We’re very excited to announce that we’ve now relaunched Regen Melbourne and are beginning our next phase of work, together.

, complete with new branding and some beautiful illustrations. After so much work from so many people and partners, we’re thrilled to get to this point!
Our journey began during the second COVID-19 lockdown in Melbourne, in July 2020. A small group of interested organisations and individuals quickly became a larger group and a 9 month community-led research process began. This work utilised Doughnut Economics and the City Portrait process and explored our collective vision for a regenerative Melbourne. The process included participatory workshops, leadership interviews, roundtables and countless hours of data analysis, and the result was our foundational report Towards a Regenerative Melbourne
, released in April 2021.
We would love you to check out our new website
and let us know what you think. On the site you’ll see how we’ve organised our work around four areas:
Projects: we are creating opportunities for Melburnians to start projects in their local neighbourhoods, as well as contributing to major projects for our city that demonstrate what regeneration and systems change is all about.
Research: we are bringing our network together with Melbourne’s research institutions, aiming to accelerate the translation of knowledge into action, and action into knowledge. This will include our City Portrait work!
Storytelling: we are co-creating opportunities to tell a different story of Melbourne, as we slowly emerge from this monumental economic disruption.
Events & Gatherings: we have organised many forums and opportunities to contribute to both our strategy as a network and the projects that are emerging.
What happens next is up to all of us.
