Sustainability is about sustaining all life – and is achievable if we redevelop our understanding of the whole system of life-giving processes. Then, we can reintegrate our buildings – and our communities – with life on Earth and have our built environment become a process of healing and restoration. To do this, we need to shift the role of humans so we participate with nature as co-equals.  This presentation explores the practical concepts of integrating our technical perspectives with the living system processes that support life. This is not as hard as it may seem – if we make a real change in the way we think.


  1. Learn the basics of regeneration design and development.
  2. Increase understanding of how our built form can help heal our damaged planet.
  3. Explore some of the practical concepts of applying regenerative design and development.
