Learn to create systems that are mutually symbiotic with the Earth’s biosphere.
Restore and regenerate ecosystems while providing just and equitable outcomes for everyone
Integrated Regenerative Design provides a professional design and development framework that enables designers and implementers to work together using integrated and trans-disciplinary approaches to create projects, products, and processes that are ethically grounded, ecologically regenerative, and economically sound.
Our goal is to create systems that are:
Human technologies developed over the past several hundred years have tended to be extractive, leaving the biosphere increasingly degraded as they have expanded. Imagine technology that is instead designed to function as an integral part of the Earth’s living systems. Learn More →
In order to be mutually symbiotic with nature, technologies must be designed to be deeply compatible with life in all its forms. We must design technology that regenerates the broad ecosystems of the Earth, that can function regeneratively, with sustainable energy and resource cycles, and that also support the kind of human societies we want to live in.

Complex systems are constantly growing and evolving, making it meaningless to attempt creating sustainable systems through static, non-adaptive design. To succeed, designs must be regenerative, creating systems that evolve and adapt over time in ways that make them more resilient and productive. Learn More →
Since all real wealth is derived from the Earth’s biosphere, we have to regenerate our ecosystems if we want to create real wealth into the future. Creating notional wealth by artificially growing the monetary and financial systems does nothing to increase the wellbeing of the people those systems are meant to serve. Learn More →
