Pathways Forum: Daniel Christian Wahl & Jonathan Rose on Regenerative Systems Design

Join us on Friday, June 3rd at 10:00 a.m. ET in conversation with Daniel Christian Wahl, author of Designing Regenerative Cultures, teacher at Schumacher College, and creator of the Design for Sustainability course at Gaia Education. Daniel and Garrison Institute co-founder Jonathan F.P. Rose will discuss systems design in support of planetary health and regeneration. This is the first of our Pathways to Planetary Health (PPH) Forum Summer 2022 series and focuses on the Regenerative Economics pathway. Regenerative Economics calls for inclusive systems and institutions to support regenerative civilization. Regenerative Economics is one necessary component of planetary health, but not singularly sufficient. Learn about all four pathways and other PPH events here.

This live webinar will be conducted on Zoom at 10:00 a.m. ET on Friday, June 3, 2022. The webinar link will be emailed to participants within twenty-four hours of registration. Please email us at events@garrisoninstitute.org with questions.

Hons., Univ. of Edinburgh), Holistic Science (MSc.,Schumacher College), and Natural Design (PhD., Univ. of Dundee). He was the director of Findhorn College between 2007 and 2010, is a member of the International Futures Forum, and is on several advisory councils. Daniel lives on Majorca where he works locally and internationally as a consultant, educator and activist. Daniel has worked closely with Gaia Education since 2007 and contributed to the development of their Design for Sustainability online course and co-authored the current versions of all four dimensions of the curriculum. Daniel teaches regularly on Ecological Design Thinking and Regenerative Economics at Schumacher College. His 2016 book ‘Designing Regenerative Cultures’ has quickly gained international acclaim. It has been published now in English, Brazilian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Italian editions with the German version arriving in mid-2022. In 2021 the Royal Society for Arts, Manufacture and Commerce – founded in 1754 – awarded Daniel with the Bicentenary Medal for “an outstanding and demonstrable contribution, through … design practice, towards an equitable and regenerative world.”

Jonathan F.P. Rose’s business, public policy, and not-for-profit work focus on creating a more environmentally, socially, and economically responsible world.
