Solutions, solutions, solutions. From the Global Green Deal, a comprehensive plan for restoring the Earth, to the inspiring programs and policies of one city that is going green. This program is full of practical strategies to turn eco-centered visions into living realities that deliver jobs and profits.

The Bioneers series consists of three sets of 13 programs each:

Bioneers Series I The Bioneers: Revolution From the Heart of Nature
Bioneers Series II "Improving Environment By Changing The World
Bioneers Series III 

Inspired by the philosophies of the Deep Ecology movement, the Bioneers are heroic examples of people living as if nature mattered. Join us as we look deeply into the magic and mystery of the convergence between leading-edge science and ancient wisdom for a Declaration of Interdependence for the new millennium. Though these programs were produced in the 1990s the contents of this series are timelessly relevant.
