Video transcript: "And one of the reasons why I think regeneration is an important concept is because we talk about decolonization a lot, but decolonization means to remove something. I don't disagree with the idea that we need to remove perhaps toxic ways of being. But I think in that removal you must also make a suggestion of what to replace with. So it's not enough to just decolonize, it's not enough to just take away. It also means instantiating or practicing things that replace the current practices. And in that, I think that is a model of regeneration. It's not that we don't know how to live in balance with the Earth, we have always known how to live in balance with the Earth; it's that we need to encourage that balance to start to take over our systems as we move into the future. And that needs to be a guiding principle when we create our economic systems, our social systems, our academic systems, our energy systems.
Every day, people are working to advance society. In their neighborhoods, in their region or around the world. They all aim to achieve the greatest possible social impact.
But what exactly is social impact? How can it be measured? Or even planned?
This website sheds light on these matters – to help you do a better job of doing good. Step by step. Everything here is barrier-free, free of charge, and there is no need to register.

The Solar Biennale, an initiative of solar designers Marjan van Aubel and Pauline van Dongen, counterbalances the prevailing technological and economic viewpoints on solar energy. For seven weeks, the biennale focuses on the human angle: a solar-powered world goes beyond scientific research and uniform solar panels, after all. Cultural practices and place-specific energy needs also determine how the post-carbon future will develop.
In “Marx’s Theory of Metabolic Rift” (1999), I argued that the widespread view on the left that Marx had adopted a Promethean (extreme productivist) view of the human domination of nature—and hence had failed to perceive the natural limits to production and ecological contradictions in general, giving them at most only marginal attention—was contradicted by his theory of the metabolic rift, which played a key role in his overall analysis.
