We’re living in a thriller that only reality could write. Breakdown and breakthrough – death and rebirth - creative destruction writ large. As this year’s Bioneers Conference will exemplify, there’s as much cause for hope as for horror, and the ground truth is that how this story turns out is up to us. Nothing less than a step change in human evolution will do. Never has it been more important for us to exercise our vision, our agency, our solidarity and our voices.

That’s what we’ll all be doing together at Bioneers 2018. The theme is “Pathways Forward,” and we’re excited to release the slate of keynotes.

Some highlights:

The mystery of consciousness and the renaissance of the science of psychedelics

Bestselling author of landmark books such as The Botany of Desire and The Omnivore’s Dilemma that have challenged our fundamental civilizational assumptions, Michael Pollan once again bravely ventures where angels fear to tread. His new book How To Change Your Mind surveys the highly controversial terrain of the renaissance of both the science and popular usage of psychedelic substances.




Climate Leadership

The Ceibo Alliance Leadership Team: Emergildo Criollo, Hernan Payaguaje, Alicia Salazar and Norma Nenquimo
Guardians of the Forest on the Frontlines in the Amazon

In response to catastrophic assaults on their lands and cultures by corporate industrial civilization, the First Peoples of the Amazon have formed unprecedented alliances to protect lands and peoples. These four extraordinary Indigenous leaders, who help guide the Ceibo Alliance of several ancestral peoples of Ecuador’s northern Amazon, have traveled far from their homes to share their stories of resistance and solutions. They will offer guiding wisdom from their elders to show what’s at stake for their rainforest territories, what it means to the future of our planet, and what we can all do as allies to protect the Amazon, its First Peoples and life on Earth.

Gender Equity, Social Equality, Social Transformation, and More

Patrisse Cullors, an artist, organizer and performer, is one of the three original co- founders of Black Lives Matter and founder of a non-profit organization, Dignity and Power Now, which helped force the creation of the first civilian oversight commission over the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. She is the author of When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir.




 Kevin Powell
Re-defining Manhood: A Message to Men, to Boys, to Us All In this brutally honest and provocative talk, Kevin Powell offers his own life journey to illustrate how we can transform our concepts of manhood. Raised by a single mother in the inner city, Kevin’s rites of passage were typical of many heterosexual males: sports, violence, and viewing women and girls as mother figures or sexual objects, and nothing more. This view of women and girls exploded when, in his early 20s, he pushed a girlfriend into a bathroom door during an argument. Decades later, thanks to years of therapy, study, healing, and a commitment to growth and change, Kevin has become a solution-oriented writer, activist and speaker seeking to re-define manhood around nonviolence, peace, love, healthy self-expression, and as an ally to women and people of all gender identities.
