Regen Inter-Networking
The “regenerative sector” is made up of lots of small, scrappy, widely distributed, underfunded organizations. Can we accelerate our regenerative future by helping these many organizations co-operate, co-create, and co-promote? Can we spawn an “Inter-Network” of regenerative organizations?

The Internet is tied together by a set of “protocols” that allow computers and networks to communicate (e.g., TCP/IP).  What are protocols, or "behaviors", that would help regenerative organizations connect, create, learn, share, amplify? 

RASA is working to identify and prioritize “protocols of cooperation” that might be promoted amongst the regenerative community to make the community more successful.

The protocols may include twitter lists, ad sharing, data compiling, asks & offers boards, or something new and magical. 

What do you suggest? How are you amplifying your allies? Please, let us know.

In Closing
We are early in the process of defining what it means to build a regenerative society. While the terminology will continue to evolve, we're convinced the ideas are directionally correct. We are studying, testing, plotting, and building interest, support, and resources.

Thus this newsletter, which will come out periodically with information about RASA - narrating our work - along with brief observations and links to related materials exploring innovation and the regenerative economy.

With effort, and a bit of luck, we hope support for these concepts becomes a wave sweeping the world! Check out the archive to see if this newsletter is right for you (or a friend).
