Applying LENSES for Regenerative Design and Development
Duration: 6 contact hours (one full-day in-person, or two three-hour online sessions)
Delivery: Led live in-person by a senior LENSES Faculty Member.
- After taking this course, participants will be able to:
- Discuss how to apply the key concepts of regenerative design and development, and to work from a regenerative paradigm
- Demonstrate how select LENSES Framework activities to inform the contextual assessment for a specific project
- Formulate a project-specific purpose statement that takes into account nested whole systems
- Explain the full process of applying the LENSES Framework in the context of a specific project
The LENSES (Living Environments in Natural, Social and Economic Systems) Framework is a regenerative development process and facilitation framework that augments existing design and sustainability practices. Built on the principles of healthy living systems, the LENSES Framework offers teams a fun and thought-provoking way to discover hidden potential, expand their definitions of success, and realize the potential of regenerative design and development.
In this course, participants will review the five key concepts of regeneration and the definitions of regeneration, regenerative design, and regenerative development. They will deepen their understanding of the fundamentals of regenerative development how they apply it in the context of a built environment project, organizational development or with personal endeavors. The LENSES principles, process, and application will be discussed and participants will apply key aspects of the Framework to a project of their choice. Particular focus in this course is given to activities utilizing the Flows Lens and Foundation Lenses. Case examples will be utilized to demonstrate examples of successful application and outcomes.
