This is a sketch of Bloom Network’s wiki and curation framework. It is an output of a six-year process of community organizing among 200 leaders in eleven countries, from 2009-2014. A team of eight people came together to create a “brand framework” that would support cross-movement solidarity, and make regenerative practices more accessible to the large numbers of people who will need them.

The tags here will be used in blog posts and wiki articles. Many of these tags will have their own wiki article that describe what the practice is, how to learn more about it, and what organizations are doing it well.

Bloom Network members can contribute articles to this wiki, and edit existing entries together. The purpose of our wiki is ultimately to direct people to where they can get involved in these activities in the places where they live. We also hope that people will utilize this resource to begin to make changes within their industries and workplaces. Members can also convene online workshops and discussions about these topics through Bloom’s Zoom platform.

Earth Stewardship

Topic Tags

Please note: Bloom’s Community Team is currently discussing changing the wording on this overall topic area, to reflect the more interconnected nature of balanced relations with the Earth. We’ve received feedback that stewardship is a problematic word here, particularly in non-English languages where the translation often connotes a colonial relationship with land.
