Collaborations & Initiatives

Our growing intergenerational team continues to listen for new expressions of Beyond Boundaries. Together we are a kind of response team for our times, responding to invitations and calls for support from a growing global community of highly dedicated people and places working for a regenerative future.

These are opportunities to build alliances beyond boundaries, beyond culture, beyond our personal and organizational borders, alliances that foster intergenerational, cross-cultural collaboration in care for people, place and planet. BB projects are collaborative and involve diverse partnerships.

In 2012, we responded to calls from Tamera (Portugal), Findhorn (Scotland), International Peace Initiatives (Kenya), and Grandmother Margaret Behan of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers (Montana).

In 2013 and into 2014, we helped in the realization of the New Story Summit (Findhorn), The Bioneers Conference, the Tamera community’s Water Summit and Global Love School, the dreaming of a new Walking Water pilgrimage, which will begin September, 2015 in California, down through the Owens Valley to LA, the continued building of earth lodges and peace huts in Kenya, trainings in Council and Rites of Passage, an annual quest for activists, environmental leaders, and change agents, and consulting the development of a new youth program in Greece called SOAR… School for All Relations. Each of these collaborations has born fruit and the work continues into 2015.


What is the difference between Collaborations & Initiatives for BB?

Collaborations include one or more Beyond Boundarians as primary players. These are either by invitation from the organizing group or are initiated by a Beyond Boundarian member. Click on the links below to find out more about our collaborations.

Initiatives fall under the fiscal sponsorship of the Biosphere Foundation and are initiated by Beyond Boundaries. They often have co-sponsors as most all Beyond Boundary projects do. Click on the links below to find out more about our initiatives.
