About The REGENERATION TEAM for urban, rural & wild places

My life has quickly taken a MAJOR turn for the better since I joined the Regeneration Team at the Leader level. My monthly 30-minute consults with Storm Cunningham provide the guidance and contacts I need to go from stressed-out attorney to satisfying work creating policies, strategies and programs that help bring resilient prosperity to all.” - Sal Orofino, RE

Be a member of the "re" generation! The new Regeneration Team was launched in 2021 by RECONOMICS Institute. It's hosted by the institute's Executive Director, Storm CunninghamRegeneration Team supporters are people and institutions who want to create a better future for themselves by creating a better future for all.  

Via monthly videos, weekly podcasts and coaching, you'll discover quicker, easier, cheaper, more reliable paths to community revitalization and resilience. You'll build your expertise, either for immediate application to your professional or volunteer work, or to prepare you for an ideal future career. Membership puts young and old on the leading edge of community revitalization, climate resilience and nature restoration. 

Originally envisioned as ongoing education for certified Revitalization & Resilience Facilitators (RE Facilitators), we decided to make them easily accessible for everyone by putting them here on Patreon. The initial podcasts comprise audio versions of 3 books used in RE Facilitator training: The Restoration EconomyRewealth and Reconomics,  Repetition is a key to mastery, but we can't expect our graduates to repeatedly read them, so listening is key. The videos show restoration, revitalization and resilience in action, and reveal the secrets of success.

These videos and podcasts are available exclusively via Regeneration Team membership. Of course, you could become a member simply to financially support the creation of these educational resources and scholarships, even if you never use them yourself. That would be awesome!

The UN Decade On Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030)---which Storm originally proposed as a Century Of Restoration back in 2002---has just begun. As an team member, you'll learn how to design and lead successful nature restoration, regenerative agriculture, climate resilience and community revitalization initiatives. 

The opportunities are endless, because current systems of urban planning, politics, economic development, natural resources management and real estate development are seriously broken at the local and national levels. And the old "sustainable development" paradigm hasn't been making enough of an impact over the past 40 years: things are getting worse fast. 

By becoming a member (patron) of the Regeneration Team you can quickly and easily join this "re" generation...either to earn a living, or as a volunteer, out of love. And, you'll be helping us create weekly podcasts and monthly videos. In them, you'll learn how to make a real impact to create a better future...locally &/or globally.

When your team contributions total $100, you can request a free lifetime subscription to REVITALIZATION: The Journal of Economic & Environmental Resilience ( with access to its 8000+ articles, plus FREE access to the illustrated online version of the groundbreaking 2020 book, RECONOMICS: The Path To Resilient Prosperity.

Your team contributions fund scholarships offered by RECONOMICS Institute. Scholarships enable folks in economically-distressed communities around the world to get certified as Revitalization & Resilience Facilitators (RE Facilitators).

Each time your contributions total another $200, a full scholarship is created to help someone get certified. You can use one of the scholarships for yourself: normal tuition is $299, so you'd be saving $99!

While the Regeneration Team is officially an initiative of RECONOMICS Institute, it's also a personal passion project for its Executive Director, Storm Cunningham.

For two decades, mayors, governors and corporate / non-profit leaders worldwide have relied on Storm's advice to help them bring places back to life. He's been called "the world's thought leader on community revitalization and natural resource restoration" by George Ochs, the Managing Director of Real Assets at JP Morgan.

Storm knows that young folks LOVE the idea of restoring our world for a living. He has lectured at universities around the world, including in China, the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Mexico and Canada. He's also lectured at dozens of schools here in the U.S., including Harvard (where he created and led a 2-day workshop), Clemson, Ohio State, the University of Texas, the University of Virginia, etc. The lecture halls were packed in every case. But, most of the courses these students are taking are focused on old paradigms, like sustainable development.

"My generation tried to do less be less destructive," says Storm. "But we didn't do a good job of that. So, newer generations need to be about undoing harm...being restorative." Many young folks are already creating highly-rewarding careers healing our crisis-ridden world. You can too. After all, who wants to sustain this global mess?

Besides being the Executive Director of RECONOMICS Institute: The Society of Revitalization & Resilience Professionals in Washington, DC,, Storm is also the Editor of REVITALIZATION: The Journal of Economic & Environmental Resilience. A former Green Beret, Storm has since worked to be a green leader. His 3 books are globally praised by public and private leaders. You can learn more about his books and work here:

If you have any friends who want to improve their lives while improving the lives of others, please tell them about the Regeneration Team. The larger the team, the bigger the impact each of us can make, the more potential partners and opportunities you'll have, and the faster the future improves for all. The global resilient prosperity movement is calling you!

11 of 99 patrons
2021 is a "soft launch" year for the new Regeneration Team, primarily for pioneers, friends and insiders (like you). The rest of the world will hear about it in January of 2022. This allows us to build a large library of videos and podcasts before the public launch. So, you're one of the first to discover it. To thank these pioneers, the first 99 members (at any level) can join Storm---and each other---on a live Zoom call, where you can ask Storm questions. You'll be notified of the time and date shortly after we reach the goal of 99 members. Please tell your friends, and share the link on social media!
