Collective steps to Commons regeneration
I'm Diogo, and I collaborate in a hub (chat group) called Joint Agroforest Ventures. We propose a concept of small scale collectivelly managed agricultural block, based on lease contracts and sintropic agroforestry. Sintropy as the increase in complexity and biodiversity. Each area would have a Agroforest Design with a map, the working schedule, seasonal tasks and costs, produced collectivelly with the global team.
All stakeholders would interact in a social media with horizontal governance tools like different membership levels and rewards, reputation grants and credits like Sourcecred. Using opencollective we can create winwin situations for every actor in the forest regeneration front line. Follow up and accountance of the status of each territory would be presented on screen, with pictures, videos and comments. Satellite evaluations prove the positive environmental service indicators.
Those collectives best qualified gain trust of investors and get to go to larger areas, and then you have a grounded chain of commons production. In a matter of few years wood and fruits would start being produced in a sustainable way for generations to come. One would be able to be invest and be a partner in the production of cocoa, coffee, or other plants and get seasonal lifelong rewards.
Lease contracts could be short, mid or long term, payed in fiat or the network currency, in agreement with the parts. By promoting access to land we want to spread knowledge and revive rural jobs and services. Revive a regional commumal agenda based on the seeds of cooperation of the global team. You know that nice gardening group of facebook? Yes we want to expand it a little further. We believe that allowing urban people to interact with nature in a collective ground could be a kickstarter to human return to nature.
Sounds like a presentation, but what I would like to ask is: How do you expect platform cooperatives can regenerate the planet?
Thanks a lot p2p community for the inputs all this years, congratulations for the great webinars and materials and debates. Looking forward to partnerships, we are all very new on this platform coop thing, but yes, we believe it is the economy model of the future and are willing to catch up. The technology is out there, we offer our services to help it grow living roots. Our beginner Open Collective is at https://opencollective.com/jointagroforestventures . Cheers!
