Socio-economic and agroecological challenges & opportunities
“The coronavirus pandemic is not only a health crisis. It is also an economic crisis and will develop into a financial and social crisis.” Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA)
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is causing widespread concern and hardship for many families and businesses across the globe. Despite the extraordinary challenges we are facing, there is reason for hope. We can use the crisis as a window of opportunity to regenerate the earth and her people. By evolving ourselves and our communities, restoring our landscapes, growing healthy food and transitioning towards a circular economy.
The ecological transition requires a broad range of services and innovations. Which opens a window of opportunity for private and public organizations, as well as for regenerative start-ups. However, the development of economic solutions should also consider non-monetary driving forces, such as cultivating emotional balance and organizational resilience.
This is our general perspective on the current situation. If you think it’s high time to co-develop your own regenerative strategy, contact us today.
The interdisciplinary blog and exchange platform is in development. Stay tuned! Here we will present and discuss publications and news, related to regenerative development & design.
