MVI is an open innovation ecosystem - a real-world laboratory for research, education, entrepreneurship and new living - on sustainability transitions and regenerative design for a more resilient and just society

DSC08289-1024x683

Let's re-think and re-design how we want to live now and in the future. Resilient, regenerative, blending local traditions, regional resources, and global openness.

“Design has the leverage to address complex challenges of global scale with place-based inclusive responses at the intersection of ecology, anthropology, and systemic innovation.

"We weave bridges and build synergies between people, projects, ecosystems, and economies, between theory and practice - with the common goal to create net-positive impact."
