Bridging Digital Communities
Kay @geleeroyale
I run a bridge server for chats (Discord, Telegram, Riot, ...) and am actively engaging communities connected to the Ethereum space. Especially with the advent of newDAOs my services are being requested on a regular basis. Most requested at the moment is bridging between community servers on Discord (both communities get to share a room), whereas before it was mostly mirroring rooms between different protocols. Once a bridge is up, it still needs to be maintained and I regularly check that everything is in working order. I never charge for these services, but I do accept donations (all Ethereum tokens) Current list of bridged communities:GivethThe Commons StackMetagameHackalong1hiveethereum.orgbalancer.ioAragoncadCADToken EngineeringToken Engineering CommonssourcecredRaid GuildDappNodebrightIDMetafactorydOrgMaticConsensysPanvalaGitcoinYearnDAOHausKshazuDAO Book ClubMol Le ArtETHLatamShenaniganSeeing EarthBoson Protocol

Free The Food
Arthur and Devin
Street-side Syntropic . Free The Food plants street-side food systems and provides educational content to help others worldwide successfully implement these systems! Using Permaculture and Syntropic farming techniques, fruit trees, edible plants, and additional companion plants are combined to create a circular and regenerative food system. We empower people and communities around the world to plant their street-side with food!Why Street-side? . Strips of land between road and property fence lay bare and underutilized. The goal is to collaborate with landowner, gain free access, and convert these stretches of land into micro food forests. This provides the community with free food, spreads the knowledge of Syntropic farming, and saves landowner time and money.Why Syntropic? . It is one of the most successful and harmonious growing methods for rehabilitating land and growing food. Syntropic agriculture mimics the evolution of a forest and uses techniques to accelerate growth, generate biomass to build soil, and continuously remove CO2 from the air. This successional planting method is a permanent and evolving system that rebuilds ecosystems and provides food forever.We currently have 3 street-sides planted in Costa Rica with 2 more on the waiting list. We are currently seeking donations for Website Development, Videographer/Photographer, Tools, Seeds&Trees, Transportation, and Signs. We provide 100% transparency with donation allocation and use of funds. Thank you for your contributions to help heal soil, sequester carbon, and grow the decentralized food movement! Arthur & Devin syntropic@protonmail.com

Diamante Bridge Collective
Diamante Bridge Collective
The Diamante Bridge Collective (DBC) is a network of land stewards, individuals, organizations and communities located primarily within the Diamante Valley of Costa Rica, expanding to include those from the greater Southern Zone of Costa Rica, and those abroad.The DBC functions as a hub of many physical nodes, connected via global networks of shared vision and mission with the goal of restoring, preserving and consciously stewarding surrounding lands and watersheds while living harmoniously within them in alignment with our planetary values.We work together to create collective foundational agreements and a local regenerative economy that includes digital currencies for the transparent and accountable recordkeeping of our exchanges.We are building bridges between individuals, communities and organizations, local and global cultures, property owners and skilled service providers in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica who are committed to working together long term to care for our bioregion, our neighbors, and ourselves. We also serve as a bridge, and an entry portal, for individuals looking to exit the industrial consumerist lifestyle, and return to regenerative practices and community living. Operating as a diverse network, we are in a unique position to be able to direct and connect individuals to communities which will best suit their needs, interests and passions.We value the transcendence of the old model of land “ownership”, choosing instead to “steward” lands. We are in the process of creating a legal foundation for the securing of land into trust or conservation, for the benefit of future generations.We embody the ethics and principles of permaculture in our personal and communal lives, whilst supporting and inspiring one another with honesty, clarity and authentic communication. We value family and community life, seeking to create village settlements that nurture optimal human development by most effortlessly meeting everyone's needs.We value open-sourced platforms of information storage so that our story may serve as a model to be shared with other collectives and put into action. Our governance model is Sociocracy, valuing the diversity of perspectives within our collective and ensuring space for all voices during decision making processes.DBC Education and culture sharing includes:Facilitating the Living Permaculture Mentorship Program, offering skill sets in Syntropic Agroforestry, Social Permaculture, Holistic Wellness, Permaculture Design Certificates, and Growing and Preserving Food (Campaign can be found by copy and pasting this link: https://trace.giveth.io/campaign/living-permaculture-mentorship-program)Hosting and collaborating on culture exchange and skill share eventsSupporting the rebirth of balanced Earth-People cultures through Visionary storytelling and integrated Indigenous ancestral wisdom Offering scholarships for youth leaders from economically disadvantaged communities.Creating multicultural and multilingual learning environments. Current Members within the DBCDiamante Luz Centre for Regenerative LivingH.O.M.E.

Recycling Recenter Diamante Valley
Help us build a recycling center and create an Extruder Machine to transform “non-recyclable plastic” into a great building material : Wood plastic or Madera Plastica - - -Without a formal waste management system in place and limited information and options to recycle, residents of San Salvador are left to individual choices and practices; which is often in the form of illegal burning and dumping.After reaching success in creating two small scale projects for the Togethering and the local store Abues (see traces below), we are excited to expand and create a bigger recycling center for Diamante Valley.Our intention is to:● Spread awareness by educating locals on recycling, composting, reducing and...● Create recycling opportunities by receiving, storing and redirecting recyclables such as cardboard, glass, tetrapacks, aluminum and tin● Build an extruder machine so that we can locally repurpose plastics into building materials.On the following link you can see our machine being built, it will be ready in few weeks :https://youtube.com/shorts/B9enOV4-LpE?feature=shareThe great news is we have the land and local community support. Now all we need are financial contributions so that we may move forward and:Create parking for community accessibilityBuild a permanent structure to receive, store, redirect and repurpose recyclable materials.Build the extruder machine and the molds.Build a second structure to work with the extruder, the molds and cooling pool.Create and print educational materials- flyers, videos, signageStart up wages for two part-time individualsWe have goals to make this a self sustaining regenerative enterprise and will use profits from future membership and facility use fees, as well as "repurposed plastic" building supply sales. We believe our project can be an inspiration for communities and municipalities to follow. Make a financial contribution become a solution to the pollution ;)You can see the past success of the Resourcery Team at work on GivethTRACE as we have implemented two previous actions with great results: The Togethering Place Campaign, Create a Recycling Program (Phase 1, TTP) Trace, and Create a Recycling Center (Phase 2, Restaurant/Store) Trace.Our Extruder Machine being built in Perez Zeledon

Bloom Network
Bloom Network
What? Bloom Network is an international community of people and projects creating and nurturing regenerative cultures to permanence. Local Bloom hubs around the world grow participation in practices such as food security, local economies, celebrations of diversity, and art as cultural transformation. http://www.bloomnetwork.org Where and Who?There are 16 local Blooms in 7 countries on 4 continents, and we estimate there are approximately 30,000 people involved on the ground. Our participants include farmers, creatives, Indigenous leaders, and professionals who are working together in coalitions. Why?Why are we doing this? There are tens of thousands of initiatives solving major social and environmental problems, who are excluded from mainstream media and institutional finance because the way they work is naturally collaborative and polycentric. Now that Web3 is useable enough by a non-technical audience, we will implement a membership model to support grassroots organizing on an ongoing basis.MilestonesYour contributions to this project will go toward these milestones:+ Complete a "Regenerative Actions Ticker" on our homepage, to document and reward actions like planting food forests, hosting a CryptoParty, or teaching a class on restorative justice.+ Launch our "Call to Bloom" to help 100+ local Blooms get started as centers of regenerative action in their cities.+ Implement MyMeta, a profile system on Ceramic built by our friends at MetaGame, for an open, portable profiles system that can work across different websites. + Code DAO templates that local Bloom chapters can use to fund the coordination labor of actions such as regional food security, policy development, mutual aid, and startups that generate ongoing financial stability.

Urbanika and the SolarPunk awakening
Humberto Besso Oberto Huerta
Update:Thank you all who supported us here in Giveth and within GG13 too ♥. With your help we completed the payment for buying the equipment (almost 5K only for the full MoCap suit, plus an iPhone 13 for face capture and 3D scanning urban places).We even managed to have a small budget for supporting the salaries of the team. However, we have not yet raised enough for financing one episode. This is why we are participating in GG14. Please support us again, we are putting our souls and hearts into creating the first propaganda machine for the crypto-commons.Check our first teaser and share the message, please!. Now, read below some updates regarding the name, the regenerative business model, and about the curricula. Enjoy!🧐 What is Urbánika (before known as OurVerse)?A propaganda machine for the crypto-commons. Urbánika is an immersive video guide that will take the students from learning about the commons to actually co-creating and managing local urban DAOs as ways to re-imagining and regenerating their cities.Context:We believe that urban commons combined with the power of cyber-physical organizations such as DAOs and the proper token engineering will efficiently run cities. A very early empiric experiment about this was run in 2018-2019 in the city of Chetumal. The result was getting 23 people from across the government, universities, NGOs, business chambers, and citizens coming up with projects to regenerate their city. However, coordination failed due to starting from a city perspective when neighborhoods had different interests, tech interfaces were difficult to use, and the team didn't have the proper knowledge, just the will.The lesson was learned and these people have gathered again, now with greater understanding of urban commons, human coordination technologies, and matured networks of public good and crypto-commoning activists.We have come up with a storyline (check it in Spanish and English) and a plan to engage again citizens in regenerating their city. The aim is to film the training and support given to a cohort of activists and turn these videos into a film-series that facilitates others to do the same. The whole content will be opened as produced to enable the wider community to enrich it and fork it to their context. Read to the end to know our plans after finishing season 1.🤔 How are we delivering such impact?We will set up an extraordinary environment that facilitates learning through hyper-realistic virtual immersive experiences that are fun, engaging, and easy to digest. The key features of this immersive environment are:1️⃣ Video Lessons: Teachings are expressed in the form of videos. Lessons go from understanding and claiming an urban commons to managing them as a local urban DAO.2️⃣ Gammified immersion: After the lesson is presented through the main episode, the student will be able to choose which path to watch first: Capitalist or Post-Capitalist. Each path is shown through a video scenario where the consequences of implementing the technologies/methodologies of the chosen path within the local urban DAO are presented.3️⃣ IRL practice: After watching those scenarios the student will get an in-real-life challenge to solve within a time limit of three weeks.4️⃣ Recognition: When the challenge is solved, the student gets a skill badge of completion. And, like in a in game, life points are given for the contribution of taking humanity closer into becoming a regenerative species. In contrast, if the student does not solve the challenge, the life points are given to Moloch. When life points are out, the game is over.🧠 Tell me more about the training contentThe training's content is based on the book "Free, Fair, and Alive" by David Bollier and Silke Helfrich. We have divided the book into 9 episodes where Web3 tools are added, thus, introducing the use of cyber-physical coordination.The challenges within the episode start in the realm of understanding, reflecting, and becoming aware of the commoner inside each of us, then they advance into claiming, regenerating, and maintaining local public spaces as local urban DAOs that bootstrap local regenerative initiatives with the neighborhood and other local agents' support.Within each episode there are also mini-games that enable the students to consolidate the lessons. Such mini-games are for example, memory matching games, crosswords, and others.Finally, it is to clarify that all the content will be released using Creative Commons 4.0, and thus, all the episode’s resources, such as characters, scripts, 3D elements, and so on, are open to being forked and modified by other activists to fit their local contexts.Initially, Kin, the main SolarPunk character, will be focusing on Latin America and the Caribbean, however, the storyline will show in shadows other unrevealed characters that are doing the same in other parts of the world. The idea is that the Urbánika's story and challenges call people to form up a fandom. Social movements based on shared interests and fun have the power to quickly adopt new trends, which in this case is adopting regenerative and post-capitalistic lifestyles. We hope, that others can join us, create new characters and spread the word of the commons!Kin, the SolarPunk agent sent by the Galactic Federation to accelerate the transition to a regenerative and post-capitalist society.📅What is the timeline of Season 1: The SolarPunk Awakening?July, 2022. Production of first episode.August, 2022. Quality testing of first episode and of all supportive material (community server, website, supportive documentation).August-September, 2022.

A regenerative and post-capitalistic one!The above budget will enable us to produce the whole first season (10 episodes). However, the subsequent year of support to the graduated students and the planning of subsequent seasons is not included in the budget. We believe that commons and public goods should aim to be financially self-sustainable by offering alternative services that others enjoy without sacrificing free access to the main public good. It is our goal to proof that is possible and be the example of others to transition into a fruitful commons-based society.To sustain our efforts we will turn the team into a DAO and offer the following services:1️⃣ Product-placing within the story of Urbánika. A vocal expression or an artifact such as a shirt worn by a character or an item appearing within the mainframe. Either of these with the intention of mentioning a value-aligned organization that fits within Urbánika's mission and storyline.2️⃣ In-story stories. A complete VR scenario and story script paide by a value-aligned org to appear as a complementary video with the aim to exemplify a success story of how a brighter future is possible through their methodology/tech stack/approach.Our income surplus will be managed in the following way:Financially support the emergence and consolidation of urban regenerative initiatives from the graduates of the course-series (45%).Financially support universal basic income and universal basic services development at the communities of the graduates (10%).The remaining will be put in the DAO's treasury to support the DAO's purpose of reaching out billions with the knowledge and tools to facilitate our transition into a regenerative interplanetary specie.✅ Monitoring and Metrics:Ask Me Anything (AMA). Once a month after the first episode goes out we will have AMA as a direct channel of communication with the community and the interested stakeholders. Kin will be hosting a real-time transmission. At this monthly event three things are to be shared: progress on how many urban commons have emerged, FAQ that the community has dropped in contact channels, updates from the projects participating in the episodes’s challenges. After these three sections, the community will have the space for asking anything.Main success indicator: 10 urban commons created across Latin America within the time-frame of series' season one.Secondary indicators: Engament within the Mattermost channels and the video commentaries.⚖️ Legal setup & considerations for the projectThe equipment owned and content generated will be governed by its workers aka The Team through a legally recognized cyber physical org (Production Cooperative legally constituted in Chetumal, México with a digital twin as a DAO. The guild will be the main operator of the funds).The content will be created through Creative Commons 4.0.💖 Please support us with three quick things:A heart ♥ on the project,Donating to it,and sharing it* wherever you can.These things will already be doing world-impact.

Gaia Gives
Maxim Goeschen
Gaia Gives - Web3 Philanthropy for Radical TransparencyIf we’re serious about a regenerative future, philanthropy needs a revolution.The reality is modern philanthropy is inefficient, boring, and broken.Donors have a hard time finding vetted impact projects 🧐, don’t know where their money is spent 🔮, and rarely get updated on the true impact of their donation 🥱. Impact projects spend significantly to find donors 💰, struggle to engage donors 📣, and have no clear way to demonstrate their impact 📋.So we are creating Gaia Gives, a blockchain-based fundraising platform that promotes impact projects, with a radically transparent fundraising engine that enhances storytelling, aids fundraising, and rewards donors for their participation. Our platform is a complete rethinking of charitable giving, with the goal of turning donors into collaborators to help fuel a regenerative future.Why Gaia Gives can make an impact:Milestone Based Fundraising - Project goals are broken into achievable milestones with proceeding funds released after successful completion of each step.Transparent Budgets and Impact Verification - Projects submit proof for each milestone, and donors collectively verify if the goal was actually accomplished.Payments Tracked On Blockchain - Be certain your money is going to the right place with blockchain-powered track and trace payments.Curated Database of Impact Projects - Projects are verified for impact and fiscal responsibility before listing and supported with coaching and mentorship once accepted.Donate Cash and Crypto in Seconds - Smoothly create a wallet, allocate, and adjust monthly giving to multiple projects without paying additional gas fees. Get News Feed Updates At Every Step - Better stories lead to more donations. We help projects connect directly with their donors through dynamic project updates that easily reformat for social sharing to other platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, and Tiktok.Give Recurring Crypto Donations with minimal Gas Fees - Accepting 50+ cryptocurrencies and fiat, our wallet manages automated monthly donations and minimizes gas fees letting donors keep full custodianship of their funds.Built-In Fiat On and Off-Ramping - Accepting fiat and allowing the payment of fiat to 74 countries, an essential feature for less tech-savvy impact projects. Massive Launch Partners - The Ocean Cleanup Project, UNIFY, Viva Con Agua, Surfrider Foundation, and Grassroots Economics to name a fewToken Economy and Decentralization in 2023 - Tokens reward donors for giving, verifying milestones, and contributing to platform curation. We aim to gradually decentralize the platform’s governance with token holders providing governance direction.Fuel Our Future - Why Give?Until we close our first round of investment, we have little fuel in our tank to help build community and gain early traction. After 1.5 years of work, all members of the project are still working without a salary, having invested significantly into the project.Funds raised via Gitcoin will go towards helping us expand our community and begin preparing the market for our launch, as well as pay the salary pending of Patri.
