In 2019, Burning Man Project committed to a 10-year Environmental Sustainability Roadmap collaboratively written by 55 people. Our goals are to sustainably manage waste, be ecologically regenerative, and be carbon negative by 2030. We have a plan for carbon dioxide removal that we will review on the call as part of our discussion about sustainability at Burning Man Project. We welcome feedback and collaboration.

Enter the Kindling Escape Pod

Exit the 24-hour News Cycle

We know things can feel a little overwhelming sometimes. The Kindling team put its heads together about what we all need came up with a cozy escape pod for any and all to curl up in and hide from the 24-hour news cycle. Introducing the Kindling Escape Pod, featuring Slow TV from our friends at Nomad, colouring pages, deep playa DJ sets, a virtual tea ceremony, and…baby animals. Get some snacks. Climb in. Seal the hatch. And forget the world. It’s nice in here.

Kindling’s 5 Vice-Breakers to Stop the Digital Doom Scrolling

Keeping up with the ever-changing landscape of very important issues and events affecting our day-to-day existence becomes overwhelming for even the heartiest woke activist. Something we learn as Burners, and as everyday humans, is that a change of scene into immediate reality is the key to shifting your mindset. And it doesn’t take a big, loud, shiny object to bring about that instant shift (although that does help). All around you there are wondrous things to do, you just need to open your eyes to the possibilities.

Regional Events

Burning Man recognizes these community organized events as official Regional Events that are endorsed by local Burning Man Regional Contacts and organized in a manner that is consistent with agreed upon standards and the guiding 10 Principles of Burning Man (link to principles). For more information and updates, you can reach out to these recognized events directly.

Regional Network Forum

In June 2021, the Burning Man Regional Network Forum: Emerging, Wayfinding, Igniting was held as an online regathering for all community leaders across the globe to re-inspire engagement in Burning Man culture beyond Black Rock City and strengthen the cultural connections between regional communities after a year of cancelled Regional Events, prototyping COVID-safe interactive art experiences, and pandemic-related isolation.
