Welcome to Pollination 2019
Pollination 2019 is the annual gathering of the international Bloom Network – a global community founded to connect and support regenerative culture leaders – entrepreneurs, activists, artists, executives, academics, and visionaries.
As we face climate change and rapid economic shifts as a global civilization, there is a need for people everywhere to adopt regenerative practices, and for us to change many of our industrial systems from extractive to regenerative wherever possible.
We hold vision for a future NOW where resources are equitably distributed and accessible in creative harmony with nature.
Pollination is designed as a convergence of regenerative culture actors across divergent institutions, industries and governments. We gather to cultivate Collective Wisdom and catalyze real-world local ACTION that advances implementation of scalable ideas for global systemic change.

While mainstream media capitalizes on climate disasters, terrorism, religious and resource wars, a vast global network of initiatives are enacting mature, proactive solutions NOW. Many of these solutions are emerging from small subcultures or siloed industrial sectors.
Bloom Network has emerged as a decentralized vehicle to activate the full potential of CROSS-POLLINATION of these various regenerative culture actors to create a deeper, greater, further-reaching and longer-lasting collective impact. The network organizes online and in-person, with active Blooms beginning to grow in bioregions around the globe (each hosting their own events and launching local co-creations).
“The future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed.” – William Gibso
The efforts of Bloom Network are organized around 7 focus areas: Collective Wisdom, Global Justice, Community Health, Creative Arts, Ethical Technology, Peer-to-Peer Economy, and Earth Stewardship. We collaborate to share resources and ideas, to nurture people and the planet, to help restore healthy relationships and ecosystems. We actively work together to increase the visibility of what’s happening in the regenerative culture sphere so that the broader public can become aware of the resource and be fully empowered to TAKE ACTION.
Core values of the Bloom Network include 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, an initiative that is constantly adapting and evolving with the changing world around us. Together we creatively support each other’s potential and our collective capacity for love and respectful connection through manifestation of holistic regenerative culture.
