How might we use change as an opportunity for the new story?
This is the guiding call of Green ReLeaf. Our work is grounded on community inclusive design for resilience and regeneration.
Green Releaf envisions thriving community ecosystems practicing and showcasing regenerative solutions in the face of climate change and other radical transitions. Guided by regenerative design and solutions, we inspire, empower, and model the many benefits of whole systems to support resilience and regeneration in communities through education, empowerment, and earth care.
We started by journeying with community leaders to respond, adapt to, and prevent emergencies or crises using ecovillage and permaculture design. We see them as the best responders and supporters of other affected communities, because we believe the people who have also survived loss and displacement hold keys to the wisdom of resilience that can support those who are undergoing the same.
Our work has also evolved into supporting ecosystems of regeneration across different sectors as an ecosystem builder to help activate and catalyze solutions for regenerative development in the Philippines through our Re:Source Regeneration Labs and our Regenerative Transitions and Development Program.
