Please join us for the 34th annual Bioneers Conference.

The Bioneers Conference is not a source of profit. Our standard registration rates are deeply subsidized to make the experience available for people from all walks of life. If we were to charge the actual cost, tickets would be closer to $1500 each. When you Pay It Forward by buying a higher-priced ticket, you make it possible for someone who shares your commitment but has more limited funds to join in the movement. We encourage you to register at the price you can afford and know your purchase is part of the Bioneers community traditions of diversity and inclusivity. 

Due to the complexity of this year's event, we will not be offering a digital live streaming option for the conference. Bioneers publicly releases and distributes all content from the conference over the course of the year on and via a variety of platforms and partners.

Individual: You are buying your tickets without employer funding, or have a more modest personal budget. 

Pay-It-Forward: Our Pay-it-Forward ticket price supports those who need our help to get to Bioneers 2023. If you’re an individual or organization with the means, choose the Pay-it-Forward option this year. Let’s continue to build a movement that brings everyone to the table to develop practical solutions needed to change the world. 

Student, Educator, Activist and Limited-Income Senior: Bioneers offers special-rate tickets to students, educators, activists and seniors with limited incomes only. 

Pre-Conference Tours: Bioneers is pleased to offer two different pre-conference tours of the East Bay this year. These tours are affiliated with the Bioneers Conference but require an additional purchase, offered separately. Bioneers Conference participants get a discounted rate on these tours. You will receive an email following your registration completion with details and more information. 

If you’re interested in purchasing a pre-conference tour without participating in the larger Bioneers Conference, please visit the tour page.

We look forward to seeing you in April!

Rising Appalachia at Freight & Salvage

  • A Friday Night Bioneers Concert

    A Friday Night Bioneers Concert

    We are delighted to be able to present Rising Appalachia in a special performance in one of the Bay Area’s most revered musical venues, Freight & Salvage to celebrate Bioneers' first year in Berkeley. Rising Appalachia, founded by Atlanta-raised, New Orleans-based sisters Leah and Chloe Smith, is renowned for its hauntingly beautiful soulful folk-roots music, but the band has also been truly exemplary in consistently using its platform to activate, organize and support frontline justice work and community organizations. Fifteen years into an adventure that has taken this self-made, stubbornly independent ensemble around the globe, they have recently released a new master-work, their seventh album, Leylines, recorded in California in a studio overlooking the Pacific Ocean and are eager to share their latest creation.

    8pm, Friday April 7th, 2020 Addison St, Berkeley

    NOTE: Access to this performance requires a separate registration from Bioneers attendees, with an additional $25 ticket price.

Help us invite diverse, worthy and essential voices to the Bioneers Conference. Your generous donation funds scholarships for leaders from all walks of life whose resources are many, but whose funds are few: engaged youth, Indigenous peoples, educators, seniors, caregivers, organizers and community-based change-makers. We are committed to removing financial barriers so that leaders of all ages, colors, backgrounds and classes can come together at Bioneers to co-create an inclusive, life-affirming, equitable and healthy society. Invest in our current and future leaders! Please give what you can and give generously.
