Explain your project idea (2,000 characters)

Peace: violence is the consequence of inequality, the wish of someone to be percieved simply as a person, a global citizen; Prosperity: our natural caracteristics of judging facts, things and persons is a process of perceiving, discussing and proposing better ways to live; Planet: improving the behavior of respecting everyones life and making less discoursive and more realistic the universal declaration, that affirms that "All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights". Besides, we are making realistic the scenarios where human beings are perceived as part of the Earth and Cosmos' ecosystems, reframing our ego-centric view of living to a eco-centric way of living. Considering these first points, we can explore the abundant and

Who are the beneficiaries? (1,000 characters)

Human and the other beings who have been seen as objects, simple goals and numbers in public policies' projects, or even forgotten or muted in our global and social economies. Forests, plants and animal species, cultures and people, all they have a enourmous value in our current conditions to live as living organisms. Before establishing what worth more, we have to start to recognise each one as an important part of our lives.

How is your idea unique? (1,000 characters)

The perspective of perceiving and connecting the nature of the cosmos, of the biosphere and of the human activities and products as result and simultaneously income for continuous processes of transforming energies into new ones. The blockchain technology promises to permit a distributed ledgers where we can register simple and/or complex exchanges of values. So, we believe that one of the main values that we can put into new economies are more linked to human natures, like emotions, solidarity, sharing and even the time and the "glocal" (local and global) cultures and costumes.

Idea Proposal Stage (choose one)

  • Initial Design: I am exploring the idea, gathering the inspiration and information I need to test it with real users.

Tell us more about your organization/company (1 sentence and website URL)

The idea still has not an official registered representative, but is intended to be a collaborative non-profit organization. The proposed name is United Natures because we need to perceive and work together with our similarities, our natures (as human, as global citizens, as natural species), to close our goals in collaborative objectives (like the Sustainable Development Objectives, from the UN (nations division aren't enough), but to co-design the new paradigms our global world will face.

Expertise in sector

  • 3-5 years

Organization Filing Status

  • No, but we plan to register in the future.

In 3-4 sentences, tell us the inspiration or story that encouraged you to start this project.

Our society has many numbers that confirm that we are "getting sick" as a systemic organism (global warming, wars, terrorism, suicides, depression, etc.). Although we are convinced with negative news, there are uncountable actions daily made by persons throughout the communities that help us to live better. So, with the blockchain's possibilities and expectations, I decided to link those things that seems to be difficult to be measured to a consciousness to co-create new possible economies.

Who will work alongside your organization in the project idea? (1,000 characters)

Open communities of programmers who can copy, improve and spread the project around the world, because it will be available as a Github project.

Please share some of the top strengths identified in the community which your project will serve (500 characters)

People who used to be happier then those who have more guaranteed rights. That is, people with close and strong relationships and with purpose in life.

Geographic Focus

Societies and communities that have been considered sub-developed and/or poor, but are love richer.

How many months are required for the project idea? (500 characters)

24 months

Did you submit this idea to our 2017 BridgeBuilder Challenge? (Y/N)

Hi Dionifer,

I love your motivation, it has a lot of synergy with my interests. I am curious how, mechanically, block chain can inspire the sharing of values and value shifts in individuals and society. I am very curious as to how we can shift values and would love to hear you elaborate on this!

Thanks, Eric

Hi Eric,

Thank you for your interest! When we explore more deeply the human needs, many usual products can be put in doubt as an important value to be measured as development indicator. Are industrial jobs more important then the whole forest ecosystem? Are entrepreneurs more important than a rural family from Zimbabwe? Well, all this depends on the social discussions, our politics, our common values. Since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, passing through the Sustainable Development Goals, the nations' Declarations, the National, Regional and Local Planning and Budget Plans, until the work contracts and directs relationships (products exchange, marriage, associations, etc.), ALL this can be perceived as CONTRACTS. So, Smart Contracts can establish new paradigms and ways to discuss what really matters to people, specially those who are still peripherical in the world economy.

About the aspect of changing the concept of a global organization from United Nations to United Natures, the idea it to admit the individual interests and the natural dimension as fundamental to improve the global discussions. Nowadays, nations are not
enough organisations to qualify and respond to citizens' ways of living, traveling and creating value in our present and future society.

I believe we can elaborate more details and hope you and much more teams can be part of this construction.

Thanks, again,
