#27 – Web3 & the Regenerative Renaissance

27 Web3 & the Regenerative Renaissance

In this podcast we unfold:

  • We unpack Web3 and Blockchain technology and ask ourselves what meaningful endeavors do we see on the horizon that can unlock systemic change?
  • When it comes to Web3 exploding – what should we put up as a discerning radar? What are the features that make us find the golden needles in the haystack?
  • What promises of Web3 might be phony? And on the other hand what endeavors could be underrated?
  • Unpacking the regenerative renaissance; It seems like the word sustainability got hijacked and the next term is regeneration or the regenerative economy. What real-world examples are exemplifying at the core of their business model to not only do less harm but actually regenerate, i.e. soil, biodiversity, etc?
  • Where are Web3 and the regenerative renaissance unlocking their maximum potential together? Where do we see examples where we move from ownership to stewardship of the Earth? What are new types of value exchange beyond the monetary exchange, i.e. DAOs and DHOs?
  • We explore global exchange systems via interlinked hyperlocal communities that strengthen each other. 
  • What types of currencies – beyond the term being simply understood as monetary exchange systems are on the horizon, like mutual credit currencies, real asset-backed currencies

#9 Real Estate as a Driver of Change

The title seems almost a contradiction as we see the housing and affordability crisis mainly driven by extractive real estate business models in many metropolitan areas around the globe.
But this is not carved in stone. We can truly sense into the soul of a property and feel into what that space within its given surrounding really wants to serve for. And create the circumstances that enable a broad variety of stakeholders to cocreate a place full of abundance including the arts and take sustainability really to the next level.

#8 Facilitating large scale cultural change (#2)

How can we facilitate the many chrysalis cells for the emerging, regenerative paradigm that are so far often not connected, when already aligning groups is quite challenging? We truly need groups of groups that share a common North Star, all while they still pursue their own goals, obviously. This is an undertaking that has never been done before on a global scale. But we know leaps in history are possible, from the abolition of slavery, the women’s liberations movement, the end of Apartheid, the fall of the Berlin wall.

#7 The Politics of Waking Up

What could be a new way to imagine politics?
In this episode we are diving deep into the weeds of Citizen Action Networks (CAN). We reflect how much of the inner worlds we all inhabit, from the trauma we hold, to the memetic center of gravities that steer our perception of reality, to the culture we need to nourish, for a “Politics of Waking Up”.
