California is faced with unprecedented challenges: climate change, social inequity, and an acute housing affordability crisis. Prioritizing cross-sector collaboration as we reimagine the way homes and neighborhoods are built will enable us to address these interconnected challenges while also advancing equity, community health, and ecological well-being.
Network for Change
To facilitate new ways of thinking, Build It Green convenes stakeholders tackling challenges around housing in California. By enabling collaboration across silos, we can collectively start to envision the regenerative housing ecosystem we want to see—one that meets the interconnected needs of individuals, communities, and the environment.
Amplifying Voices. Elevating Places.
As we work together to build regenerative homes and neighborhoods, there are countless people and places we can look to for inspiration. In sharing their stories, we aim to spark conversation, inspire others, and show what becomes possible when the needs and desires of individuals, communities, and the environment are interwoven priorities.
Resources & Webinars
We aim for all of the resources we provide to be credible and accessible. We offer educational resources that contextualize what it means to work regeneratively, and provide practical applications for approaches to build restorative homes and neighborhoods.
Hear from Regenesis Group, leaders in the regenerative design and development space, about going beyond sustainability to restore and revitalize the places we live.
