Bioregions—A Company Structured by Nature
Conservation planning, ecological restoration and regenerative design must reflect both the natural processes and the influence of human activity on the landscape in order to be successful. That’s why our offices aren’t defined by political boundaries, but instead by bioregions—areas that share common physical and ecological attributes as well as human communities. This structure allows us to address local communities’ shared values and concerns, and focus on specific local ecological and biophysical processes. This kind of in-depth expertise enables us to fit the solution to the site.
We recognize that bioregions are not isolated. Certain ecological processes and laws of nature are applicable everywhere. So we collaborate. And as we learn from one another, you gain the collective knowledge and experience of all of our bioregion offices.

British writer and philosopher John Thackara believes changes in the global society and economy now allow people to address environmental problems at a “bio-regional” scale. http://dirt.asla.org/2015/11/16/the-importance-of-a-bio-regional-approach
James Benard Quilligan, in Kosmos, Journal for Global Transformation, states that, “the bioregional economy offers an opportunity for genuine accountability in our patterns of consumption and restoration of resources, reconnecting us with the consequences of our decisions.” http://www.kosmosjournal.org/article/human-watershed-the-emerging-politics-of-bioregional-democracy/
