Living Lab
An international change agency committed to protecting and renewing life on Planet Earth
Our shared dream is to shift humanity's collective story from one that is extractive and self-serving to one that is kind to one another and stewarding of planet Earth by 2030.

Together, we are planting roots for a regenerative world reflected in ourselves, our families, our organizations, society and the biosphere.

Welcome to the Age of Regeneration

Evolve or Devolve?

This is the existential question we as humans are facing and choosing through our individual and collective actions. We believe that transformational change requires both personal and systems regeneration. With firm conviction, relentless optimism, and intentional coordination, we can make this quantum leap to a healthy and harmonious world together.

Our offerings sprout in three distinct branches
Rooted in a diverse network of content experts, we work with a regenerative leadership systems model to understand context, hone purpose, chart strategy, and work collaboratively to execute on an integrative course of action. We understand the world in nested wholes and therefore our offerings are designed to enrich your own life, your organization, and your community in sync with planetary boundaries, Agenda 2030 and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
