Bloom is an in-person social network that uses online tools to collaborate toward regenerating the planet.
We connect and support makers of regenerative culture, and inspire people who want to “do something” but don’t know where to start. We address the lack of interconnectivity across movements to support collective impact. We collaborate to share resources and ideas, to nurture people and the planet to help restore healthy relationships and ecosystems. Like William Gibson once wrote, “The future is already here – it's just not evenly distributed”.
Our efforts are centered around 7 key topic areas: collective wisdom, global equity, community health, the creative arts, sustainable technology, peer-to-peer economy, and earth stewardship.
Local Bloom chapters all over the world host creative events and collaborative actions. Some of our core values are equitable resource sharing, decentralized leadership, and a felt sense of connection with the natural world and our shared humanity. We take care to create deeper awareness about oppression, to support autonomy and anti-colonialism as well as healing from our traumas. On the web, we practice radical creative possibilities of virtual connection. Together we creatively support each other’s potential and our collective capacity for love and respectful connection.
