Future Quest

This summer we started building Future Quest, an ecosystem that makes it easy, enjoyable, and rewarding for people to take action on climate change.

Some outtakes from just the latest gatherings at WebSummit and COP27.

Climate Opportunity

Maintaining the current course is a difficult choice for humanity. With projected 1.2 billion refugees, 33% of all species extinct, ravaging heat waves, hurricanes and war, our nearterm future is not a welcoming place. We stand at the doorstep of this reality, and we are not advancing fast enough in solving the problem.

Enter: ReFi

Simultaneously, a new ecosystem of web3 climate tech organizations is rising — known collectively as “ReFi” or Regeneration Finance. ReFi represents an economic evolution in both mindset and technology that can enable the rapid scaling of much-needed climate action.

Threat: Winter Is Here

The current macroeconomic situation threatens many young, highly innovative, promising projects. We are now facing a global financial recession, chaos in financial markets, and a “crypto winter,” which altogether means it is harder than ever to raise for web3 tech solutions to climate change.

Helping Through The Winter

If these projects fail, we could be missing out on an entire wave of innovation needed to accelerate the progress toward a regenerative future.
