Regenerative Futures

Regenerative Futures

A future where humans thrive as part of the Earth’s ecology

Our aim is to bring a future with thriving social and environmental health to life.

Our relationship with the environment has profound effects on our society, but this relationship is still not deeply understood.

We see ‘regeneration’ as a way of understanding social and environmental outcomes as interconnected and part of a whole. We believe this new way of thinking can unlock better ways of organising our economy and our societies, to tackle the urgent crises that we are facing as a species.​

We're exploring what a regenerative approach can offer and how it can be brought to life.

What we're doing

We’re supporting pioneering creatives to design a better future for fashion. We're exploring our relationship with future generations, through online events covering philosophy, geology, law and arts.

We’re examining what we’re learning from the Covid-19 crisis that will help us take action against other global threats like climate change, pollution and inequality.

Make Fashion Circular

In partnership with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, we're supporting the next generation of creative talent to apply their skills to designing with circular economy principles.
