Overview

Meet the Bioneers--visionary "biological pioneers" who use nature to heal nature. The Bioneers: Declarations of Interdependence, presents the fascinating and inspiring stories of 14 people at the cutting edge of solutions-based approaches to environmental restoration, whose work includes technological innovation, economic strategies, social justice, and a spiritual connection to the natural world. These scientific and social innovators are helping to define a coming Age of Biology founded in principles of kinship, interdependence, cooperation, and community. They share working models for restoration that can be replicated, refined, and spread around the world as vital keys to environmental and cultural renewal. Learn about John Todd, Monika Griefahn, Francisco X. AlarcĀ³n, Kat Harrison, Fred Kirschenmann, Jason Clay, Vandana Shiva, and many more.

The Bioneers are inspirational role models demonstrating that individuals can make a positive difference toward creating a sustainable future--on the ground, in communities, in corporate boardrooms, and in the corridors of government. As noted entrepreneur and author Paul Hawken (The Ecology of Commerce, Natural Capitalism) says, "The Bioneers are central to the re-imagination of what it means to be human."
