When is it?

The Regenerative Design Lab is a 4-week regenerative organisational design and management programme. (2023 dates are yet to be announced.)

Here’s what people have to say

The Regenerative Design Lab is a journey and cohort that all growth seeking leaders should have the opportunity to experience. Participating in the Design Lab helped me and my team to have the conversations, do the deep work and design the type of organizational context that we never would have imagined without it. Transformational!

The Regenerative Design Lab is the most impactful course I have taken all year! Highly recommend — and definitely bring a friend. This completely restructured my organisation and our impact.

Soil Centric’s team really needed this class. We had a clear sense of our work, but not of our organizational design. You guys are brilliant and I wish more organizations could benefit from regenerative design principles.

Soil Centric

The Regenerative Design Lab has been a truly powerful tool which has assisted me in developing my project further. I enjoyed the peer learning and meeting new people from different continents. There was a great atmosphere which encouraged meaningful connections, engaged learning time and good humor. The past 6 weeks has grown my confidence in the project I am responsible for and deepened my understanding in regenerative principles and the Framework.

Rachel Pretorius

The Regenerative Design Lab was an experience I would recommend to anyone who not only wants the tools for designing a project, organisation, or holistic life around regeneration, but who also wants to be inspired by others seeking a similar emergent and regenerative path. All the tools, peers, and guidance from the nRhythm staff was beyond exceptional, and I can only say amazing things about the entire process. Thank you to all my peers and to those at nRhythm. Standing ovation!

The Design Lab created the space to take both a macro and micro look into how I design my Regenerative Framework. It was incredibly valuable to take the time to develop my holistic context, and I was surprised by the growth that happened during the 6 week lab. It was wonderful to connect with an international community, from various contexts and sectors, coming together to develop regenerative systems within our organizations.
