Reimagined Capitalism for People and Planet
Net Impact's Virtual Event Series
Throughout this connected series, we will utilize targeted programs, events, and strategic initiatives to harness the power of business as a force for good, to hasten a changing narrative in the direction of regenerative principles, in place of the acceptance of degenerative ones.

Join us in conversations and opportunities to learn and apply regenerative principles in business, social innovation, and our way of living to consider what we value, how we work, and what change we are working to enact.

Net impact is excited to launch our 2021-2022 event series, "The Regenerative Economy" on Tuesday, August 31, at 9:30 am PST / 12:30 pm EST.

Join us for conversation, connection, and practice about how we can create regenerative shifts. In a world thick with challenges, the possibility of a regenerative economy - one that recognizes that people, planetary resources, and systems are interdependent - is reason for optimism. In particular, "Green Swans" - innovations that deliver exponential progress in the form of economic, social, and environmental wealth creation will be one focus of this initial conversation. The interactive event will guide you in discovering what is important and valuable questions to ask as you consider your own ideas and actions to impact a regenerative world.
