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

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.

Shayan Eskandari
Update: Over 20 hours of our Solidity course is now online for free and has more than 30,000 views just on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDwI1rIhknpNyUWdFt_XD6rpTEjTkUcYoWe are working on the next cohort for Winter 2023. -------------------Dear Friends, in these past few months we have embarked on an unbelievable and extraordinary journey! Thanks to your support, we were able to educate over 500 Farsi speaking people about blockchain and smart contract coding (Solidity). Over a year ago, seven different women (now Women in Blockchain Farsi) living in different parts of the world heard about a scholarship for the ConsenSys Academy smart contract development course for Farsi-speaking women. This opportunity, organized by the non-profit educational organization “CoinIran”’s founder Bahar and Women in Blockchain’s Founder Thessy Mehrain (also ½ Iranian), was designed to teach all the fundamentals of smart contract development. All seven women who applied for this program successfully graduated the course.This indeed was huge for us. Participating in an international course, coming from Iran, enabled us to overcome some of the everyday challenges imposed on Iranian society. Words cannot describe how grateful we are for this opportunity! This opened new doors in the world of decentralized technology and blockchain. We were able to take on freelance coding projects and even participate in hackathons! Now we want to help others do the same and here is why:There is a general lack of resources and educational content in the native language of these regions, posing major obstacles to Farsi speaking communities when it comes to accessing finance and decentralized technology. The Farsi-speaking community has a population of more than 120 million, located in West Asia in Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Iran. Recently, the Taliban government in Afghanistan has banned all girls from schools and has even closed universities. Moreover, heavy sanctions imposed on Iranian citizens has limited them from accessing most social media platforms via geoblocking and even blocking educational platforms, in this way making it difficult to gain access to accurate and up to date education content. Last year, we created the smart contract development forum to share and build on the knowledge we acquired through this course and participating in hackathons. The forum grew fast and is now an active platform for Farsi speaking community consisting of over 550 members. We also taught a Smart Contract course in the summer of 2021. The request for participation in this course exceeded the capacity of the class with 150 applicants. However, given the limited volunteer labour and resources, we only accepted 35 eligible students. The course was co-founded and instructed by Women in Blockchain Farsi, and mentored by Shayan Eskandari. The course ran for 3 months and featured more than 40 hours of online classes and technical articles. In this course, students were first introduced to the basic concepts of blockchain and Ethereum, and were taught all the technical skills needed to develop smart contracts and decentralized applications. Thanks to the endless labour of our volunteers, the course was well received by students. We had a diverse range of students, even as young as 13 years old! Our graduates received their special POAP developer certification.A few testimonials from the graduates of the summer course: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/activity-6873020335860531200-u-3R/https://twitter.com/chichinaaa/status/1464862158773235721?s=20https://twitter.com/erfansafari14/status/1464935859657056263https://twitter.com/DibaMomeni/status/1464871828699205638?s=20​​https://twitter.com/amiralbertt/status/1464981792902074374?s=20Even though the course ended in September 2021, our work here isn’t done, we need your support!In this year’s ConsenSys Academy Ethereum developer bootcamp, we were able to sponsor 65 Farsi speaking individuals (45 from Iran and 20 from Afghanistan). Unfortunately, the course abruptly ended for most of our students due to unknown legal issues regarding their jurisdiction. Even though this was a hard blow for both our students and mentors, we managed to pick up the pieces and move forward. We are determined to continue spreading smart contract development education and teaching valuable skills to foster autonomy and grant access to decentralized finance. Latest update: Our Gitcoin grant also was suspended due to the "jurisdiction" of our students!!Please support us in our mission! Not only will your funds help ensure that our volunteers get fairly compensated for the hard labour they put into managing and maintaining this course, but it will also help ensure that the course content and materials stay accessible and free to everyone!Let’s build a more equitable future by ensuring that everyone - regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, and geographical location - can benefit from blockchain. ----------Here's the Women in Blockchain Farsi team:

Coletivo XV
Vlad Niko
It is a movement that was born spontaneously through the union of skaters who were in the city center, mainly in Praça XV. Due to the repression of the municipal guard that limited the practice of skateboarding in public squares, there was a need to organize, question the ban and, above all, speak out in favor of freeing up the public spaces. Due to the need to communicate with the government in a formal and representative way, we founded the Associação Cultural do Skate. From then onwards, the activities unfolded into social actions, film screenings, musical presentations and art exhibitions related to skateboarding culture held at Praça XV, in cultural centers and museums. Nowadays, it is a cultural group that moves and forms partnerships with institutions, other collectives and brands.Coletivo XV is a non-profit organization that need funds to continue making the social difference through skateboarding culture.This was our last event funded by Skatehive community on Hive and LBRY Blockchain:This is our website -> https://ilovexv.com/dev (under construction)Reach us at -> https://discord.gg/Pa4vpKCSbt

Diamante Luz
Diamante Luz is a space for integrated collaboration and cooperation with nature. Our residents, neighbors, and visitors have been drawn to the area in order to co-create a space for living and working in balance with all of our relations.As the first node of the Diamante Bridge Collective, we are passionate about the integration of permaculture and shared common land-based resources.We offer learning environments for ecological wellness and restoration so all ages can share knowledge and connect with the wisdom of this place.We provide spaces for things such as:Cultural centers for artisansProcessing kitchens for medicinal and food preparationsSyntropic food forests for food security Mentoring those passionate about becoming leaders of local food movements Environmentally responsible regenerative businessesAll whilst offering the space for personal development through community interaction.We are an evolving eco-village of nomadic co-creators at the beginning stages of development with many opportunities for regenerative investment for the benefit of future generations. The land itself has drawn us in with two majestic waterfalls of dramatically different characters, a spring that is in need of replenishment through reforestation efforts, and a three hectare section of land that we have set aside as protected forest and waterways. Much of our work takes place in transforming the ten hectares of pasture into a thriving live/work community with opportunities for collective and personal land stewardship. We are inspired to share our passions for clean water, healthy soil, clean air, and beautiful sustainable structures.Our beautiful onsite waterfall, who we lovingly call Abuela. Cleaning our waterways, and keeping them clean, is a core project within our collective. A snapshot from a cultural exchange event, held at Diamante Luz, with respected local Indigenous Elders. We shared food, gifts, stories, values and intentions. We continue to nurture these relationships in honor of our Indigenous wisdom keepers and for continued collaboration. 8th July 2021.The structure which houses the heart of our community - the sacred fire, the kitchen, and the gathering and sharing space. Currently our most solid structure on the land, and built with our own loving hands, and the help of many volunteers. So much takes place in this simple beautiful structure!Diamante Luz family sharing wholesome plant-based food at a community lunch. All the greens for our amazing salads come from the land!Our master Syntropic Permaculturist Travis Britzke out in the field, sharing his knowledge. We have planted more than 1000 plants and trees in the last 2 years at Diamante Luz. We are aiming for food sovereignty and food security! Our soils are rich for planting a wide biodiversity of edible species. We also share our knowledge of permaculture and planting through educational pursuits such as public Plant Walks, a Mentorship Program, and during our regular weekly Hands on the Land events. This is Travis teaching Syntropic farming in a Plant Walk in July 2021, at Diamante Luz.Wendy Planting a Syntropic Line!Diamante Luz Plant Nursery.

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
🧐 What is Urbánika?Urbánika teaches about the intersection of Web 3.0 and regenerative urban governance. Our immersive approach focuses on turning the learning experience from a passive video course watching to gamifying impact-making in both local and digital communities.🤔Why?Three reasons.The mainstream education and media have convinced people all around the world that capitalism is the only way forward! However, the truth is that There Are Many Alternatives!! (TAMA)Humans are lacking inspiration and knowledge on alternative ways of governance, management, and relating.Traditional education systems are B O R I N G.💡Solution PLUS Connecting them all with funding mechanisms, such as Giveth, Gitcoin, and Urbánika's own fund distribution system* 🛠️What are we working on?Three things.1. Commons 101 with David Bollier. This is the basic course on the Commons.This course covers:What are the commonsThe patterns of the commons (Social life, P2P governance, and Provisioning for the commons)Web3, Wallets, DAOs, and dAppsFunding the commonsWhen? End of November.2. Specialized courses for activists, entrepreneurs, and policymakers (accessible only after graduating from the "Commons 101" course)3. Mini-educational videos posted on Twitter.🧑🏾‍🤝‍🧑🏻How is this immersive?Apprentices get a Skill badge when they test their understanding of each module with 101.xyz quizzesApprentices take both in real-life and virtual challenges through QuestChains so to get a PostCapitalist adventurer collectible. These challenges require the apprentice to generate a tangible impact in its community. Some examples of challenges are: Record yourself teaching two friends about the Commons, Research an urban commons in your region and post a half-page of it at your nearest bus stop, and plant a native fruit tree at your closes park. Apprentices and social media followers get Eureka moments through watching our mini videos that show the consequences of choosing capitalism or postcapitalism as ways of living.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 a greater understanding of urban commons, human coordination technologies, and matured networks of public good and crypto-commoning activists.🧠 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, and on personal experience engaging in DAOs and using blockchain4good dApps.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.As we are covering three niches (Policy makers, Entrepreneurs, and Urban activists) the challenges in each module will be several so apprentices can choose which one to solve based on their skills and interests. They will require to pass only one challenge per module, and one final graduation challenge. We believe in Open Knowledge. Thus, all the content created is being done using Creative Commons 4.0, meaning is free and for public access. The course will be available in the original language of the speaker with subtitles in English and Spanish.A SolarPunk styleInitially, 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 Urbánika's story and challenges call people to form 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.🏆TeamThe team members are passionate activists from Mexico and Europe, with a digital and physical reputation track that has enabled them to have leading roles in innovative communities globally.Anna Kaic: Creative, storyteller, and marketeer. She designed and created Proof of Humanity’s walkthrough videos gathering thousands of subscribers in a few weeks as well as thousands of views per video. She has managed and strategized social media accounts of web 3 projects such as PoH, MetaGame, and the Crypto-Commons Association, as well as from traditional organizations such as Istria Wine, Faculty of Economics at Rijeka University, Airfood OÜ.Rodolfo Ramos: Instructional Designer at two top 10 universities in Mexico. He holds broad experience in working with telecommunications companies and crafting immersive audio-visual productions (including virtual reality) in both Mexico and Japan.Bernardo Fernandez aka BEF: Bef, is a Mexican writer, cartoonist, and graphic designer that has been awarded several prizes, including the Mexican Novelist Prize “Otra vuelta de tuerca”, the Grijalbo Prize, the Silverio Cañada Memorial Prize of “the Semana Negra de Gijón”, the Ignotus Prize of the Spanish Association of Fantasy, Science Fiction and Horror. His works have been translated into English, French, German, Dutch, and Mandarin.HBesso31.eth: Social entrepreneur leading this solarpunk and post-capitalistic training program. He has been experimenting with social participatory approaches since 2014 by founding and orchestrating P2P-based services. In Chetumal, he led the first iteration of regenerative city-making. Magna cum laude in both MSc and MA of eGovernance and public sector innovation from KU Leuven. Alumni of the Programa para el Fortalecimiento de la Función Pública en América Latina, Trusted Seed of The Commons Stack, Hatcher of the Token Engineering Commons, Recruiter Champ in MetaGame, and Summoner of the UBI Blockchain Collective.B0gie: 3D designer and producer with more than 4 years of playing and researching 3D design. He is creating all the scenarios and avatars to display within the film series.Rok Kranjc: Game designer, researcher, and bridgebuilder between the now and a commons-based society.Ruslan Zolotarev: 3D artist and developer specializing in photo-scanning urban elements. Project manager, community teacher, virtual producer, and futuristic solarpunk.Pedro Mendoza: Animation engineer taking care of the 1st episode.David Bollier: Mentor and instructor of the Commons 101 course.💸 Budget Up to now, we have received around $10,000 in Gitcoin and $3,000 in Giveth. Additionally, we have put around $4,000 in cash from our budget, plus the work the team has provided without payment for already two months. The team has proven to be completely committed to propagating an alternative way of living, but we are running very low on our savings. Here is where you can make a huge difference. If you have arrived at this point, we ask you three simple things:Give a heart to our project. It makes our project go higher on the discovery page.Donate whatever you can. We are a verified project, and we are invested in turning your financial support into high impact.Share about Urbánika. Even a tweet saying: "Do you know about the immersive activism school of Urbánika? Check them out in @Givethio!" It makes a huge difference!!Complementarily we are putting in place an economic model to sustain our efforts.Our goal is to make the most impact possible, therefore Urbánika will invite those people that have the biggest potential to successfully apply the knowledge learned in our course to shape their local context. Our limited attention is given to cohorts of 30 people. This is to ensure that the treatment and accompanying are extraordinary. The cost of creating the course and providing so close attention is $15,000 in total or $500 per person (30 students). 🌻 So, what about the business model? Experimenting with regenerative and post-capitalistic ones!As we are focusing on creating open, free, and engaging educational content that accelerates societal’s transition to post-capitalism. We have been tinkering with potential ways to fund Urbánika's development. We have come up with the following:1️⃣ Value-aligned sponsorship. Urbánika will look for organizations or collectives that are willing to sponsor the student’s cost. The student can also decide to pay for its own cost.2️⃣ Value-aligned service offerings. From scripting to animating and video editing, we can help other mission-driven orgs narrate stories and educational content that helps in reaching a brighter, fairer, and safer future.3️⃣ Gift economy-based consultation hours. Our team's knowledge and experience are extended to support others.Our income surplus... Students, professors, and the Urbánika team will have governance rights on deciding where to allocate the following funds: *Urban Commons funding (40%). Financially support the emergence and consolidation of urban regenerative initiatives from the graduates of the course series.*Common-good emergence and consolidation (25%). Financially support common-good initiatives such as universal basic income, universal basic services, and others through Gitcoin, Giveth, and Goteo. *Workers' benefits (25%).
