Frontrange Eco Social Solutions - Bioneers Network Event
Front Range Ecosocial Solutions is a Bioneers Network event hosted at CU Boulder every February. Produced by the CU Environmental Center, this conference brings together solutionaries from across Colorado to share experiences, information, and regenerative design strategies. On February 3rd, 2017, Kate and Eliot from Solutions Voyage helped facilitate a session at the conference entitled “Ecosocial Design from the Micro to the Macro: Creating a Perennial Economy.” Co-presented with Michael Alcazar and Braeden Miguel, the session focused on applying the patterns of nature to improving our lives, from the individual to the societal level. With particular insight from mycorrhizae, nature’s master networking organisms, we led interactive activities design to connect participants to one another and harvest the key challenges experienced by the group. We began with an eye connection exercise in small groups, a powerful and quick way to break barriers and allow for deeper conversation. Then every group answered two questions: what is an area in which you would like to see yourself grow and improve, and what is your biggest fear as you move toward strengthening that part of your life?
