WASHINGTON, D.C. – Regeneration International (RI) and Open Team have extended the deadline for The Regeneration Hub (RHub) micro-grants competition to March 31, 2017. The competition, which seeks to attract scalable and replicable regeneration projects, is called “Five Innovations for Regeneration.” RI will award micro-grants of US$1000 each to the five winning projects. The RI Steering Committee will evaluate the competition entries and announce the winners in April 2017.
Launched during the COP22 Climate Summit in Marrakech, RHub (beta) is an interactive online platform that connects project holders, individuals, funders and communities focused on regenerative agriculture and land-use projects and other related concepts that address multiple global challenges, including climate change and food security.
The RHub aims to accelerate adoption and development of scalable and replicable regenerative projects across the globe by inspiring and facilitating collaboration between project holders, individuals, funders and communities from the regenerative movement.

Regeneration International, a 501(c)(3) project of the Organic Consumers Association, is building a global network of farmers, scientists, businesses, activists, educators, journalists, governments and consumers who will promote and put into practice regenerative agriculture and land-use practices that: provide abundant, nutritious food; revive local economies; rebuild soil fertility and biodiversity; and restore climate stability by returning carbon to the soil, through the natural process of photosynthesis.
OpenTeam manages O, a global platform that catalyzes concrete collaboration on a world scale, engaging change makers with all levels of expertise and projects to mutualize their efforts and experiences in order to develop local projects (global initiatives implemented by local stakeholders). OpenTeam organizes both online and physical meetings through ScaleCamps, that foster exchange of good practices and develop the potential of projects to scale.
