Goodwin: Bioneers Conference ‘inspiring’

“Revolution From the Heart of Nature.” That is the theme for the 7th annual Utah Bioneers Conference that opened Friday night in the Logan Tabernacle and continues with all day sessions on Friday and Saturday at Utah State University’s Eccles Conference Center. Co-chairman Jim Goodwin says it is part of a national Bioneers Conference that started in San Rafael, California 21 years ago where Goodwin previously lived.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Tuesday, Goodwin said the national speakers this year include the famous Dr. Jane Goodall and international climate change authority James Hansen, who was formerly with NASA. The conference comes at the end of USU’s Natural Resources and Sustainability Week and Goodwin says anyone attending should be able to find one or more topics of real interest.”While we’re dealing with lots of difficult and challenging areas that we have to deal with, it’s really a conference that deals with solutions and talks about hope,” Goodwin explained. “It isn’t just doomsday talk and then you go home. And we can tell that by the way our attendees evaluate the program. “They are truly inspired, and it is inspiring. The answers are out there. We just need to employ them.”Goodwin says, unfortunately, social equity too often gets left behind. Students, faculty, staff and the general public are invited to attend this year’s Bioneers Conference. More information about the conference is available at
