ECO-CULTURAL FUTURISM: Co-creating Our Regenerative Future through DEAI & Innovation


ECO-CULTURAL FUTURISM: Co-creating Our Regenerative Future through DEAI & Innovation

Join us for an extraordinary talk and workshop with Nina Bazan-Sakamoto, a visionary leader at the forefront of regenerative change. In this immersive experience, we will embark on a transformative journey to explore the profound intersections of Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion (DEAI) in the regenerative movement. Through guided meditations, ancestral connections, and interactive activities, Nina will guide you in designing your own standards for DEAI, fostering a deep-rooted commitment to social and environmental justice. We will pinpoint where exploitative systems are still being perpetuated, and release them, thus opening up opportunities for diverse communities to step into their gifts, and to cultivate a collaborative abundance of innovative solutions, including the radical re-imagination of spaces in both urban and rural areas.

Discover the transformative potential of Eco-Cultural Futurism as you tap into your ancestral eco-wisdom, unveil your burning passions, and reimagine your unique impact (aka Regenerative Dharma) on the world. Join us for a journey of self-discovery, collaboration, and planting seeds of change into the Earth as we dance in celebration of our shared vision. Don't miss this opportunity to be part of this regenerative movement, that is accessible, expansive, heals the past, shapes the present, and creates a brighter future for all.
