To facilitate the practice of regenerative design and development, the US Green Building Council (USGBC) and a core team envisioned a forum, a repository of information and a framework that are capable of stimulating dialogue among a diversity of practitioners and decision-makers with different disciplinary backgrounds and viewpoints. The REGEN tool is a work in progress and intended to support any regenerative design and development process, particularly in the early planning and design stages… 
Stimulating regenerative development through community dialogue
Definitions of regenerative design, regenerative development and regenerative thinking differ, but community engagement is an integral component of these definitions. A critical aspect in
Transitioning from green to regenerative design
Green building strategies, performance goals, and associated assessment methods currently emphasize the ways and extent that buildings should mitigate global and local resource depletion and
A preliminary study on the regenerative construction project management concept for enhancing sustainability performance of the construction industry
As the world's living conditions deteriorate despite the precautions undertaken, there is need to reduce the construction industry's footprint. This paper aims to establish the principles for
A biophilic mind-set for a restorative built environment
TLDR
It is concluded that adopting biophilic principles in urban planning will lead to cities that can regenerate life and nurture end-users' health and well-being and bring forward ways to transfer human nature ties' knowledge into restorative approaches to design the built environment.
Towards the definition of new tools of design and environmental assesments performance in built environment
Sustainability applied to the built environment has been basically understood as a strategy to improve the efficiency. The evolution into ecology closer visions is becoming more intense. The paradigm
How Rating Systems Support Regenerative Change in the Built Environment
Urban development principles have evolved from sustainability, where the focus was on limiting the negative impact of urban environment, to restorative and regenerative sustainability, where positive
