and thorough reporting process aligned with standards in the global reporting community to bring benefits for a business and all of its stakeholders. In this, our first reporting guide, summarised best-practice methodologies from around the world and also taken a step towards embedded regenerative principles. You’ll note that we still regularly

may seem contradictory but, in

fact it demonstrates the broader

state of transition we are all in.

Regenerative Tourism Trail


In 2019, through the support of Australia's Victorian Tourism Industry Council and Peninsula Hot Springs, Matt Sykes assembled a 2030 vision for a 900km hot springs and bathing tourism route along Victoria's southern coastline. The Great Victorian Bathing Trail strategy is based on global research through Japan, China, Nordic region, UK and USA. 

The Great Victorian Bathing Trail is a scaleable model for regenerative tourism around the world, critically it demonstrates how tourism can be a catalyst for broader Regeneration - ecological, social, cultural, economic and spiritual.

21 Days of Regen,

A toolkit to kickstart 2021

The ’21 Days of Regen’ advent calendar is a fun and unconventional business toolkit for Australian and New Zealand changemakers to kickstart 2021. The toolkit emerged after a small group of super progressive business leaders from Melbourne gathered in response to a perfect storm - COVID-19, climate change, systemic racism, economic collapse and the inadequate narrative of Sustainability.
