ReGenerative Renaissance Orientation Episodes

Enjoy the learnings of 11 years creating in the "ReGenerative Renaissance"

What is regeneration? In 5 minutes:

For those new here and seeking a broad and nuanced understanding of what's going on (one perspective on what the "ReGenerative Renaissance" is). We highly recommend exploring the following orientation series. ReGen Civics was born out of this multi-year exploration into designing Regenerative Economic systems and a growing desire to putting the theory and tools developed over the years (explored in the video series) into practical on-the-ground application by helping launch a growing diversity of regenerative "Minimum Viable Economic System" projects. Enjoy the journey!

4 part video series details:

  • Constructed Spring 2022.
  • Exploring several open-source and free tools and technologies groups can use today to make new financial, governance, organization, and economic systems.
  • Recounting the 2011-2022 journey where 10k+ people and 400+ organizations came together to co-create a new type of economic system that's regenerative by design.

Episode 1

Explore key insights from an 11+ year journey into the Regenerative Renaissance as an ever growing number of people have come together to collectively ask:
  • How can we build the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible?
  • How can we design new economic and governance systems to coordinate the systemic regeneration and reunion with Earth?
We've been building, iterating, evolving, and testing a variety of approaches over the last 11 years that we'll explore.
We open source one of our most valuable assets, our knowledge (and tools, code, and everything else), so that other "competing" ecosystems may learn with the SEEDS ecosystem together, as our only actual competition is the degenerative economic systems we were all born into.
Our shared task is to make them obsolete by creating economic systems that are regenerative by design. SEEDS has been exploring one pathway to Regenerative Civilizations starting with permaculture, ecovillages, and regenerative food systems and moving into decentralised and regenerative financial, organization, and economic systems we take you on a journey through 11 years of learning.


Episode 2

Exploring tools designed from the ground up to help communities co-create regenerative, circular, & local economic, organizational, & governance systems on open-source and decentralized technology.
Or in other words, exploring the tools that provide the foundation to our "Minimum Viable Regenerative Civilization". We can use these tools to opt-out of the dominant and degenerative economic systems and explore creating and discovering alternatives together. OPEN SOURCE TOOLS
  • Community currencies
  • Regenerative economic and financial system tools
  • Digital and decentralised marketplaces
  • DAO - Coordination and organisation toolset (Issue tokens, badges, roles and more) though we call them DHO's - H for human - more on that later :)
  • And more


Episode 3

Exploring how we opt-into a Regenerative Economy:
  • how the tools of Ep. 2 act as a "minimum viable regenerative economy",
  • the SEEDS Economic System,
  • how the SEEDS Commons works to distribute 'working capital' to the ecosystem to scale and coordinate our regenerative projects and global transition,
  • the basics of contributing, tokens, and more,
  • and introduces the foundations of regenerative economic systems and regenerative communities.


Episode 4

Exploring the question "How can we practically coordinate the systemic regeneration of our earth?" The last 3 episodes explored our journey, tools, and basics for a "Minimum Viable Regenerative Economy".
This episode explores how can we use these tools to support our global transition to Regenerative Civilizations, Cultures, Communities and beyond. This introduces where ReGen Civics fits into the SEEDS ecosystem and how ReGen Civics has available a decentralized economic system that was custom designed specifically for the "Regenerative Renaissance".
