re:build is an impact-driven organization with a mission to inspire and embolden a global movement of re:builders.
We co-create magical, authentic, participatory, and multi-sensory events and experiences that inspire and motivate our community to take action toward building a more regenerative future.
We call them re:builders and our mission is to embolden this movement through participatory events that enable knowledge sharing, deep collaboration, friendship and joy.
Our Values & Principles
By design and simultaneously emergent from the community we sense these are a set of common values and principles re:builders across the world embody.
Renewal, restoration and growth of all life
Give care and support
At every moment, for everything we’ve been gifted
When something breaks we do something to fix it
Celebration is serious business
We dream big with openness to emergent ideas
We belong to the Earth
Leave a better trace
We leave each place and living being we interact with in a better shape than we found it.
Together we are stronger. If you want to go far, go together.
Co-creation and Collaboration
Learning by doing
As children learn to walk by lifting one foot at the time, falling and getting up to do it again better, we are also willing to fail and by failing, move forward.
Whole systems thinking
Creating positive loops in all interactions. An awareness of how everything is circular and interconnected. The waste of one system is food for another.
Transitioning from ownership to stewardship
Recognising the limitations of capitalism and consumerism. Designing economic structures that incentivise long term stewardship rather than private ownership and short term profit.

Regeneration is no longer an option. We need action. We need to start building the places, businesses, and communities that will enable us to live and work in harmony with nature, and each other.
To achieve this at a meaningful scale, we need to support the re:builders who are going to drive this movement forward. This is why re:build was created - to enable knowledge sharing, deep collaboration, and friendship so that we can not only optimize our collective impact but also have a lot of fun along the way.
If you want to be inspired by the leading edge of whats happening in building for a better future, and be set onto a trajectory of actual action, the re:build event is the place to be.

The re:build gathering provided a wonderful home for like-minded people, with unique and inspiring regenerative stories. We all hold a piece of the puzzle of building the new earth we dream of, and at here we could share, meet, dance and find a supportive network of new friends. The whole experience was beautifully orchestrated, from cosy yurts to delicious food and many a great balance of workshops.
Thank you re:build!
