WHO WE ARE AND HOW WE BEGAN:
Solutionary Events is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, creating healthy, compassionate, and regenerative communities through leading socially responsible and educational events. We began as a small group of passionate humane educators associated with the Solutionary Species movement (the movement to help people understand how to become part of the world’s solutions instead of contributing to the world’s problems by making healthy and conscientious lifestyle choices), 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.
HOW SOLUTIONARY EVENTS GREW:
After the first summer camp and 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 a healthy, compassionate, and sustainable world, our team grew, along with our ambitions. Many of our team members 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 with practical and effective solutions. Our team at Solutionary Events coordinates festivals, workshops, concerts, races/walks, seminars, and other events that align with our mission. More can be learned at www.SolutionaryEvents.com. Solutionary Events coordinates and/or is partnered with some of the largest vegan events in Florida, including Central Florida Earth Day, Central Florida Veg Fest, Sarasota Veg Fest, Gainesville VegFest, and Tampa Bay Veg Fest.
The idea for the Solutionary Peace Walk & Festival was sparked by our team’s interest in teaching people the true meaning of “peace.” Many people dream of world peace, but not so many people are talking about how to make that possible. We at Solutionary Events feel that leading educational events to teach people about making conscientious lifestyle choices is a major solution to creating world peace. Every one of our team members has expressed how they know they are making a difference in communities throughout Florida 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.
