Community Engagement: Foster pride of place by involving local residents in decision-making processes and honor their knowledge and encourage their participation and leadership in sustainability and regeneration initiatives.

Responsible Infrastructure: Use of clean and sustainable materials responsible technologies, such as renewable energy sources, watershed management, green building design and materials, among others..

Natural Resource Management: Implement strategies for responsible management of natural resources, including water, landscapes and wildlife habitats, to ensure their long-term viability and ecosystem services.

Circular Economy: Support the growth of local businesses that prioritize local employment, sustainability and regeneration, such as eco-tourism, renewable energy production, waste minimization and re-use, and value-added agricultural products.

Education and Training: Provide training programs and educational opportunities focused on sustainable and regenerative practices, entrepreneurship, and green technologies to equip residents with the skills needed for a thriving local economy.

Regenerative Agriculture: Agricultural practices that enhance soil health, biodiversity, water conservation, and create more diverse food sources. This helps ensure a more sustainable food production and revitalizes rural landscapes.

Monitoring and Evaluation: Establish mechanisms for monitoring and reporting on progress towards sustainability goals and evaluating the effectiveness of regeneration projects, allowing for adaptive management and continuous improvement.
