Transformations of Reality
An exploration to create big, bold transformations for a regenerative future.

The energy transition, cellular agriculture, abolishing inequitable hierarchies and creating community-led organizations through DAOs, combining AI with IoT to monitor climate change—are just parts of the first stage in the necessary evolution. Led by transformations in social systems, such as new economies, industries, and revenue models, driven by people and society.

This brief window of opportunity is the moment for big, bold transformations. We explored actions and new models needed to secure a future where we can all thrive. 

120 beautiful determined souls gathered in the Marvelous City to envision, build, and celebrate a sustainable future. Rio de Janeiro is well known for its beauty, a juxtaposition of breathtaking environment with a rapidly growing metropolis, and vibrant culture. But it is also experiencing a widening income disparity. 

As a nation, Brazil’s current administration continues to pass catastrophic environmental policies and human rights violations against indigenous people. 

Brazil is home to 60% of the Amazon forest--a vital regulator of climate change, and 212.6 million people.

Since 2008, deforestation of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil has surged to its highest level since 2008. From 2010 through 2019, its Amazon basin emitted 16.6bn tonnes of CO2, while drawing down only 13.9bn tonnes. 

How can we create true impact to the scale needed to tackle these types of issues? Together we set out to answer this question.

We introduced Future Quest DAO, our web3 impact fund and accelerator which is set to launch later this year. It caters to entrepreneurs actively creating solutions related to climate change, and incentivizes collective action at scale. 

At least 10 Quests were formed, including:

EARTHDAYAPP BOT

A Twitter bot which checks companies Net Zero plans. The first campaign in series that endeavors to create transparency and support the transition to Net Zero. 

SURINAME

Utilizing the bio-economy of standing forests in Suriname to halt deforestation. 

RVRS DAO

The first partnership in what will become a coalition of DAOs tackling climate change through their unique models but unified to create a larger, stronger web3 community for action.
