Welcome & set people up for a participative co-creation session.
14:05 -14:30 Recipes for Regenerative Neighbourhoods 
Film to introduce regenerative approaches to neighbourhood development, using real life story of applying it in a living lab neighbourhood context in Bristol UK. Followed by an overview of the key ingredients for regenerative neighbourhoods.
14:30 – 14:50 Re-mixing Recipes for Regenerative Neighbourhoods 
Creative knowhow exchange process whereby participants reflect on the context where they live and/or work; share their experiences & perspectives on what makes a regenerative place, including what’s missing, & what might be possible.
14:50 – 15:15 Manifesting the Regenerative Neighbourhood 
Participants collectively decide a set of priority ingredients for their regenerative neighbourhood. Then take part in a creative movement/dance process to bring alive those ingredients. This process helps manifest theoretical ideas into embodied connections, experiences & emotions.
