The Regeneration Learning Society (Regen) exists to build the capacity of people, communities, and organizations to learn, engage and lead in creating a socially just, low carbon future for all Albertans.
We do this through educational programming, peer-to-peer learning, and the practice of design, innovation, and reconciliation.
Regen offers three program pathways to participate in creating a socially just, low carbon future for all.
