This is a collaborative, open-source research project designed to discover innovative and regenerative solutions to the current social and environmental challenges we are facing on the planet today. We are re-evaluating all social systems with the intention of upgrading or redesigning all systems necessary
to support the optimal health and evolution of the planet as a whole.
“In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete.”
– Richard Buckminster Fuller
Our vision is to create a regenerative community development model for human civilization that is scaleable, replicable
and ecologically integrated into the local and global ecosystem.
Support the optimal health and evolution of planet Earth
Secondary (& Beyond)
Conduct prototype research and social experimentation that would provide mindful insight and guidance
for the conscious creation of human civilization on other planets
Research the most innovative, solution-oriented and effective social systems, models, technologies, products and services on the planet.
- Systems / Models / Technologies / Products / Services
Provide tools, resources, classes, media, workshops and educational events to share and disseminate
the knowledge, wisdom and information we discover during our research.
- Tools / Resources / Classes / Media / Workshops / Events / Festivals
Connecting innovative people, products, services, ideas and organizations from all around the world to activate and implement collaborative local solutions.
- Education Centers / Ecovillage Development / Urban Planning Methodologies / Case Studies / Demonstration Sites
5 Step Methodology
1: IDENTIFY (harming factors)
Identify systems and/or actions that are harming the environment or promoting social injustice & develop strategies to stop harmful practices.
2: DISCOVER (existing solutions)
Discover existing tools, technologies, systems, practices and solutions that are already being implemented to solve global challenges.
3: Connect (and collaborate)
Connect people, organizations, systems and technologies to collaboratively develop best practices and maximize the impact, scale and reach of solutions.
4: CREATE (new solutions)
Create new regenerative models, systems and solutions with whole-systems design methodologies that can be scaled and replicated globally.
5: IMPLEMENT (demonstration projects)
Bring together the best practices, technologies and solutions and ground them into real world implementation
of demonstration projects and regenerative community development.
Current Research Initiatives & Educational Programs
This 12 month program has been created for anyone that has a desire to live a more regenerative and healthy lifestyle. We provide ecologically mindful steps of action, information and resources that empower participants to make educated daily choices that support the health of our local communities and planet as a whole. The immersion allows us to learn in-depth about the current lifestyle behaviors of many people and how their actions are effecting the environment around them. One of the 1st steps we ask participants to complete is to calculate their ecological footprint and learn how many planets it would take so sustain their current lifestyle. Through our one on one consultations with participants we learn about their daily habits and have the opportunity to observe the types of social and psychological conditioning that need to be overcome in order to inspire positive and lasting behavior change. Our hope is that through the cultivation of a holistic and ecologically integrated worldview our participants will begin to understand the importance of taking care of our environment. We have participants calculate their ecological footprint at the beginning and end of the immersion so they can tangibly see how their lifestyle choices and modifications are positively impacting and effecting the world around them. This also allows us to gather empirical data to support further research and educational curriculum development.
We are currently establishing a think-tank in San Diego, CA with local universities and professionals focused on innovative urban planning methodologies and regenerative community development. Via the Earth 2.0 Research Project we are designing and developing a Regenerative Community Blueprint that can be scaled and replicated to provide solutions to many of the social and environmental concerns we are facing on the planet today.

Research Trips & Educational Adventures
Research teams spends 2-6 weeks in each featured educational location identifying and documenting the most effective systems and models being implemented. We create inspiring content from each research trip to share with the world via our interactive educational platform.
Provide educational adventures for people to visit these locations, connect with nature, learn about the systems and directly experience these inspiring, innovative and ecologically mindful ways of living. (We collaborate with Wanderfoot and ReGenerate on these adventures)
