Watch Bioneers Speakers This Weekend

Bioneers Logo
Bioneers is a unique annual conference that brings some of the best minds in the environmental and sustainability movement together every year.  It takes place in California, so we don't expect everyone here in Chicago to make the trip!  However, the organizers do their best to let people all over the world take advantage of the excellent presentations at the conference.  We just got an email from Bioneers telling us about a few of the keynote presentations that will be available for viewing online live as they happen:
We know that not everyone could make it out to San Rafael or to one of our 19 Beaming Bioneers sites, so we've decided to do something unprecedented this year and bring part of the conference to you.

For the first time ever, we will be offering a live webcast for free of two of our keynote speakers on each day of the conference, this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. 

On Friday:
·      Sarah James will report from the Arctic on climate change and its impact on indigenous people.
·      Michael Pollan will speak on reforming our broken industrial food system and what it means to for our health.
This webcast will begin Friday, starting at 11:30 AM PST.

On Saturday:
·      Jason McLennan will talk about living buildings and the future of architecture.
·      Lily Yeh will recount her experiences with the Rwanda Healing Project. 
This webcast will begin this Saturday, starting at 9:00 AM PST.

On Sunday:
·      Jerome Ringo will address the reality of green jobs in our re-made economy.
·      Annie Leonard will help us find our way beyond the Age of Stuff.
 This webcast will begin this Sunday, starting at 11:30 AM PST.

In addition, on both Friday and Saturday at 4:30 PM PST, we will be webcasting a panel and workshop on sustainable social media, in partnership with InfluenceXchange.
