Case #97
Title: Bioneers share Environmental solutions
Summary: Since 1990, Bioneers - or Biological Pioneers - have been coming together annually in San Rafael, California, to share ideas about restorative solutions to environmental problems. Founded by Kenny Ausubel and Nina Simons, the Bioneers network has turned into an intricately connected and growing web of visionaries who use nature as their model. They're not just activists and scientists. They're spiritual and community leaders, alternative health care professionals, herb growers, database designers, and young people who want a better world. They recognize that by working together, they have the ability to restore the earth and improve society. As the network gains momentum, Ausubel and Simons are more anxious than ever to spread bioneering ideas. They've created Bioneers: Revolution from the Heart of Nature, a radio series that now airs on 120 stations in the United States and 390 in Australia. They're looking into forming a speakers' bureau. And they're using the Internet. The organization has a "solutions strategies database" (www. bioneers.org) so the curious can participate in an "orgy of linking."
