Regeneration means putting life at the center of every action and decision. It weaves together justice, climate, biodiversity, and human dignity. Regeneration creates livelihoods that bring life to people and people to life. It is work that links us to each other’s well being, that provides those in poverty with purpose and a future of dignity and respect.
