The UK's first ReFi Spring event - we aim to connect the Crypto, Climate and ReFi scenes in Bristol, the South West, and beyond…

ReFi (Regenerative Finance) is a rapidly growing ecosystem of people, ideas, and organisations working towards a regenerative world order. New markets and initiatives are emerging across natural capital, carbon, clean energy, food & agriculture, the circular economy and more… There is boundless opportunity to be a part of this emergent movement.

Keen to connect with other locals in the space? Come along to the Future Leap co-working space (Gloucester Road, BS7 8AA) on December 6th for an evening of interesting talks, debates, and discussions. Delicious sustainably-sourced sandwiches and salads will also be provided - huge thank you to @Toucan Protocol for helping to sponsor this!
