“Our long-run prosperity and our very survival both depend on nothing less than this once-in-the-history-of-civilization transformation to a regenerative civilization based on a holistic worldview.” — John Fullerton Regenerative Capitalism
This provides humanity an non-violent and gentle way to opt-into healthier systems and transition into a new (and regenerative) economic paradigm.
“The destiny of nations depends on how they nourish themselves.” — Jean Brillat-Savarin, Food Philosopher
“It is the low-quality toxic food that we are regularly consuming that is preventing us from reaching our own personal potential. Just as it’s our collective food systems that are preventing humanity from reaching our collective potential. If we transform what we eat and how we cultivate it, we’ll transform our entire society.” — SEEDS White Deck
SEEDS is designed to finance, reward and facilitate the creation of a regenerative economy — by rewiring the incentives built into our current economies.
“Now there is money for all the projects that are required to heal our planet, but aren’t necessarily profitable. Replanting native forests (with no intention to cut them down), making our rivers drinkable again, growing food forests in our cities to give away free food…” — SEEDS White Deck
Citizens in SEEDS decide what and who gets funding; from the local food movement to the regenerative energy and housing industries and anything else the movement decides.
SEEDS is a tool gifted to humanity to aid our transition to a healthier global civilization.
SEEDS aligns financial incentives with regenerative behaviors and offers a financial justification for businesses to adopt regenerative practices.
This heavily biases the rewards towards organisations that are doing the most good for the world.
This encourages people to support more regenerative organisations as they earn more rewards.
Seeds is better than cash. No fees! Rewards for you and the causes you care about when you spend it. This creates a positive incentive to use peer-to-peer local food platforms over paying in cash!
SEEDS provides revenue for the teams behind these applications, so they can be rewarded for serving the movement without needing to charge fees, sell data, advertise or any other common exploit.
From replanting native forests and making rivers drinkable again to setting up community food forests and restoring the commons — anything is possible.
…SEEDS grows while regenerating it.
SEEDS subsidizes the transition from degenerative agriculture (industrial & petrochemical based) to regenerative agriculture (permaculture and local).
These funds are to finance and support the entire regenerative movement from regenerative housing and energy to food and soil production education and beyond.
If the rewards were for use, not just purchase, then companies can earn more when they make things that people will actually use and need, not just buy.
Further, this has the added effect of rewarding the creation of a sharing economy.
Humanity could end world hunger 18 times over, using just the subsidies given to oil and gas.
Making Seeds a world’s first “better than free” currency.
The only thing standing in the way of a regenerative civilization is our collective beliefs and actions.
