Hello ReFi Nation! Anna and Monty here with an update on the ReFi Annual Meeting we proposed in July and an exciting invitation for something new...
Annual Meeting Update
ReFi is currently at a pivotal juncture. Amidst challenging times, we believe there is a strong need to bring community together, and facilitate cross-sector collaboration and coordination. We need to reach beyond our bubble and build bridges with diverse industry professionals, government officials, NGO leaders, investors and activists. This was a core part of our thesis for a ReFi Annual Meeting 2023. See below 👇
This vision still stands, however, given market conditions and reduced spend for events, we have decided to adapt the Annual Meeting for this year to focus on gathering the leaders of ReFi at the pioneering regenerative village in Alentejo, Portugal from Oct 27 to 3 Nov. Here are the details👇
ReFi Week @TDF: Regenerating the Earth Together 🌱
From October 27th until November 3rd, Portugal will be host to a transformative gathering of key ReFi leaders & practitioners, both local and global. In partnership with ReFi Lisboa, Bankless DAO, Silvi Protocol, Regens Unite, and the Crypto Commons Association, the Traditional Dream Factory (TDF) and ReFi DAO are inviting you to come together with us for a week-long co-living event focused on regeneration, co-working, co-creation, community-building, and celebration.
This week will be about much more than a series of professionally facilitated workshops and activities, it’s a unique opportunity to collaboratively envision and initiate the next chapter of ReFi DAO and to craft a roadmap for implementing ReFi technologies worldwide. This week promises to be a fertile ground where creativity meets collaboration, setting the stage for a global regenerative society.
Location & Activities ✨
If you are not already familair, you will be welcomed to the Traditional Dream Factory (TDF) in Abela, Portugal— an emergent 'ReFi Village' known for its inspirational spirit and commitment to regenerating the Earth. At TDF, we will explore and partake in the world’s pioneering experiment of an entirely on-chain regenerative village! Read more below 👇
