What a year!

As 2022 is rapidly coming closer, we want to take a little pause and reflect upon 2021.


What a year! Amidst all the doom & gloom that have surrounded us on a quasi-permanent basis, we are proud and happy to have witnessed the creation of an organisation that inspires hope. Hope for a food system that goes beyond sustainability: a regenerative food system that produces food (be it on land or at sea) in ways that work in harmony with the natural world around us, and has positive effects on our communities, economy, and environment.


Regeneration Mauritius is preparing to welcome its first members in 2022. However, we cannot leave 2021 behind us without saying "Thank You!" to those who believe in our mission, to those who signed up to join us as Infrastructure Partners, and to those who have supported and helped us in any way.


It would not have been possible without you!

Agroforestry in Mauritius: can we create a collective action?

Several Infrastructure Partners in Regeneration Mauritius have shown interest in learning more about Agroforestry and, in particular, how this land-use system can be implemented in Mauritius.


Regeneration Mauritius (RM) wishes to fuel this interest by organising an arena around agroforestry.

An RM arena is a series of workshops where we focus on one particular subject/issue in the food system. We bring people together to collectively identify the challenges or blockages that keep the subject/issue from moving forward, and reflect on the first steps that are needed to unblock the situation.

An RM arena is geared towards action. It is about getting the right people around the table, those who have an invested interest and those who have the necessary expertise, to then work together on the ideation of viable projects and their funding.


A first workshop on Agroforestry was held on October 14th where the participants, through the presentations of various guest speakers, learned what agroforestry is, and the potential and benefits this land-use system has to offer (you can (re)watch the first workshop on our YouTube channel here).


The workshop ended with participants discussing in breakout rooms around 2 questions:


  1. What will it take for an arena on Agroforestry to succeed / have real impact?

  2. What kind of pilot projects / experiments would we like to see come out of the arena in 2022? And in 2026?


The first workshop showed that there is an appetite for an RM arena on agroforestry. We are excited to now proceed with the second workshop that will take place on December 2nd, from 2.30 to 4.30 pm (Mauritius time: GMT+4).


During this second workshop, you will:

  • Receive a summary of the input received during the first workshop

  • Hear a guest speaker share their experience on an existing initiative

  • Listen to a short presentation of 3 possible project ideas that are actionable, collective and create movement

  • Actively participate in a workshop where you will go into the break-out room of your choice to discuss further. There will be three breakout rooms: one for each project idea.

  • Take part in deciding if we should build and fund an ongoing RM arena on Agroforestry


The workshop is relevant for:

  • Smallholder farmers

  • Land owners

  • Agripreneurs

  • Nurseries (plants/trees)

  • Training institutions

  • Academia

  • Policy makers

  • Funding agencies (AFD, FAO, UNDP, embassies)


Please use this form to register.

The second (follow-up) workshop on Agroforestry has been moved to a new date and time: Thursday 2 December 2021 from 2.30 to 4.30 pm (Mauritian time, GMT+4).

Although we were looking forward to meeting face-to-face this time, due to the current health situation and uncertainty around possible new limiting measures for gatherings, we have decided to stick to conducting the workshop online.

More details about the program and how to register to follow soon. Meanwhile, please save the date!!

Workshop Agroforestry: how can we implement this land-use system in Mauritius?

Agroforestry is the intentional integration of trees and shrubs into crop and animal farming systems, aiming to achieve a more ecologically diverse and socially productive output from the land than is possible through conventional agriculture.

Several Infrastructure Partners in Regeneration Mauritius have shown interest in learning more about Agroforestry and, in particular, how this land-use system can be implemented in Mauritius.

Regeneration Mauritius wishes to fuel this interest by organising an arena around agroforestry, starting with two workshops in the coming months: Thursday 14 October and Thursday 18 November 2021.

We will hear from national and international experts, look into some of the initiatives that are already underway and most importantly, explore possible pilot projects and initiatives in Mauritius.

During the first workshop on October 14th, we will seek to:

  • learn more about the opportunities of agroforestry in a Mauritian context

  • explore interest from key players to engage in collective projects to develop, test and demonstrate solutions within Agroforestry in Mauritius

  • get input on a potential ambitious goal for agroforestry in Mauritius.

The workshop is relevant for:

  • Smallholder farmers

  • Land owners

  • Agripreneurs

  • Academia

  • Policy makers

  • Funding agencies (AFD, FAO, UNDP, key embassies)

The event is free. To register fill out the registration form.

The journey continues! A big thank you to everyone who attended our third open event at Ferney Falaise Rouge on March 5th. It was great to hear from Jean Marc at Ferney Agri-Hub, and Corine and Bradley, two of the agripreneurs there. We loved the discussions that followed the presentations and are more confident than ever that Regeneration Mauritius can bring value to us all.

For many of you who reside in Mauritius the current national lock down is undoubtedly challenging. Let us hope we can meet physically again soon.

In the meantime we have decided to host an open online event on March 24th at 2pm (Mauritian time, GMT+4). Please help us spread the word and feel free to invite people in your network (including diaspora). Please see below for more information.

In April we are aiming to open a formal application procedure for those of you who are ready to join Regeneration Mauritius as partners. In the weeks ahead we are using input and feedback from the open events and numerous meetings to create a robust and transparent governance structure, that will be presented as part of this procedure.

Thanks to people like you, who are ready to create better and more sustainable foods systems, Regeneration Mauritius is gathering speed.

Our second event at the Hive, Pierrefonds delivered a set of fresh insights and inputs, and numerous meetings, e-mails and phone calls from a diverse group of people are telling us that we are moving in the right direction.

The core working group is doing its best to keep up with everything, but must admit that there are a few e-mails with ideas and input that we have not been able to respond to yet. We are therefore very glad to see that many of you are "applying" to become part of the volunteer group. We will in the coming days reach out to this group and ask for help on a series of tasks.

Last week 25 of you attended our first “Regenerators unite!” event at Farmcity. We were truly touched to see participants from all corners of the island; many of you travelled for 1+ hours to listen and share your thoughts and ideas with us. Their presence and valuable input truly made our day and confirmed that together we can turn Regeneration Mauritius into a vehicle of change and impact.

As you know, “we” are a small group of people from different sectors and backgrounds, who have come together to take part in building Regeneration Mauritius. However, we believe that we will only succeed if the collective grows and many more people will join us.

As such, during the coming weeks we will continue to organise a series of open events to present our ideas, and receive feedback for our 2021/2020 strategy and action plan.

For those of you who joined us last week, we say thank you and we hope to see you at the coming events as well.
