Sarah Queblatin is a regenerative design strategist facilitating inclusive ecosystem leadership through whole systems thinking and awareness based systems change. She weaves 15 years of experiences in peace building, cultural heritage conservation, environmental education, and humanitarian assistance.
Sarah is passionate about transforming the narrative of Disaster Risk Reduction or DRR, into that of Designing for Resilience and Regeneration for communities affected by disasters, displacement, and unsustainable development. She does this as co-founder of Green Releaf Initiative in the Philippines, as member of Permaculture for Refugees, and Re-Alliance. She designs enabling ecosystems of collaboration through innovation labs and learning journeys through Re:Source Regeneration Labs with Green Releaf, ReGEN Nations with the Global Ecovillage Network Oceania and Asia, and the 4 Returns Labs with Commonland.
Sarah holds a merit diploma in Permaculture from the Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute and an advanced permaculture certificate from Aranya Agriculture Alternatives and Guilda Permaculture. With a background in ecopsychology and transformative artmaking, she integrates a trauma-informed understanding of resilience in her work.
Her current passion project, Kalikhasan: Living Story Landscapes, weaves traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) and permaculture using the arts and culture in designing places of remembrance, resilience, and regeneration in climate and conflict vulnerable communities.
Sarah is also an artist, using creativity as a pathway for personal and collective transformation.
