The LENSES (Living Environments in Natural, Social, and Economic Systems) Overview Guide outlines an actionable approach to using the LENSES Framework. It provides the tools and resources you need to lead your organization, community, or project in creating thriving Living Environments. It begins with an overview of the LENSES Framework, which guides dialogue toward regenerative solutions that redefine sustainability successes. The Overview Guide includes facilitation models and templates that you can apply to your own projects to create measurable, real world solutions through regeneration.

This Overview Guide is intended to support sustainability professionals – current or aspiring – who want to:

  • learn more about creating Living Environments;
  • facilitate team, organizational, or community dialogue toward regenerative solutions; and/or
  • implement regenerative practices within projects, programs, and organizations.

This guide has been published by the Center for Living Environments and Regeneration, in collaboration with IBE.
