About Designing Cities for All: RE generation
Over the past two years of Designing Cities for All (DCFA), we’ve learned about exclusion by design and the (re)design of inclusive cities. Along the journey, a certain question kept popping up: what exactly does ‘for all’ entail? After focusing mostly on the ‘who’ over the past two years, DCFA is rebooting as Designing Cities for All: RE-generation . This way around, the series is also incorporating the ‘what’ by looking through the fresh lens of regenerative design . This emerging field might very well be a promising answer to the challenges of our time, as it focuses on the design of products, services, systems and processes that lead to both social and ecological recovery and that keep the systems healthy.

A unique concept will open in the middle of Amsterdam early next year. A place where 'regenerative solutions' are developed together with the neighborhood so that you as a consumer become part of the climate solution. Paul Hawken (author of Regeneration & Drawdown) recently kicked off 'TJIKKO the Upside Club', open to the public from 18 February.
More and more cities worldwide embrace the concept of donut economics, in order to meet the needs of people without overshooting Earth’s ecological ceiling. The spiritual mother of the donut – British economist Kate Raworth – puts forward distributed design as one of the core principles of the donut.
