We've been working on an ecosystem map to help identify partners and opportunities in the regenerative space. (Note, that it is focused on "agriculture" and you may see a bias towards agriculture projects in upcoming editions of "The Wave".) Here's a sample of the structure we're using:
It is exciting to see the variety of organizations that have already dug into this topic and the networking opportunities being offered. Check the links below for examples.
Dedicated to building a global network of farmers, scientists, businesses, activists, educators, journalists, governments and consumers who will promote and put into practice regenerative agriculture and land-use practices.
Food production already has the largest environmental impact globally of any human activity, but growing net demand means this will need to double by 2015. If this is to happen sustainably, more will have to be grown on less land and using less water.
Connect financial resources to farms and Good Food businesses; grow local procurement capacity; engage local school districts; provide a forum to discuss local, statewide, and national food policy; and educate the public about the importance and impact of Good Food.
Exploring areas of agreement and disagreement among agricultural and natural/organic companies.

And, in closing
We are very early in the process of defining what it means to build a regenerative economy. While the terminology will continue to evolve, we're convinced the ideas are directionally correct. Now we are studying, testing, plotting, and building interest, support, and resources.
Thus this newsletter, which will come out about weekly with brief observations and links to related materials exploring innovation and the regenerative economy. With effort, and a bit of luck, we hope support for these concepts becomes a wave sweeping the world!
