REGENERATIVE DEVELOPMENT & AGROFORESTRY

The shared history of humans, animals, plants and other living things is at a critical juncture: sustainable development encourages people to consume present resources in ways that do not prevent future generations from enjoying them in the same way. It therefore does not call into question the standard of living of the richest societies, nor the hope for all other societies to access this same self-destructive lifestyle. The loss of biodiversity is the greatest threat to our planet: we are already in the red zone, an area where scientists are no longer able to define the consequences on the Earth's balance. 

The current "stock" of the planet's resources has become dangerously insufficient for the application of the principles of sustainable development to create a virtuous circle. It is therefore essential to change the paradigm, to rethink our model of society by fully integrating the environmental dimension.

We are nature, We are Natural Pact

Looking to the future, Natural Pact fully applies the principles of regenerative development, as presented by Kate Raworth, an English economist, pioneer of the regenerative movement and partner of the Hub. She offers us a visual representation of this new paradigm in "The Donut Theory".

Regenerative development offers an innovative perspective on development and society as a whole. It provides a framework for rethinking all the functions of a society (social, economic, political, cultural, etc.) in order to create systems that make it possible to regenerate resources. The transition from an economy that predates natural resources beyond global boundaries to an economy that is circular and regenerates ecosystems is therefore vital for the survival of humanity.

Forests are disappearing because our market economy fails to recognize the multiple values of primary forests. One hectare of forest is lost every second!

"I believe that the maturity of the 21st century will be to understand that growth is only one phase of life. And try to imagine what an economy that has finished growing and can now "prosper" can be like. Nature has been thriving for nearly 4 billion years. We would do well to take inspiration from it. »  

Kate Raworth, an English economist, researcher at the Institute for Environmental Change at Oxford University and senior associate at the Institute for Sustainable Development at Cambridge University and pioneer of the regenerative movement, provides exciting answers in her book "Doughnut Economics: Seven Ways to Think Like a 21st Century Economist".
