MOVING BEYOND GREEN: TOWARDS REGENERATIVE DEVELOPMENT

Thursday 17th May 2018 – Sydney

We are at a critical point in human history where there is a pressing need for a new development paradigm. Regenerative design and development is a practice, philosophy and process. Successful regeneration means to evolve and continually develop new potential. The dictionary definition addresses both the action and the source of this new potential: 1) to create anew and 2) to be born of a new spirit.

Because all the accrued “ecological debt” has created a situation whereby we must start to generate “ecological dividends” by moving beyond sustainable development towards restorative and regenerative cities and communities. Only then will we have the capacity to reverse climate change and other adverse impacts of our built environments and set a new course toward planetary stability.

So, how do we apply this idea to the design and development of our cities? An event with Bill Reed on Designing the Regenerative City will discuss just that from 5-7pm Thursday 17 May in Sydney, hosted by the UTS Faculty of Design, Architecture and Building.
