Naresh Giangrande reviews Designing Regenerative Cultures

Designing Regenerative Cultures is a tour de force of current regenerative environmental design. Daniel Wahl takes us through the elements of regenerative design that every system designer or system disruptor will need to face and presents this material in a coherent way which enables the reader to easily access the elements of regenerative design.

Daniel is very aware of and references the inner aspect of transformational technologies and places these at the heart of the change we need to make. He notes again and again how regenerative cultures are cooperative, focussed on the most important questions of life, and asks- or even demands -of its practitioners that they answer their inner most questions of meaning and purpose in their own lives.

As a facilitator of Gaia Education’s Design for sustainability, Economic Design Dimension (of which Daniel Wahl was an author), I have heard several participants mention Daniel Wahl’s book as their inspiration for doing this work and something that has helped them to find a more meaningful and purposeful life.
