Regenerative Whole Systems Design
VillageLab’s Consulting Team provides professional incubation and consulting services in project design and development for “communities of intent” through a whole systems design framework that integrates the social, ecological and economic dimensions – what we call Regenerative Whole Systems Design.
Research & Development
This Whole Systems Design framework is the basis for VillageLab’s Research, Development, Demonstration, Replication & Dissemination Program (what we lovingly call R2D3). This program is VillageLab’s larger mission with our Consulting Services being an integral first step.
