Better Futures With Bioneers
On a typically sunny Californian Friday, close to 2000 people descended upon the Marin Center hall to immerse in the 26th Bioneers conference.
Some of our team were there to reconnect with fellow Kiwis, entrepreneurs, global friends, and to make new connections.
Sessions ranged from enchanting rhythmical storytelling with Michael Meade (anthropologist) and John Densmore of The Doors, to lessons learnt in the wake of the Hurricane Sandy rebuild. Each and every contributor mesmerised the room with tales of their journey.
