By 2050 nearly 10-billion people will live on earth, requiring the urgent need for regenerative housing and community development. Precious water, healthy food sources and scarce arable land are already at the forefront of pressing global issues that must be addressed.
This is why Regen Villages was created. By building entirely self-sustainable villages, Regen is the vision of a new type of real estate development: one that is tech-integrated, and regenerative.
By creating neighbourhoods made up of power positive homes, renewable energy, water management, and waste-to-resource systems that are based upon on-going resiliency research, Regen aims to reduce the current burdens on local and national governments.
Future world vision
The self-sustaining village will grow all its own food. By using a mixture of techniques, including vertical farming and composting, using fish to fertilize and grow fresh produce, and an aquaponics system that produces 10x more food than land farming and 90% less water, Regen villages will make a sustainable green future a reality.
For power, the village will use a mix of geothermal, solar thermal, wind and biomass methods. Compostable waste will be used to feed animals, and non-compostable waste will be turned into power.
Regen aim to have the first test community will have 25 homes ready by 2017 in the Netherlands.
