RegenAI Summit

We are bringing together changemakers committed to regenerating our planet & developers intent on activating AI for good.

Imagine a world where the greatest technology on the planet helps us with the deepest challenges of our communities.

The ReGenAI Summit envisions a future where we grow people and systems that are in alignment with nature.

We invite you to this intimate gathering where we will harness AI's emerging potential and our shared wisdom to nurture a world that works for all.

With a regional focus, we'll cultivate planetary transformation in three realms:

Ecological Systems: How to direct AI towards ecosystem restoration, soil regeneration, and biodiversity preservation.
Human Systems: From sustainable cities to collaborative governance, let's find new ways of organizing for collective benefit.
Individual Well-Being: Discover and demonstrate how AI can support personal purpose, mental and physical resilience, and the cultivation of a regenerative mindset.

Regeneration is the spirit of Ashland, Oregon

Ashland is at the heart of Oregon's Rogue Valley, the gateway to the Pacific Northwest. It is the midpoint between San Francisco and Portland, and also Los Angeles and Seattle. It's within a day's drive of some of the world's greatest tech and media epicenters, but far enough outside their spheres of influence to find a new perspective.

It's famous for its cultural treasures (its world-renowned Shakespeare Festival just one example), a destination for visual, musical and other performing artists. Yet it's the almost mystical qualities of its natural environment that have shaped the long tradition of indigenous and modern experimental approaches to living, working and creating together.
