Regenerativity arises from the relationship of the 4 Voices. As they connect in the city, they find the energy for change and in the process create a culture of regenerativity. The opportunity for regenerativity is always arising because the dynamics of the city mean the relationship between Citizens, Civic Managers, Business/Innovators and the [...]
