The Regeneration Magazine highlights creatives, thinkers, artists, and entrepreneurs who are making waves in the environmental movement and changing the conversation about climate change. The publication offers something that traditional media outlets do not when it comes to covering the climate crisis: hope.
The biannual magazine, available in digital or print, showcases the good news when it comes to climate change, namely the work of real people doing real work right now to solve the climate crisis. The publication fills a dearth of inspiring and informative content on climate change.
While politicians, interest groups, corporations, and entire countries clash and drag their feet on climate change mitigation, lesser-known individuals are on the ground right now finding and working towards solutions. Their stories provide context, humanity, and tangibility to climate change, a problem that for many feels foreign, confusing, and not of their concern.
Exclusive profiles and interviews of leaders and entrepreneurs incorporating ecology into their projects and businesses serve as The Regeneration’s literary backbone. These pieces provide readers with the knowledge, inspiration, and tools needed to take action themselves. Additional creative content such as art, poetry, and photography offers an intellectual reprieve from the daily onslaught of negative and dramatic climate change coverage.
By reframing climate change as an opportunity for positive social change, this social enterprise will not only give the environmental movement a voice but will inspire its readers to join as well.
Issue No. 4 of The Regeneration Magazine was published December 2018. Issue No. 5 is currently in development.
The Regeneration Magazine is created by a small dedicated team of creatives, writers, and activists. We work with a talented team of collaborators and contributors to create each volume of The Regeneration.

Drawing the connections between the largest movement on Earth.
From businesses to nonprofits and small personal passion projects, we're here because we share a mutual love for planet Earth.
Showcasing contributions that drive meaningful conversation.
These are inspired by positive change, resiliency and innovation, not fearmongering.
Promoting the commonly forgotten connection between social justice and environmental sustainability.
The goal of this movement is to improve the quality of life for all living things.
Believing that sales figures are not the only measurement of success.
Therefore, we don't pursue growth for growth's sake, but only if all of these values can be upheld.
Acknowledging the evolution of the economy away from free market capitalism.
We need to showcase the businesses that are trying to achieve a true triple bottom line. These organizations are at the forefront of the next economic movement, and the more we can learn from them, the better we can adapt their models to solve social and environmental problems.
Practicing what we preach and taking great efforts to minimize our environmental footprint.
We use recycled materials, plant a tree for each physical copy sold, optimize our supply chain and do not pulp unsold copies. Additionally, we only accept support from organizations that align with The Regeneration's values.
