Regenesis is a world leader in the field of regenerative development—an approach to land use, community development, and the built environment that has defined the leading edge of sustainability practice for more than two decades.
Those looking to advance the field of sustainability have taken up a powerful challenge. Aiming beyond the goal to do less harm, these pioneers are committed to proving that human activity can be a source of health and regeneration, rather than destruction and degradation. Living up to this promise will require humans to step up and develop a firm grasp of the complex working of natural systems in order to harmonize and evolve with nature.
Regenesis supports this work through client services—providing the foundational thinking and management support needed to engage in regenerative projects and community development initiatives worldwide—as well as through education programs for practitioners of architecture, planning and community development.

What is Warm Data?
Information that does not take into account the full scope of interrelationality in a system is likely to inspire misguided decision-making, which compounds already “wicked” problems. Warm Data is not meant to replace or in any way diminish other data, but rather it is meant to keep data of certain sorts “warm” — with a nest of relations intact.

THE INTERNATIONAL BATESON INSTITUTE
A Social-Benefit Thinking Group
Inspired by Batesonian concepts, the IBI furthers the research on transcontextuatlity and how interactions in complex, living systems can be understood and positively influenced.
The mission of the Ekskäret Foundation is to both to make sense of the world we create and allow brave spaces for people to explore and work on their inner growth. Studies show that having a “safe place” in connection to nature, where we dare to challenge ourselves, can act as important catalysts for the process of personal development. We supports and contributes to these brave places by creating contexts and locations for transformative learning, where skills can be developed to better handle the rapid change and the constantly increasing complexity of our world. Skills that increase our capacity for deeper understanding and wisdom, which then engages individuals to become active co-creators in the world we create.
The Ekskäret Foundation works together with selected partners from business, non-profit, and academic sectors. The Foundation operates without profit interests and is a religiously and ideologically independent organization. http://ekskaret.se/

Inner Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals were created as a roadmap to a sustainable future. We are now creating the Inner Development Goals – a framework of the capabilities, qualities, and skills that are needed to achieve the 17 goals. Our aim is to educate, inspire and empower people to be a positive force for change in society, in their own lives and those around them, and at the same time find purpose and meaning in their lives. The IDGs will provide a collective framework that helps us to solve complex problems. It will be a useful compass that encourages personal growth for everyone. This is especially useful for people in leading positions.
