About this session

Leading major metropolitan areas, universities, and corporations have adopted significant emissions-reduction goals. Although the commitments have clear objectives, the pathways to achieving them are not so straightforward. This session focuses on the campus scale, showing how they can be transformed into regenerative solutions that can meet climate goals and move beyond them to help drawdown greenhouse gas emissions.


  • Understand how to design built environments like ecosystems.
  • Experience resource flow identifications and interactions that underpins permaculture design methodology.
  • Learn how invisible structures—delving into the sociology of value-based decisions and harnessing emotional intelligence—can create a regenerative future through infrastructure where collaboration through diverse perspectives and empathy creates policy and planning solutions that would not otherwise be possible and are, as a result, much greater for citizens and the environment.
  • Demonstrate and provide tools to show that going all electric is achievable not by esoteric theory, but by involving all stakeholders at every stage of design such as operations and maintenance personnel and by using methodologies from all fields such as permaculture design.
