Who we are
Regenesis is a world leader in the field of regenerative development—an approach to land use, community planning, and the built environment that has defined the leading edge of sustainability practice for over two decades.
Regenesis was founded in 1995 as a coalition of pioneers, bringing together top educators in the field of permaculture (sustainable land-use planning) with thought leaders in the world of business planning and organizational development. The founders’ mission was to transform the development industry into one that contributes to, rather than undermines, the health of the planet. Quickly, the Regenesis approach attracted leaders in the then-emerging green building movement, who have brought this work into diverse project settings around the globe.
In 2012, Regenesis launched a series of educational offerings for sustainability practitioners interested in integrating regenerative development into their practice. This program is ongoing, and now supports an emerging network of regenerative development practitioners in communities all over the world.
