[Re]Generation is an initiative aimed at building awareness of the need for and advantages of [re]localised, networked systems of production and consumption. The initiative involved a partnership between the McCaughey Centre and the Victorian Eco-Innovation Lab (VEIL) focused on:
- exploring the value of distributed systems as a response to urgent environmental, social and economic challenges – particularly those relating to climate change;
- engaging multi-disciplinary practitioners, theorists, researchers, designers and activists to consider projects and visions for sustainable futures enabled by distributed systems; and
- identifying priorities for future action: research; innovation; the design of products services and built environments; policy development.
