Between the pandemic and our current political climate, there’s certainly been a lot going on this last year. We hope you forgive us for being a little behind! We’ve been doing a lot of work at Regenesis, and we’re excited to share the progress we’ve made as we continue pushing forward for real change.
Do you want to be a part of that change? You can still participate in our survey, or share your story with us at Regenesis Reno. Click here to find out more.
What Makes Reno Special
Regenesis Reno CEO and President Gordon Gossage shared what makes Reno special in an op-ed for the Reno Gazette Journal. He also spoke about regenerative design with This Is Reno.
These articles introduced regenerative design as a concept to Western Nevada citizens and jump-started a community conversation. Learn more about regenerative design on our website. If you want to join the conversation, don’t hesitate to reach out! Shoot us an email to see how you can participate. And remember, sharing our content always helps us out!
People and Place
These two articles sparked interest in our People and Place survey, where initial results found that 61% of people do not think that Western Nevada is growing the way they would like it to, and 63% feel as if they don’t have a voice in how Western Nevada develops.
Additionally, 82% would like to participate in more community development projects between now and 2030. Does that sound like you? Learn more about how you can participate here. Let’s co-create the community we want to see. (Take the survey here)
Giving With Care
During the holiday season, we shared the importance of regenerative giving on our Facebook page, featuring Grant Denton of the Karma Box Project. Donating food and other items is important, especially for those who need it most, but it can unintentionally contribute to waste and trash in the area. Check out the full video to see how you can help others and our environment.
Western Nevada Voices
“Everyone has a story about the river.”
Speaking of Grant, we chatted with him last year about the unsheltered community at Brodhead Park and the Nexus Riverhood. Denton, who overcame drug addiction and homelessness himself, now works with community members to help others get the resources they need to thrive in our city. Read his full story here.
