Want to learn about ReFi? Join us for this evening event of talks, discussions and sustainably-sourced catering.
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!
Future Leap offers a spacious, covid-compliant event space with MHVR air conditioning units which take out old air and bring new air in. We also have reduced our capacity so you can be mindful of each other’s space.
