A community of change-makers.
A weekend of play | connection | discovery.

Greenermind is a community of change-makers in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Washington, D.C.  We host the Greenermind Summit -- one part adult summer camp, one part unconference, and one part restorative retreat.

Is there a talent show? Yup. Do we make music around the campfire? Yup. Will you learn about cutting-edge ways people are solving wicked problems like sanitation in the developing world, gender bias at work, oceanic plastic pollution, affordable housing policy, and more? Duh — it wouldn’t be Greenermind without some serious nerding out.

At Greenermind you'll meet mission-driven people from diverse backgrounds. We are entrepreneurs, educators, designers, scientists, nonprofit leaders, corporate managers, artists, policy experts, front-line activists, and more.

Your experience is exactly what you make it. You can dive into facilitated activities or relish unstructured time. The entire weekend is sourced from our stellar community; you’re invited to present a workshop, lead a hike, create art, or bring anything you’d like to share.

If you have a passion to share, if you want to grow and explore, if your soul needs a pickup from this crazy world—join us.  We hope to see you this year.
