Caveat: I tried to post this as proposal but it didn’t work so I’m posting here:
Social weaving is critical for scaling Crowdpol to have the impact we wish it to have. To do this, an explicit strategy of how to socially weave together millions of change actors is required.
It’s all related to what Daisy said last night about an “embodied social network”. Crowdpol must distinguish itself as a place that feels like a home for humanity. It is not transactional, but can support our livelihoods. Rather, it is sacred and must be designed to automatically generate a feeling of authentic community and belonging. This requires a mind/heart shift from ME to WE..inverting the M as we have put it in the Stop Reset Go framing. Facilitating authentic empathy is critical. Seeing OTHERS as a REFLECTION of ourself is a perspective we must help inculcate
A direct result of this is that economically, Crowdpol need to develop a POSITIVE SUM (ECONOMIC) GAME so that every member personally experiences a community that is looking out for each member’s economic interest and livelihood. This will be key, as each actor who would consider “joining” crowdpol considers their own vested interest in their project and how Crowdpol will help them not only survive, but THRIVE. Naturally, blockchain can be enlisted to help us construct the positive sum game, but what’s missing is a tool to allow people to socially weave together. There must be tools that efficiently help to identify idling resources and leverage points within the network and then facilitate individuals to join together to unleash those resources. Millions of projects aspire to system change, but if none of them have these system tools to accomplish that, it won’t happen.
At the heart of all of this is treating every single living being as sacred. That is what, at the root level, bring about the deepest resonance. For myself, I need to feel that engaging in Crowdpol feels as if I am engaging in a sacred activity. That is what I would like to feel, and also what I would like others to feel as well.
Finally, there is an opportunity right now to trigger a social tipping point, brought on by the covid-19 pandemic. Soon, in a matter of months, tens or hundreds of millions of people may be forced into precarity due to global economic collapse. There is a need for a platform tool that can perform cross-scale sense-making and use that data to socially weave together change actors all over the globe to recreate local, resilient, regenerative economies. Food, water and shelter must all be solved for this to happen, on a massive scale. Shelter requires deep collective thinking as it is entrenched in the old competitive framework that only benefits a minority of rent owners.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
