Regens News 🗞️

Gitcoin Beta Round has started! 👀

We are thrilled to announce that our grant is approved and live for this Gitcoin Beta Round!

You can check out the details of our grant here, where we outline everything we've built since the last round and what we're planning next.

One important note! We've moved our grant from the Climate round to the Community & Education round.

With a track record of bringing together thinkers and doers from various sectors, Regens Unite wants to continue creating intentional spaces for learning, collaboration, and unification to drive forward global solutions. The new Community & Education round felt like a better fit for our focus.

With our application submitted, we are eager to see what opportunities and collaborations may arise from this beta round. Stay tuned for updates on our progress and the impact of the Gitcoin Grants program on the regenerative movement!

Featured on the GreenPill Podcast 🎧

We are absolutely over the moon to have had team members Xavier Damman and Leen Schelfhout speak with Kevin Owocki on the Green Pill podcast!

In this 50-minute chat, they discuss the mission and origin of Regens Unite, what it means to 'regen' and to host a regenerative gathering, how the newly launched Regens Unite Handbook enables this movement, and more.

If you haven't heard it yet, give it a listen - it's a good one! 🔥

Regens Unite Community Video 🌱

We're making a little video to help spread the vibes of the Regens Unite community!

If you've been to one of our gatherings, we warmly invite you to send us a short video recording sharing a memory, learning, or a feeling you had during that event. It can be as short as a single sentence, or you can tell us a full story of up to 2 minutes.

All of your video clips will be used to create a community-driven montage to inspire more regens to join this movement. We also plan to use it to raise awareness for regen projects in this Gitcoin round, so send us your video clips over the next couple of days!

The more voices in this mix, the better. 💚

Past Events 👀

Blissness Retreat

"Definitely worth the money! I really believe in this retreat formula and the team leading it. To me it felt like a game changer - even if you've already started looking for a way to become an entrepreneur, like I did. With this you’ll tap into your own resourcefulness, and that of the group. And you can renew your connection with nature in a beautiful environment.
I’d say: jump in open-minded and swim and experience how it benefits you as an entrepreneur and a human being." - Attendee

Regens Unite recently hosted an inspiring retreat called the Blissness Regen Retreat, which explored the values that drive our businesses and how they impact the world around us. The retreat was held in an ecovillage in the South of Belgium, surrounded by nature, and provided a perfect backdrop for participants to disconnect from the outside world and reconnect with themselves.

By bringing together like-minded individuals and fostering a sense of community, we created a space for people to work towards a more regenerative future.

The Turn: Tend Spring 2023

On April 22nd we celebrated Earth Day. There were some incredible events taking place all over the world! 🌎

Our very own Jeremy Akers and Laurence hosted an event called The Tend which took place across Amsterdam, Brussels, and Berlin. To take part, a group of Regens in each city created seed bombs, dispersed them, and then played a regenerative card game!

It was super successful and a fun day for family and friends to get involved.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next Tend, or get it started in your own city! 👀 🌱
