What is Success?

A regenerative culture

A Regenerative culture is one that is actively regenerating the ecosystems we inhabit.

Regenerating our ecologies looks like:

  • Being able to drink wild water again! Actively and consciously enhancing the quality of our wild waters with targeted planting and restoration projects.

  • Growing the fertility of our soils, so that they grow more fertile and nutritional each year instead of less.

  • Increasing the quality of our air, seeking to replace the toxic fumes of tailpipes and smokestacks with the wild smells of meadows and forests.

  • Local food activation festivals where we gather to set up community gardens, food forests and other direct restoration projects.

  • Regenerating our ecologies would create environments that foster more diversity of life on our planet (reversing the extinction acceleration trend). For example, evidence is mounting that shows that the incredible diversity and life of the amazon happened precisely because of the humans stewarding those lands. Nature was made more abundant and fertile (ability to give life) because of the human inhabitants.

  • And so much more joy to be had as we heal together.

Regenerating our socials systems looks like:

  • Providing free (and paid) educational opportunities to reskill and support those seeking to join the transition and open-sourcing everything we can to remove participation barriers.

  • Creating economic systems that are directly governed by consenting participants. Where the "freedom to exit" is high and barriers to opt-into and out-of various social and economic systems are a basic human right.

  • Co-create economic systems that deliberately redistribute collective wealth and incentives for the wellbeing of people, planet and shared prosperity. Where the members of these systems govern directly what an economic system ought to prioritize. So, instead of an extreme minority using subsidies, government contracts, etc to enrich an even more extreme minority of society; we can instead have transparent, fraud resistant, and directly democratic financial systems.

  • etc.

We get what we measure

In order to build an economic system that automatically rewards and incentivizes regenerative actions, we need to improve how we measure what regeneration actually is.

QUEST Help improve our measurement capacity and tools by adding new functionality to track meaningful metrics regarding regeneration. Build alliances with groups tracking these insights so that we have better information to evolve our economic systems with (e.g. to get better at directly compensating regenerative actions).

Regional and Village Dashboards

We measure globally (the dashboard above) and we measure regionally (below dashboards).

What we measure regionally can be more nuanced and culturally specific than what we measure globally.

Regionally is where we can apply frameworks like Meta Integral's MetaImpact model, Kate Raworth's Doughnut Economics or others to track our impact.

We can then use these models to measure and coordinate our resources locally towards subsidizing, financing, and encouraging a wide diversity of regenerative impact.

SEEDS Regions

This also create a generative positive feedback loop. As groups/ villages/ regions/ projects/ businesses who are the most regenerative with the funds they receive, will receive more funding to do more regeneration with.
