Some Bloom Bay Area folks have been attending a conference on regenerative finance, urban planning, agriculture and climate, and network collaboration. It's called ReGen, and you can check out the program here!
One of the sessions we attended was on Harvesting the Wisdom of Networks, and it was a well-designed small group breakout discussion that helped participants connect in tangible ways and activate the possibilities inherent in the room. It was co-led by people from the Evolutionary Leadership Institute, Regenesis, and Capital Institute.
You can read the recap here along with photos!
Bloom Network has been developing some infrastructure for regenerative initiatives and communities/networks to share resources and wisdom with each other. It is peer-led by local chapter leaders on the ground who are community organizers attuned to many different communities in their regions. They produce events and media to help the broader public find what is happening and participate in regenerative culture.
In the next couple months, we'll be implementing social media features online including a wiki for people to share best practices and find who is working on what in the regenerative culture area they're interested in, interactive webcasts for networking and resource sharing, etc. You can connect via our website at http://bloomnetwork.org, and attend our conference, HiveMind, in San Francisco this fall. HiveMind is focused on collaborative action coordination.
We're mostly designed to help scale up what is working well, and better connect regenerative culture makers across different sectors or movements so we can more quickly address climate change, divest/invest, etc.
is an international collective of people and projects in service to regenerative culture. This blog features events and media from Bloom's local chapters in 34 cities across 6 countries.
