Mangroves are important. 200 million people around the globe rely on them both for food, and for protection from typhoons & hurricanes. They are considered among the planet’s most important habitats and can help mitigate the impacts of climate change because of their capacity to store large amounts of organic carbon — the soils they create are incredibly carbon rich. There is high potential for reforestation - both to sequester carbon, and to improve the wellbeing of rural, coastal communities.
We believe Regenerative Finance and Web3 can be the bridge.
Please join Web3 and ReFi leaders, earth data experts, mangrove experts, and trans-disciplinary innovators to explore how we can protect and accelerate mangrove reforestation.
Regenerative Finance-Mangrove Collaboration Challenge via imagination platform MURAL.
In this facilitated event you'll learn about the significant challenges faced by mangrove initiatives from a cross section of people with first hand experience including,
- Arne Fjørtoft, Thor Heyerdahl Climate Park
- Dominic Wodehouse, IUCN
- Eline Sorensen, Great Carribean Barrier Reef
- Sebastian Gärtner, Greenstand.org
- Sergey Ivliev, VlinderClimate
- Neal Spackman, Regenerative Resources Co
Then we'll break into small groups to apply innovations with both new and existing solutions to address these challenges. Participants may represent DAO’s, for profit enterprises, and individual domain experts.
After the event, teams with the most loved and promising ideas will have the opportunity to work with first-class designers to upgrade the fidelity of their concepts which will be shared in conversations with notable investors and influencers.
These sessions will be further produced into segments to showcase brilliant minds working independently and in collaboration to address pressing issues of the day related to social, economic and ecological health and wellbeing. Distribution will arranged by Better Worlds and Nature Tech Studios in the coming months.

We believe that the digital revolution is transforming the very nature of the way we live. Our mission is to help understand how to best utilize its latest manifestation, Web3, grounded in intelligent interactivity and related decentralized technologies, to build a better world. We believe in creating a collaborative, inclusive and sustainable community to explore the innovative potential of Web3 to contribute to achieving the UN’s Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) Goals.
Building Better Worlds is a communication and community building platform comprising weekly podcasts, engaging international conferences and hack-a-thons to encourage and support the development of Web3 ESG solutions. Our programs celebrate voices from every continent to forge a shared and abundant future.
As web3 and the for-profit corporate sector moves into the ESG space our intention is to spotlight important voices and host conversations that shed light and foster collaboration towards achieving shared ESG goals. There is a wide gap between the emergent Web3 world and real-world ESG applications that needs to be bridged if we are to build viable solutions to solve the climate crisis and other challenging economic and social issues.
We will spotlight leaders working towards a better future to a broad audience including cultural leaders, impact investors, climate tech, and sustainability leaders in both startups and enterprise organizations
