MapMappers

Map Mappers

After the participating in the Hackathon organized by the CoLab (Naomi and
Keala), as well as following the map channel in slack,  a space was found that is not yet mapped and where we could add value to the whole community that uses the various mapping systems.
MapMappers is the digital “homeset” of the existing mapping systems, the technologies they use, and the persons behind those projects.

Aim

After some research we could not find anything similar, in that way we are already creating value – we will create a system that would make it easy for any individual , community or organization to find accurate and uptodate information about the various mapping systems we have today online.
We will also be creating new relations with those who are developing it, and hopefully they will flourish into what we can say as intangible outcomes and this cross pollination may bring value for the wider community we are interconnected.

OUTCOME

A website that gathers a diverse range of mapping systems. A “listing” type of website where people can find the various mapping systems, their developers and technologies.

CoLab Elearning Platform

CoLab eLearing Platform

This proposal is for;

  1. The installation and set-up configuration of the Learning Managment Platform on behalf of Permaculture CoLab.
  2. Onboarding and assistance for the current Power & Permaculture course (being funded by Capacity+ funds) creators in how to build their course on the platform.
  3. The LMS plugin can be offered to other groups/circles/projects within and with links to the CoLab.

Aim

A resource for Colab members to be able to offer courses online in line with the Permaculture Colab Vision Mission and Aims.
A microenterprise offer run by Digital Circle to make this widely available in the permaculture community also outside of the colab through sharing of the professional licence.

OUTCOME

  1. Installation of plugin on the Permaculture CoLab website learn.perma.earth

  2. Set up of plugin to a point where it is functioning and usable for course creators

  3. Onboarding and assisting course creators in how to work with the platform, either in person or through video guides if synchronous meetings can not be scheduled.

This project is to install and set up the digital infrastructure to enable the following objective from the Capacity+ Project;

Training and eLearning: through the delivery of training and the creation and curation of eLearning systems and materials we aim to enhance the capacity of contributors to meet CoLab aims and incentivise participation of unpaid contributors.”

It will lead to an online course hosted on the CoLab perma.earth website which offers essential diversity training to the CoLab network.

Green Data Earth

GREEN DATA EARTH

Digital collaboration is at the core of CoLab activities, as well as the global activities and daily digital life of the permaculture movement and allied movements and citizens around the world.

Today with more than 4 billion internet users the digital online activity is offsetting more than the air travel industry.

GreenData.Earth aims to provide the necessary resources to enable us to reduce the offsetting of our digital life.

“As people, we need to adopt an ethic of right livelihood, for if we bend our labor and skills to work that is destructive, we are the destroyers … We should not be passive workers in established destructive systems, but rather we can be investors in life. We cannot profess or teach one ethic, and live another, without damage to ourselves and to common resources.”

Aim

” To accelerate the restoration of the whole in our world by creating an online practically focussed platform that creates an informative container for permaculture and allied movements. “

” Permaculture is appropriate information technology. Appropriate refers to applying efficient designs that generate the least amount of waste for the highest yield. It takes into account the actual social and ecological costs within this digital space. “

” Helping to weave together as a web of business ecology, which includes an assessment on the ecosystem about other initiatives that could exist within. “

OUTCOME

 Will deliver a website to :

– Create awareness about the impact of online activities by producing content about the topic

– Provide technical resources for calculating the digital&online footprint

– Provide educational resources for ethical content generation and design

– Create a micro enterprise based on services and/or products to reduce the online footprint
