Sustainability is not enough.  Holding the line in circumstances of declining resources, changing climate and growing populations will not lead to a thriving future.  We need to make our world better.
The next generation of thinking is ‘regeneration’, which takes a whole systems method to create abundance.
The presentation shows examples of a regenerative approach for the property and development industries, and how they are enabled by technology. They demonstrate different business models, mindsets and design and planning approaches.
Early adopters of regenerative tools and frameworks in Australia show that this approach leads to inspirational places.

Formerly a practicing architect specialising in sustainability, Kerryn Wilmot joined academia in 2012 at the Institute for Sustainable Futures UTS where she leads the Cities and Buildings research area.  Her applied research focuses on pushing practice and policy in the urban environment towards being regenerative.  Recent projects include investigating the impact of technology and new ways of working on the urban environment, climate adaption strategies for housing in urban heat island affected neighbourhoods, and scoping appropriate sustainability targets for redevelopment precincts and for the new Sydney Modern Gallery at the Art Gallery of NSW.
From 1999 Kerryn was the project leader for the pioneering and innovative 60L Green Building in Carlton, Victoria that influenced today’s commercial buildings and sustainable development tools. She was one of the first Green Star Accredited Professionals, she is an auditor for the Living Building Challenge, and is currently being trained as a LENSES facilitator.
