HiveMind is the main gathering for the Evolver Network's Bay Area Spore.
"What we require is a trans-local movement of civil society, on a global scale, where people come together in local communities to address the complete scope of our situation in "living learning laboratories," sharing the best practices and techniques for re-localizing basic production of goods, foodstuffs, and energy. We need a movement away from the industrial-age ideals of growth, toward "slow living," toward enhancing the quality of life, and an equitable sharing of resources on a planetary scale.
The Evolver Network provides a prototype for a self-organizing social movement that meshes together local communities who are creating an alternative model for future society, which we call "The New Planetary Culture."
-Daniel Pinchbeck, Evolver Co-Founder
