“Never doubt that a small group of committed citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.” ~Margaret Mead
Solutionary Events is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, creating healthy, compassionate, and sustainable communities through leading socially responsible and educational vegan events. We began as a small group of passionate humane educators (we called ourselves Solutionary Species – and still do), offering workshops and school programs to teach youth about being kind to animals and nature. In 2016, our group was offered a grant from The Pollination Project, which made the first Solutionary Heroes Summer Camp possible. Solutionary Heroes Summer Camp, which took place at a unique botanical garden in Williston, Florida, was featured in the Huffington Post.
With greater attention to our cause and empowered team members, we could see the solutionary movement expanding. As we met new people interested in creating solutions, our team grew, along with our ambitions. Many of us are now involved with the Solutionary Species Movement, as well as the organization, Solutionary Events. Solutionary Species continues to lead the educational concepts of transforming humans from a problematic species to a solutionary species, a species committed to conquering problems (relating to people, animals, AND the environment) with practical and effective solutions. Our team at Solutionary Events coordinates festivals, workshops, concerts, races/walks, seminars, beach/park cleanups, and other events that align with our mission. More can be learned at www.solutionaryevents.com.
The idea for Sarasota’s Solutionary Health Festival was sparked by our team’s interest in teaching people the true meaning of “health.” Many people talk about health and disease treatment, but not so many people are talking about how to prevent and reverse disease through healthy and long-term solutions. We at Solutionary Events feel that leading educational events to teach people about making conscientious lifestyle choices is a major solution to creating a healthy world. Every one of our team members has expressed how they know they are making a difference in communities throughout Florida and beyond through the rewarding work we do. We believe that everyone has the opportunity and responsibility to become the heroes they’ve always wanted to be. We hope to continue expanding and to help more people feel empowered to make a difference in the world.
