Yesterday we visited the birthplace of the mighty Colorado Riverā€¦ high up in Rocky Mountain National Park where it begins at La Poudre Pass. We came here with a sacred mission: To feel the life of an entire river from headwaters to the sea and awaken the dream that the entire basin is regenerated in theĀ future.It was incredible to feel the power of the Colorado so close to its origin. We walked onto the Colorado River Trail which begins 7.6 miles from the pass. Even at such close proximity to its beginnings, we could feel the water gushing and churning

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

I want to talk about a topic that quietly resides in the shadowsā€Šā€”ā€Šyet has significant consequences in the world as time goes by. As a visible leader in the regenerative movement, I have participated in and observed various conflicts throughout the last severalĀ years.Rifts arose in the social fabric that remained invisible to people who care about regenerating landscapes and communities all over the world. Hidden divisions remained in the field of relationships causing harm that no one could see. Earlier this year, I was part of a visible rift that took place on Twitter between myself and members of the

On May 19th, we embark upon a life-changing adventure to awaken the dream to regenerate the Colorado RiverĀ Basinā€¦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 aĀ 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 landscapesā€Šā€”ā€Šuntil they emerge as continental tapestries of regeneration. Right now this dream is expressing itself around four major regions of theĀ Earth:Cascadia in the northwestern part of NorthĀ America;The Great Lakes of NorthĀ America;The ā€œGreat Turnā€ of the Northern Andes in Colombia; andThe Colorado River Basin of the southwest in NorthĀ 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,

I have a dream of bringing dead rivers back toĀ life.Those among us who are ready to devote our lives to regenerating the Earth must dare to dream beyond what feels possible today. On May 21st, two friends and I will embark upon a sacred journey to feel what it means to regenerate the Colorado RiverĀ Basin.Is this a crazy thing to do? Not by a long shot. The human world has gone insane and this feels healthier than sitting in the dysfunction all around us. We will start by visiting the major headwaters along the western slopes of the Rockiesā€Šā€”ā€Šgathering gift

Iā€™m not going to sugarcoat this. We are in ecological overshoot. All unsustainable human cultures on Earth are in the process of becoming compost for future generations.This statement is empirically supported in two ways. Firstly, there are zero examples of sustainable empires or civilizations from the past. All of them have collapsed and the current one will be no different.Secondly, the convergence of observations about every health indicator imaginable for the Earth reveals that the explosion of human population in the last century was at the expense of degradation for landscapes all over the planet. We have converted Earthā€™s biodiversity

The living systems of Earth are already interwoven. This simple truth should have profound consequences for how we as humans organize ourselves across the landscapes of our precious home planet. Yet if you look at most maps created by humans, you will notice how frequently we project our own delusions of separation on the world aroundĀ us.Political maps exemplify what I am talking about. The one you see below has carved the Earth up into the spoils of domination and war among human factions. Why is one half of Lake Ontario in Canada and the other in the United States? How

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,
