What is Regeneration?

Regenerative business and development is about creating the most positive impacts we can for our local community, ecology, culture and economy. Where sustainability aspires to do 'less harm', regeneration is about doing 'more good'.

We've literally searched the world, meeting eco-pioneers and studying best-practice projects. That's given us a solid perspective on what a regenerative future could look like.

But what's needed is a framework to guide leaders, of business, government and not for profit organisations, along that journey. That's where our team and tools comes in!

It's time to go beyond Sustainability and we have the tools to equip you.




Regular online events designed to equip you with skills for regenerative business & development practice.

Swimmable Birrarung / Yarra River, Melbourne

One of the major opportunities identified in the Great Victorian Bathing Trail strategy was for the City of Melbourne to make its iconic Yarra River safe to swim in by 2030. This is in line with benchmarks in Helsinki, Copenhagen, Oslo, London, Paris, Berlin and New York City. The river is known as Birrarung by local Aboriginal people, which means 'river of mists'.
