Regeneration is starting to replace sustainability as the new paradigm for environmental thinking.

But what do we mean when we talk about a 'regenerative culture'? How do we reimagine ourselves living, playing, working and thriving in a city that nurtures the vital links between individuals, communities, and ecosystems?

What does a city able to regenerate itself on a regenerated planet look like? And how do we get there?

In this newsletter I am exploring the field of regenerative culture in Berlin, highlighting projects and ideas to improve food security, switch from fossil to renewable energy, create community resilience, establish different metrics for meaning and success and clean up the city's metabolism through circular waste models and waste prevention.
