Regeneration Projects

Growing Businesses & Communities Differently

We are the Change!
Our Services

It's time to regenerate our Earth and we believe that collaboration is the key.

The world is in transition. COVID-19, Climate Change, economic recession and the Black Lives Matter movement are the signs of old ways passing and a new wave of business is starting to emerge. Regeneration Projects exists to support the leaders creating this Earth-wide shift; Indigenous and non-Indigenous, established and emerging.

First we need to break down the industry silos and economic narratives that are binding us. We do this through brokering unexpected partnerships, facilitating cross-sector roundtable discussions and managing industry alliances. We also offer services to purpose-driven businesses and organisations that enable their transition from a Sustainability 'less harm' mindset to a Regenerative 'more benefit' strategy.

Together, let's fully embrace the Regen movement!


Earth needs us to rise up now, together. Let's collaborate on game-changing regeneration projects! 



Our 'Regen Roadmap' focuses on increasing your impact to community, nature, culture, trade & education.



Embedding regenerative principles in your business or organisation's DNA will take it to a whole new level.

Our Impact

Empowering leaders through Regen

Regeneration Projects is a small Melbourne-based consultancy with a global impact. We work directly with progressive purpose-driven leaders who are prepared to challenge the status quo. Our 20 plus years of combined experience working with eco-pioneers carries through in our uncompromising commitment to the spirit of collaboration, in sync with SDG 17 - Partnerships for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

Our Alignment

Leading by example

At Regeneration Projects we align our work with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as well as the emerging 2021-2030 Decade on Ecosystem Restoration. We're are a 1% for the Planet business member and an aspiring B Corp. We also offset all our carbon emissions through Gold Standard projects.

Our Origins

Thinking local, acting global

Regeneration Projects was born in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. Our first project was a submission to the United Nations World Tourism Organisation's 'Healing Solutions Tourism Challenge'. We proposed a 

regenerative development framework to assist in kickstarting the global industry. It remains at the core of our work. 

We acknowledge our Earth and the daily services that her ecosystems provide us.

We acknowledge the First Nations people of the lands, waters and seas where we work as well as their living connection to Country through Elders past, present & emerging.


We acknowledge the many paths of migration that enrich our community through culture, trade and stories.
