Join our enthusiastic community for a two-day interactive encounter on a critically timely topic: Symbiosis. The McKenna Academy of Natural Philosophy presents the first annual “Ripples of Change: Symbiosis Symposium.” We bring together a collection of powerful and passionate global voices actively engaged in cultivating the equilibrium needed for the future we seek to inherit.

Replay is available to all registrants.

A global community approach to regenerative solutions:

  • • Equity and social repair within food sovereignty and sustainable systems
  • • Social and ecological permaculture practices
  • • Whole systems thinking —from the personal to global scale
  • • Inspiration from the Amazon

Engage through visual storytelling from grassroots changemakers around the world, dynamic dialogues and panels. Come home with empowering takeaways: Resources & networks for continued inspiration & action.

Coordinated in collaboration with Permaculturalist Annaliese Hordern of Symbiotic Nature, and friends of our collective global community.
