    • 14 Oct 2014

    • EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc. (225 Schilling Circle, Hunt Valley, MD 21031)
    • 35
    As we are inspired by nature’s brilliance, we look to Regenerative Design to integrate human and natural systems to create thriving and vibrant living cities. Regenerative Design is the process oriented systems approach by which we can reverse the damage to the biosphere and create the basis for self-renewing systems beyond individual projects and their sites.
    Join nationally recognized experts Bill Reed, Jose Alminaña and John Boecker in an interactive workshop which will focus on defining the concepts of Regenerative Design and practical ways to integrate these concepts into the design process.

    This workshop will focus on:

    • Introduction opportunities to intentionally expand sustainability and regeneration work beyond a project and its site
    • Using Trajectory of Ecological Design and Levels of Work (stabilize, operate, maintain, improve, regenerate) frameworks to outline the nature of project opportunities and project "role" with exercises and case studies
    • Practical ways to think and engage work using a regenerative approach- attendee projects will be discussed
