Timeline and the 3 Horizons

The 3 Horizons

One map we use is the "3 Horizons" where we have simultaneous aims for the short, medium, and long term.


  • 1st Horizon: A citizen-governed financial system
  • 2nd Horizon: A citizen-governed & regenerative economic system
  • 3rd Horizon: A Regenerative Civilization
What follows is a partial list of accomplishments, infrastructure, and tools that the SEEDS community has created. For a look into the tools available to our movement beyond SEEDS, see Ecosystem Maps.
