Regen Toronto works to educate, engage and inspire citizens to act on the known and proven solutions to the climate crisis. Through projects and partnerships, we collaborate with people and groups across the GTA and beyond with a sense of optimism and agency.
Embracing nature as the source of life and wellbeing is the key. Actions to remove carbon emissions make a thriving future possible. Together we can create a flourishing, regenerative world, with a climate, watershed and ecosystem that is healthy for the children of all species for generations to come.
RegenTO is happy to collaborate on Sunday afternoon on a screening of “The Erie Situation,” an eye-opening film about toxic algae blooms in our Great Lakes watershed. Then be inspired by the knowledge and passion of five great panelists, learn more about their programs of regeneration, and how you can act for positive change!
Learn about solutions that are already at work in our local communities to offset the climate crisis in our bioregion. It takes all of us. Six key areas are listed on the home page. Want to showcase your organization’s contributions to regeneration? We’re starting to list local group efforts on our Solutions pages, starting with these six sectors.
"Regeneration puts life at the center of every action and decision. It applies to all of
life - grasslands, farms, insects, forests, fish, wetlands, coastlands, and oceans - and
it applies equally to family, communities, cities, schools, religion, commerce, & governments. And most spectacularly to climate."

How do we get enough energy-efficient and affordable housing for our growing population? Existing buildings can be retrofitted with heat pumps and better insulation using innovative low-cost financing. New housing can be built using green and recycled building materials under revised building codes.
How do we generate, store, and transport affordable energy without burning fossil fuels? Solar and wind are cheaper than gas and nuclear in many places around the world, and hydrogen produced from renewable sources has promise. The most efficient carbon reduction is to reduce demand.
How do we get around and transport the things we need? We can start with electrifying mobility, expanding affordable public transit, encouraging efficient shipping, and supporting safe and enjoyable walking and cycling.
How do we surround ourselves with less stuff? We need to reduce the amount of non-essentials we produce, buy, sell and store, while shifting to a “less is more” lifestyle. Scaling up the use of repurposed and recycled materials is key, as is increasing access to resources like tool libraries and repair cafes.
