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

The children are helping regrow the forest next to the Barichara River…With special thanks to Oswaldo Escobar for guiding the kids through a process of making “seed bombs” filled with native seeds. These beautiful balls of soil are thrown into the riparian zone of the river.When the rains come, the seeds will germinate and take root. This is a powerful way to get children involved in critically important reforestation efforts.Here in Barichara, we are creating a regenerative Waldorf school that helps the children grow fully into themselves and also supports the restoration of rivers and forests in our territory.Really feeling

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

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 73 Critical Pedagogy is brainwashing. This isn’t rhetorical flourish or poetic license. The entire school of thought called Critical Pedagogy, which is wholly dominant in all our schools of education and educational institutions now, is brainwashing. It’s easy to see this by considering the words of people who use and promote Critical Pedagogy itself. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay takes you through three such people to make an irrefutable case that Critical Pedagogy really is nothing other than Woke brainwashing.

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

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 128 Woke Marxism has no limiting principles. It is, in fact, openly hostile to any such boundary on its own madness. As a result, it possesses no mechanisms to prevent the implementation of the worst possible ideas, as we often see, including in the education of young children. We have already seen this with drag queens, sex, sexuality, pleasure-based sex education, divisive Critical Race Theory in education, “gender affirming care” and transition, and who knows how much else. Now we confront “sanism” as a prejudice keeping the insane out of the classrooms

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 66 It is a persistent myth and common lie that Queer Education (Queer Pedagogy) is meant to in some way help “LGBTQ kids,” whether by fostering empathy, increasing visibility, providing role models, or whatever else. This is blatantly not true. In fact, it’s blatantly not true in their own words. “Queer” is not an identity at all, and it has nothing in principle to do with any sexuality, gender dysphoria (or sex confusion), or any other real thing. Queer is explicitly and intentionally an oppositional political stance. In this episode of New Discourses Bullets, host James Lindsay goes over
