the flow of values for a regenerative abundant society

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

why

THE CHALLENGE

There seems to be a disconnection between what most people consider to be the deeper values of life and the values that drive our economic system today.

Could we integrate efforts for a more distributive and creative system?

Could we connect life values and economy?
“Don’t wait for economic growth to reduce inequality—because it won’t. Instead, create an economy that is distributive by design.”
- Kate Raworth

Rui Nunes
Regenerative Systems Designer
ruinunes@valueflow.pt
My focus is to design and promote sustainable and equitable systems between the Biosphere and the Technosphere.
From an early age, questions like, "Why do elephants have trunks?" or, "How trees grow that tall?", have been part of my restlessness to understand more about the world. Becoming a designer was just a consequence of this endless curiosity. My connection to nature comes from those times, and I am happy to have combined my passions in connecting Design with Nature, finding solutions that work positively for both. With a Masters degree in Industrial Design, followed by a path in permaculture and regenerative agriculture, I interpret the landscape and ecological systems so that they can evolve in harmony with human activity.
