We live in a time of rampant pollution and waste, resource scarcity, biodiversity loss, and warming global temperatures.
Without action, climate breakdown could displace hundreds of million people by 2050 and result in a disastrous loss of biodiversity. In crafting a way forward for future generations, we are faced with an enormous task: redesigning our systems—and fast.
But the good news is that changemakers around the world are championing alternative ways of living. Many of these are inspired by nature itself, as well as traditional, indigenous, and pre-industrial practices that hinge on careful resource use and management—necessitating respect for and emulation of the natural environment.
This is where the regenerative economy comes in. Now is the time to bring clarity to this transformative concept to help us move from theory to action.
