Planting the Seeds for an Abundant Planet

Money makes the world go ’round. It is the fundamental fuel for our human production. Yet we also realize that the way we have organized money causes many of the challenges we face today. How can we reshape and repurpose money such that it will serve a world in which humans and the planet thrive?

How can we apply that wisdom to enable everyone to live and thrive in globally regenerative cultures and societies?

It is clear that a broader, more interconnected, and integrative approach to development is not only asked for but is on its way. We now have a unique opportunity to unite these impulses into a worthy planetary response adequate to the scale of the opportunity.

This is an invitation to re-imagine the very foundations of an artificially fragmented global society and thus embrace systemic change, applying new ways of being that can enable us to course correct, in ways that are not limited by geopolitics but shaped by a shared sense of responsibility towards the biosphere as a whole.

Bio

Franz Josef Allmayer is a universal citizen with cultural roots in Austria and Guatemala. These contrasting yet complementary perspectives allowed him to question existing cultural paradigms built on scarcity from an early age. Dedication to the fields of innovation and global development has enabled Franz to gather transdisciplinary experience working with international organizations, governments, the private sector, NGOs, and academia. This process allowed him to recognize pervading patterns and embrace a whole-systems approach to development that effectively provides value towards the entire system. Recognizing the need to unite fragmented efforts towards a co-creative development process that effectively addresses the challenges of today, inspires Franz to create tools, processes, and on-the-ground collaborations to serve the development of bio-regional economies of abundance. He serves as a co-creator at Integrity Earth, a digital venture cooperative with seat in Liechtenstein, SEEDS, a financial ecosystem and digital currency designed to facilitate and empower the regenerative renaissance, and Hypha, a human-centered DAO building the tools to facilitate humanity’s transition to a globally regenerative and thriving civilization. In his playtime, you can find Franz integrating ancient-future technologies and weaving together a growing network of more than 500 regenerative organizations. He is passionate about seeding fractal circles at a local, national, and bioregional level, interconnecting to form a decentralized network for peer-to-peer exchanges, leveraging the tools of cooperation and coordination powered by the Seeds cooperative financial ecosystem. By joining together the plethora of initiatives, movements, new forms of enterprise, and lifestyle experiments encompassing all aspects of life, he enjoys contributing to the shaping of an integrated impulse for genuine transformation, giving form to a planetary-scale network of regenerative hubs — all of which align around a shared vision for change.
