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.

Spiritual renewal;
Renewal of a biological system after injury as a normal process.

S-O-C-I-E-T-Y


An enduring and cooperating social group working together.

A deep, group-based learning program. 

Skills workshops focused on solutions prototyping.

An event inspiring and celebrating climate action.

RECONCILIATION

We are guided by the 94 calls to action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and those of our indigenous Elders, allies and co-workers in striving for reconciliation with the people of the Sisikaitsitapi, Îyarhe Nakoda, Danit'ada, Métis, Nehiyawok, Salteaux*, and other Indigenous nations as we live and work on Treaties 6, 7 and 8 lands.

*described by settlers as the Blackfoot Confederacy, Stoney Nakoda, Dene, Cree, and Sauteaux Nations

ACCESSIBILITY

Regen's programs are made possible by our generous donors and funders. We endeavour to remove all barriers to your participation.

 

Our programs operate on a sliding scale fee model to maximize its accessibility. We offer bursaries for transportation, child care, or other as requested.

Contact us to discuss your individual situation and needs.

The Regeneration Learning Society places the practices of reconciliation, equity, inclusion and accountability at the centre of all our work and in every gathering. We strive to be allies who are lead by the wisdom and experiences of the communities and people we support, collaborate and partner with. We use antioppression and decolonization practices to inform and guide our relationships and work.
