ReFi Roundup #47: ReFi Spring Season 2 & ReFi Villages 🛖🌿🌐
ReFi Spring Season 2 is off and away with a grants pool of $45,000 to support events all over the world! + the launch of ReFi Villages and, as always, the top news and events from the frontlines of crypto and climate this week. Enjoy :)
Happy 2023 Regens, Hereward here from ReFi Spring & Cash Upton here from The Block Explorer Podcast 👋
We're pleased to be coming into this next year working in this exciting and growing community, and what better way to start than to let you know about the launch of ReFi Spring Season 2. The aim is to accelerate the growth of this wonderful movement in a pluralistic and global manner, ensuring that at it's very roots Regenerative Finance is inclusive and ensures engagement from a broad spectrum of communities, cultures and perspectives.
Let's get into it...
ReFi Spring Season 2 Launch! 🎉
A new year and a new season of ReFi Spring to enable the continued exploration and growth of the Regenerative Finance movement worldwide.
ReFi Spring Season 2 is launched! 🚀
Today we at ReFi Spring are excited to launch our grants pool of $45,000 to support 30 ReFi events across the globe! A huge thanks to Climate Collective for their continued support of the ReFi movement.
With this grant pool, we hope to support the diverse events that are popping up around the world, engaging new audiences in the emerging conversations surrounding digital environmental assets, mass-coordination tools, carbon and eco credit markets, money legos and the many other aspects that are beginning to describe this regenerative financial system.
ReFi Spring will also be partnering with ReFiDAO to launch an Events Guild with 6 weeks of upskilling sessions and community calls to empower the growing network of community builders in the movement.
The Event Guild will be running from February 13th to March 24th, with entrance to the Guild reserved for applications received before February 3rd, so if you are keen to join the Guild, make sure to apply in January!

Beyond the Grant Pool and Events Guild
In addition to the Grant Pool and Events Guild, the ReFi Spring team is also working on many other projects to accelerate the growth of this movement.
A few hesdline initiatives to keep an eye out for:
- Spanish and Portuguese Language educational sessions for ReFi community builders (follow along on Twitter for updates on this)
- Support ReFibySouth in the establishment of ReFi Ambassadors in non-English speaking countries
- Release an introduction to ReFi Video Course (Sign up here to be notified)
All in all, an exciting 2023 awaits. It's a pleasure and a privilege to help this wonderful community evolve and grow, collectively we are building the technological and cultural stack to make climate impact at scale as we navigate the complex web of crises facing humanity.
