  It is the objective of IBS to train participants to become 
effective catalysts in the regeneration of  the planet. The 
"Bioregional" perspective means that our focus is  on the 
design and evolution of healthy, interdependent and self-reliant 
  Today we can not just, "Think  Globally and  Act Locally" We 
also need to, "Think Long Term and Act Now". Therefore, IBS was 
founded to demonstrate the recent, ecologically oriented, scientific,   
social   and   technological   achievements   that   are relevant  
to  achieving  the   goal   of   an   ecological  society.
