At the Design School for Regenerating Earth, we are about to embark on a learning journey to birth a planetary network of bioregional learning centers.We have developed a framework for the regeneration of large-scale landscape systems that brings together many tools and approaches from around the world. We call it the Platform for Bioregional Regeneration and it has three foundational pillars:Creation of a learning ecosystem organized around at least one bioregional learning center for every unique landscape on Earth.Weave a tapestry of local projects into holistic, integrated landscapes that are organized as watersheds, coastal estuaries, mountain ranges, and other geophysical features of

Yesterday we gathered with teachers, parents, and regenerative practitioners in the community who work with children. It is becoming more clear that we can begin a Waldorf model focused on two levels — children between the age of 4 and 6; and children ages 7 to 8.We are also seeing how the donations raised so far for the school can help support reforestation efforts and restoration of the Barichara watershed. All of this can be done with children at the heart of our work together.The children played amongst us as we talked. Elise keeps telling me how she wants this school to be

Birthing of Bioregional Learning Centers :: A Learning JourneyOne of our great challenges in the world today is learning how to live in place as part of the tapestry of living systems. In the midst of accelerating breakdown and collapse, our education systems are grossly inadequate to the context we are in now. It is time to re-imagine human existence as place-based expressions of unique culture and ecology — or said another way, we need to become bioregional.The Design School for Regenerating Earth was created to support learning exchanges within and among landscapes where regenerative work is being done on the ground. We are

Yesterday we experienced the feeling of Regenerate Cascadia being born as a social movement in the world. In the photo above, you can see me giving a talk at Lost Valley Educational Center just south of Eugene, Oregon to an audience of 50 people.It was incredible to hold a collective dream for the future of humanity and watch it take root in the hearts of many people at the same time. Many had tears in their eyes. The energy was palpable. Some would say afterwards that they had been waiting for this moment all of their lives.This is only our second stop

We are inviting new members to join the Design School for Regenerating Earth at the affordable price of $5 per month. Just imagine it, you can learn how to heal entire landscapes and participate in on-the-ground actions in diverse regions of the world for roughly the cost of a latte at Starbucks.When we launched the Design School three months ago, we started with a Design Level Membership for $50 per month that is for those who want to run design labs and activate landscape collaborations.Now we are introducing the Community Level Membership for $5 per month that makes it much

On May 19th, we embark upon a life-changing adventure to awaken the dream to regenerate the Colorado River Basin…The Colorado River is probably the most conflicted and challenging body of water in the world. It has a vast networks of dams to control its water flows and generate electricity or food for 30 million human inhabitants. Textbooks present this incredible river system as the standard example for how NOT to manage a river.It was famously divided into promised volumes of water to different states during a record decade of high precipitation. This means it is over allocated and has been since the

When we opened the Design School for Regenerating Earth, our dream was to weave patterns of ecological and social restoration across entire landscapes — until they emerge as continental tapestries of regeneration. Right now this dream is expressing itself around four major regions of the Earth:Cascadia in the northwestern part of North America;The Great Lakes of North America;The “Great Turn” of the Northern Andes in Colombia; andThe Colorado River Basin of the southwest in North America.Our ambitious vision is to activate a Planetary Network of Bioregions with learning exchanges within and between them. This is fundamental to living out The Design Pathway for Regenerating Earth.Right now,

Everything is connected. This simple truth has profound consequences. It should be obvious that all knowledge is connected too — though this is clearly not the case. Simply look at any course catalogue at a university and you will find that knowledge has been divided into disciplinary silos and academic departments.When I went to college back in 1995, I arrived with a full scholarship that allowed me to meander across the course offerings without selecting a major. It was commonplace that a friend would come across me on campus and we’d strike up a conversation. Many a time it was that I

This article is an invitation into the Design School for Regenerating Earth.People all over the world are gathering to learn how to restore landscapes, collaborate to achieve systemic outcomes, and work together in service to safeguarding our planetary future.When I wrote The Design Pathway for Regenerating Earth, it was to show that it really is possible to do this at the necessary scales. We can organize ourselves around holistic, integrated landscapes known as bioregions. Create prosocial groups that know how to work toward shared goals. And weave across features of landscapes to collaborate at continental and planetary scales.https://medium.com/media/03ea951aec929d1ecf25c9b1e659f499/hrefBack in 2020,
