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.

Through its Expert Workshop Series 2022, RESPOND, the BMW Foundation, Circle Economy, and SYSTEMIQ aim to foster the dialogue around the transition towards a Regenerative Economy.


In this workshop series, we are bringing together experts on new economic models, business leaders, innovators, and changemakers from various sectors of society.


This series aims to reflect on, discuss, and develop a common understanding of regenerative systems and their roles in the economic transition the world urgently needs.


‘Our financial and economic systems need to align with the only system that has stood the test of time, and let that be the guiding principle. That is nature.’ – Laura Storm (2022)





The paper details reflections and understandings on the key tenets of the regenerative economy, which is a radically different way of forming systems, businesses and mutual understandings.


It explores how the concept of regeneration can move the economy to better align with nature’s principles and processes, while holding a deeper sense of agency and interconnectedness with the ecosystem within which it sits.
