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

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

New Discourses Bullets, Ep. 61 Why are Gnostic cults so tempting? Why do people get sucked into them? It’s not because Gnostics go around telling people they’re wrong. It’s because they go around telling people they’re limited. Your beliefs, maybe in science, spirituality, Christianity, politics, or whatever, aren’t wrong; they’re low-level. The Gnostics hold themselves out as people who know more about whatever you’re into than you do, and they explain their superiority as being “liberated” from the limitations “THEY” (your teachers, pastors, etc.) are placing upon your knowledge. They don’t want you to know these secrets, but we do. That’s the Gnostic temptation. Host James Lindsay

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 123 The American Library Association (ALA) is a fully captured institution headed by a Queer Marxist organizer named Emily Drabinski. That means it is time to do what we should have done a long time ago: break away from the American Library Association. The state of Montana has already done this at the state level, and other states should follow. Some already are. Local municipalities and districts, including school districts, should do so as well, as soon as possible. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay makes it

I related something surprising to her: I feel like a failure all the time. She was taken aback, and we discussed it for a while. I think this is a fairly common belief in people who are standing up to protect our societies, but it’s

It has long been known that the political boundaries of the world as they are today do not readily map onto the landscapes of challenges for ecological or social health. We need a different way of organizing ourselves. The most coherent way to organize humanity is in the bioregional approach of holistic landscapes and cultural identities.One powerful way to do this is embodied in the concept of a bioregional learning center — which is an educational hub for gathering and synthesizing knowledge about local ecology and culture. This ten minute video gives a flavor of the potential that exists to be unleashed
