Inaugural Regenerate Now masterclass

Friday 27 March, 2020 – AM session: 9am – 1pm; PM session: 1.30pm – 4.30pm

The Women’s Pioneer Hall, Ellen Melville Centre, Auckland

Organizers’ description:

Join decision-makers, enablers and facilitators of our city’s transformation to gain a deeper understanding of how land-based regenerative principles can accelerate our transition to being climate-change-ready.

For Auckland to be prepared, we need systems change spanning food production, water management, waste management, urban planning, community services and more. Gathering stakeholders from across these areas in a Learn Together format will help enable holistic decision-making to maximise efficiency and amplify resilience outcomes.

This masterclass, led by Daniel Schuurman (Director of Biologix, Key Mentor for the UFA, and Trustee of FTLOB) and Sarah Smuts-Kennedy (Vision Holder of FTLOB and the UFA), is the start of a collaboration between Healthy Waters, For the Love of Bees (FTLOB) and the Urban Farmers’ Alliance (UFA) to prepare for and support the changes required for mitigating climate change. It is the start of a wider programme to achieve complete system transformational change, beginning with a series of sessions focusing on water health outcomes and climate change resilience.

Please RSVP for the whole day or the morning session only by Wednesday, 25 March

Regenerate Now acknowledges that each participant will come with their own knowledge, which will vary. This inaugural masterclass is designed to bring everyone up to speed so that we can continue this series by diving deeper into each principle, with the intention of having a core team in Council and across Auckland well-versed in regenerative thinking, so that we are in a good position to help our city use its resources effectively and cost-efficiently while increasing productivity from all sectors.

Prior to the event, we invite you to submit specific questions or areas of learning relevant to your interest and work area. Please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone else you know would be interested.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Ngā mihi nui,

The teams at Healthy Waters and For the Love of Bees
