The restoration economy

Storm Cunningham

The restoration economy. In this episode Judith Germain speaks to Storm Cunningham about the restoration economy. Restorative development undoes the damage caused in the world.

Storm has transitioned from a hippy, to a green beret to an urban revitalisation regeneration activist. The restorative economy is worth 2 Trillion dollars and there are many good jobs available in this marketplace. Quality of life for the community and the world increases and we extend the life of this planet (like the Evergreen restoration).

Storm explains why restoration projects (like regenerating cities) fail 90% of the time and what can be done about this. He shares the needs for having a good strategic process.

This is a great conversation on revitalisation and what can be done to make it work and why a ‘no risk’ approach will fail.
