100 – OVERVIEW
Regeneration and LENSES – An Overview
AIA LU’s: 1
Delivery: 60 minute local in-person or live-online presentation including activities and Q&A.
After taking this course participants will be able to:
- List the key concepts of regenerative design and development
- Define the terms regenerative design and regenerative development
- Describe the role of the LENSES Framework in regenerative development
- State how LENSES can be applied to the design process within the context of a simple 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.
This course introduces participants to the definition of regeneration, regenerative design, and regenerative development, and to the five key concepts of regenerative practice. Participants will gain a basic understanding of each of the three lenses and how they work together as a whole. Through an exploration of the framework and a simple application activity, participants will see how LENSES can be applied to a regenerative design and development process.
