Transform your personal life and catalyze lasting social change with the power of regenerative design.

Burnout, discouragement, and overwhelm are inevitable patterns for changemakers, until we remember that we are creative, powerful agents who can shape our personal circumstances and exert influence on wider social systems. With regenerative design frameworks, align with your highest potential and design profound change in your personal life, organizations, and in the world around you.


Regenerative Design for Changemakers is a compelling and accessible guide plus curriculum that calls changemakers to action by applying ecosystem intelligence and anti-oppression practices to their social impact projects. Taking a fractal approach, readers learn scaleable principles and frameworks to redesign their inner lives, relationships with others, and wider communities in accordance with regenerative patterns from the natural world.


This guide covers:


  • 45 social permaculture exercises that champion changemakers in replacing degenerative patterns with regenerative, life-affirming practices
  • Justice-based frameworks and ecological principles to heal from racism and other forms of oppression
  • A "Social Design Lab" for analyzing and designing one's own changemaking projects
  • Group resilience frameworks, including project accountability buddies, implementation teams, and coalition- building.


Regenerative Design for Changemakers is an essential guide for educators and higher education students, organizational changemakers, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders pursuing a regenerative future for the 21st century.
