago vision for Bioneers is expressed in the preamble of the Earth Charter: ” … in the midst of a magnificent diversity of cultures and life forms, we are one human family and one Earth community with a common destiny. We believe we must join together to bring forth a sustainable global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace.”
Eco-Justice Collaborative is a founding member of Chicago Bioneers. If you can’t come to this retreat but are interested in getting involved, click here and we’ll get back to you right away!
