MA Ecological Design Thinking, Schumacher College, Cohort 2019–2020 (more on the course here)

Daniel Wahl’s reading list for ‘MA in Ecological Design Thinking’ at Schumacher College

Sessions on ‘Designing Regenerative Cultures’

For the last three days I have had the pleasure of spending time with a wonderfully diverse and engaged group of students from Japan, Germany, Portugal, Brazil, Belgium, the Netherlands, Scotland, the USA, England, India and Korea. I am always in the dilemma that there is much more to share with them than I could possibly fit into 15 hours of teaching time.

So this is a “little” ;-) reading and resource list — focused on my own writing and the themes I covered — which I put together for the students that might also serve other people out there who are interested in joining the reGeneration rising.

Enjoy! Just read what intrigues you, not need to read it all!

Regenerative Cultures:

Expanding the concept of design:

Systemic Biomimicry:

Meta-design:

Resilience, Panarchy and the Adaptive Cycle:

Salutogenic (Health-generating) Design:

Design for Planetary Health & Regeneration:

Scale-linking Design:

Systemic implementation of the SDGs in a regenerative way:

Links to more webinars and podcasts:

Two links to the event I went to immediately after, which unfortunately meant I had cut my teaching time on the MA from four days to three days this year:

… and since I talked about my mentors Seaton Baxter, John Todd and David Orr a lot, here a few more links:

and the interview I mentioned from 2006:

Wishing the students on the MA in Ecological Design Thinking a wonderful time at Schumacher College. May your year there be as transformative and life changing for you, as my time on the MSc in Holistic Science at the college in 2001 to 2002 was for me.

ReGeneration Rising!
