First, a note about our newsletters:

Fall is upon us, a time for sharing the harvest of our efforts and our gratitude for the beauty and love surrounding us, especially in times of great global conflict.

As we enter the seasons for regeneration and reflection, we are taking the time to review our energetic summer of events and plan the next steps for the coming year.

In this spirit, we've decided to change the rhythm of this newsletter from monthly to seasonal editions. 🍁 This gives our small team the necessary time to focus on the evolution of our mission, source and curate high-quality content, and regenerate in between.

As we steadily approach the year's end, we're excited to share the latest on our active fundraising opportunities, exciting new partnerships, past events and upcoming gatherings.

For day-to-day updates, follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram & Facebook, and connect with the community on Telegram.

Regens News πŸ—ž

πŸ’ž We're fundraising on Giveth & Gitcoin!

The Regens Unite core team does all of its event organizing, media production, and communications work voluntarily, and predominantly unpaid. Outside of a few small event sponsorships, Regens Unite has been entirely supported by donations so far. While we are developing a sustainable business model to change this, we need funding now to continue our work.

Until Oct 23-24th, you can support our mission through some incredibly impactful opportunities that we'd love to share below. πŸ™

With (quadratic) funding matching offered through these platforms, every donation of $1 can get matched by $20, $30, or more. That's huge for us!

πŸ‘‰ Until Oct 23: Quadratic Funding on Giveth

The innovative crowdfunding platform, Giveth, is running a quadratic funding round and we've been accepted as a participating project.

Until October 23rd, you can donate to our project on the Optimism network and your donation will get matched through the magic of quadratic funding. $25,000 in matching funds will be distributed to participating projects after the round ends.

The more individual donations we receive, the bigger the matching - so every bit of support increases the impact for our project!

πŸ‘‰ Until Oct 24: Quadratic Funding on Gitcoin

Two of our core team members, Corinna and Guil, have been accepted to participate in the current Gitcoin Citizens round for their work to help expose new fundraising opportunities through in-person events and soon, digital webinars! $22,000 in matching funds will be distributed to participating citizens after the round ends.

Until Oct 24th, you can donate to their grants and increase their chances to receive greater matching funds! Check out their grants here:

What's next? We're gearing up for Gitcoin Grants Round 19, coming soon in November 2023.

Follow the latest updates on Twitter, and stay tuned for more details very soon.

Past Events πŸ‘€

What a turnout at Regens Unite Berlin! The second annual edition took place alongside Berlin Blockchain Week, Climate & Transport Week, and Art Week on Sept 15th-16th. ✨

Leaders and builders from platform cooperatives, regenerative agriculture, climate activism, personal development, regenerative finance (ReFi), decentralized organizations (DAOs), indigenous art & culture, and decentralized science (DeSci) met on the ground for two days of provocative exchanges, learnings, music & food.

🌟 Check out the full recap thread here!

The goal was to create a unique space for new connections to emerge between diverse communities, around the shared interest of regeneration. Over 50 session holders facilitated a diverse range of workshops and interactive panels.

We experimented with new ways of exchanging value, such as a community currency in the form of RGN tokens enabled by Citizen Wallet, as well as a Regen Lottery inviting participants to contribute regenerative offerings to one another! πŸ’š

We greatly appreciate the diversity of backgrounds across the 200 participants who showed up with open minds, ready to contribute and engage.

Thank you to our incredibly supportive community, all of our volunteers, our host and friends at Moos in Berlin, our partners, and the Regens Unite team. We are all crew. 🫢

🍿 Youtube Spotlight: What's next for the Climate Movements?

In this talk, Gail Bradbrook, cofounder of Extinction Rebellion, talks about what’s next for the climate movements. She envisions a future where communities reclaim their land, build local economies, prioritize mental well-being, and protect their resources. She advocates for local communities to link with others globally to address shared challenges (rooted locally, globally connected πŸ‘€) and she calls for a shift from domination to cooperation, from destruction to regeneration, and from despair to hope. 🌻
