PEOPLE AND NATURE
Just what is regenerative design? To “regenerate” involves a simulation of natural processes by restoring or renewing its own resources.
How we build environments has a significant impact on our climate—from how projects are constructed, to how they are used, and eventually disassembled.
We cultivate communities and structures not just in the context of doing less harm. It must benefit the people who use them and the local ecology that surrounds them.
DESIGN FOR RESILIENCE & REGENERATION
There is a growing recognition of going beyond "sustainability," a neutral point of not doing further damage to our ecosystem. To transform the existing worldview of meeting the minimum standards of change, we need to shift our perspective to reconnect us back to our belonging within living systems. We then shape the reality we want by designing better systems as a whole.
We create spaces for exchanging learnings about regenerative design and solutions. In the process, our journey aims to scale existing regenerative solutions for scalability and collective impact.
