Master Regenerative Action
Integral City Meshworks is partnering with Ubiquity University (UU), the University of International Cooperation (UCI) and Green Project Management (GPM) along with a global coalition of other academic institutions, NGOs and professional organizations to launch a whole new MBA degree called a Master in Regenerative Action (MRA). At the center of this is Doughnut Economics as well as a range of other regenerative approaches to ecology, economics, politics, consciousness, and culture. The focus is on Knowledge leading to Action to regenerate our world. Business must be redesigned to regenerate economies and the larger ecosystem
This MRA jointly co-brands and co-produces undergraduate and graduate courses and programs, also available for lifelong learners and activists, in the field of Regenerative Development. This will comprise the leading theorists and practitioners in the field of Regeneration. Content is being developed by practitioners in the field working to regenerate bioregions, cities, and economies globally.
We are partnering with the Regenerative Communities Network founded in 2018. Currently, there are 15 members across 8 countries and 4 continents, a number that is expected to grow rapidly in 2021. Costa Rica already offers many sites within the country where students can come and actively learn regeneration by participating in many of the projects UCI is currently working on.
Integral City Meshworks and Populus Community Planning are convening dozens of cities worldwide and over 45 partnering organizations to join the coalition. The fact that Amsterdam Integral City of Year 2019 embraced Doughnut Economics in April 2020 has had an accelerating effect on galvanizing cities and regions globally to develop regenerative practices.
Our coalition of content providers and specialists are working together to create a global consensus around the imperative to move beyond Sustainability to Regeneration. We are linking learning about Regeneration with what activists and practitioners need on the ground for effective and informed action.
Our goal is to build a program grounded in service to bioregional development and the regeneration of cities and the entire political economy. Every sector of human society must be transformed to be regenerative.
Beyond Smart : Integral City Practices, Tools & Maps
This online course online (self-guided) introduces “practitioners” to just the basics of the Integral City model. You will learn the framework of practices, tools and maps that reveal the common patterns that impact the lives of individuals, organizations and communities within your city. This short course explores three powerful images animating Integral City systems – the integral map, the meshwork and the human hive. You will learn from your own situations and each other how the toolkit guides you beyond models for Urban Ecovillages and Traditional, Smart and Resilient Cities. The course can be taken anytime, anywhere to suit your convenience.

Beyond Resilient: Integral City Inquiry Action & Impact
This course is delivered online (anytime, anywhere as self-guided study) and live as scheduled with partner Uquiquity University . It is for “catalysts” to explore inquiry and action that inspires productive impact for reinventing today’s cities for the future. You will interact with the 4+1 Voices of the Integral City (Business, Local Government, Civil Society and Citizens, plus actors from other regional cities) to identify strategic possibilities. Integral City introduces you to new ways to think about, act in, relate to and reinvent the city as a Human Hive. Through placecaring and placemaking, we invite you to discover the unique contributions you make to its aliveness. We believe the future of cities will emerge not just from the bottom up through Smart City Technology or the top down through Resilient approaches – but from the integrated actions of the 4+1 Voices in all the cities in your eco-region, as you reinvent your Human Hives.

Beyond Complexity Online: Integral City Care Context & Capacity
This course is series of half day online trainings – delivered as agreed by participants and faculty. It is for “meshworkers” to imagine how to reframe simplicity on the other side of complexity in the Integral City – or Human Hive. You will join graduates of prior training to build on the Integral City practitioner and catalyst competencies to apply new skills to a live case study. You will look at the city through the lenses of Care, Contexting and Capacity Building. You will view the city as a complex, adaptive living innovation eco-system, where the internal and external connections amongst the 4+1 voices of the city (Citizens, Civil Society, City/Institutional Managers, Business/Innovators (and other cities) enable conditions for thriving today. You will seek to align intra-city and inter-regional collaborations through caring for people, contexting for place and capacity building for purpose. This course introduces the practices of “meshworking”, so that practitioners who work with individual organizations and catalysts who build bridges between organizations can engage with the city as a whole. (It can be delivered as a series of half-day online trainings – delivered over 3 weeks – 7 x 1/2 days). FOR MORE INFO Send Us an Email through Contact.
