The Monetary Reforms
The main focus of the conference will be for researchers to describe and make the case for the kind of monetary
reforms advocated, presenting both the logical and historical basis for them, and the mechanics of implementing them.
Extensive question and answer periods and panel discussions can air doubts or concerns regarding the desirability of
the reforms and suggest refinements. Included will be discussions of research and thinking methodology.
Achieving the Reforms – What we can do now
The Economics of Sustainability conference will focus on the intersection of Economics and the Environment.
What will the Earth look like in 2030, 2050, or 2100? Can we organize economic relationships to honor the carrying capacity of the Earth? Can we implement economic models that respect the Earth and its finite boundaries?
How will we mitigate the effects of climate change in a way that honors the Earth and puts people before profit?
Programs will include workshops, networking meetings, action groups, and outstanding presentations from economists, scientists, activists, and leaders in the environmental movement. The goal is to launch a platform for systemic change -- economically, culturally, politically -- and to network organizations for collaborative efforts in that pursuit.
After a quarter-century, the Bioneers community of leadership has learned a thing or two about breakthrough solutions and what directions to head in. Like a magnifying glass channeling sunlight, the “Growing The Movement” theme is designed to help focalize this wealth of community wisdom, skillfulness and vision into beams of action.
