Planetary health x web3 - unconference and learning incubator

Planet.Health: a learning incubator and unconference for planetary health x web3

Proposal overview

The health of people and the planet are inextricably linked and under threat. Planetary health is a solutions-oriented movement that addresses the impact of human disruptions to Earth’s natural systems on human health and all life on the planet. Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies facilitate decentralisation, transparency, ownership and agency. How can these two fields join forces to respond to collective global challenges?

Planet.Health is an exploratory incubator for people interested in how blockchain technology can be used to improve planetary health. We hope to onboard the crypto-native planetary health community to these tools. Together, we are building an action-oriented platform to respond in practical ways to critical planetary challenges, across three stages:

1. Earth: A series of virtual events focused on shared learning, community building and upskill on the intersection of planetary health and blockchain;
2. Chrysalis: An in-person incubator 21-23 October 2022 at Château du Feÿ;
3. Emergence: Building a shared platform for ongoing collaboration and action, including creation of a DAO.

We’re currently in the process of:

  • Developing the learning incubator materials
  • Visioning the unconference
  • Developing tools and platforms to support ongoing collaboration.

Overall funding requirements

  • €15,000 to hire the Chateau du Fey.
  • €2,000 to support catering for a 3-day in person event.
  • Up to €10,000 to sponsor participants from regions most at risk of climate change and low-income countries to attend and contribute at the in-person event.

Proposal ask

Patron Sponsorship - €10-15,000 - includes:

  • One pre-event online education session
  • Talk and workshop during the in-person event
  • 3 tickets to the in-person event at the Chateau du Fey
  • Institutional membership on the platform
  • Logo on all promotional material and outputs including research papers
  • [At least a third of your sponsorship will go to support participants from low-income countries to attend the event]

Depending on the funding amount we are also seeking other sponsorship and grants; funding the event will also be supported with ticket sales.

Metrics for success

  • 100-500+ attendees over time for the open-access online learning incubator, with materials online for self-study post-event
  • 60 in-person attendees at the Chateau du Fey
  • 1-2 academic papers exploring the potential intersections and applications of web3 to planetary health
  • Forming PlanetHealthDAO
  • Mapping of potential L2 applications to support Planetary Health on the blockchain
  • Community-building and lasting network to support collaborative planetary flourishing.

Thanks for your proposal, it has been assigned and the team will review and respond shortly :blue_heart:

Thank you! Also open to having a discussion about it and working with you in its formulation! :smiling_face:

@ritayara, thank you for submitting the proposal.
I have just a few questions:

  1. Do you have a deck showcasing the online pre-event and in-person event details?
  2. Can you provide additional details about the talk and workshop, and metrics for an ROI?
  3. Will this event be co-sponsored?

Per our guidelines: Guidelines for Harmony Grants

Dear @essalacher - apologies for the delay - had a bit of decompression after EthAmsterdam.

Here’s a link to the deck which includes the pre-learning event strucutre, a provisional timetable for the inperson event, and the ROI among others!

In terms of co-sponsors, United Health Futures (a global health consultancy) is already sponsoring, and we’re currently in discussion with a few DAOs and health organisations to come on board and deliver sessions and help with financing. As outlined in the deck, the event is not-for-profit and most of the funds will be generated through ticket sales, but any sponsorship will support ensuring proper representation of people at-risk of climate change (i.e. free spots for people from these regions to be able to attend), and also to open up access to the Web3 space beyond the usual suspects.

Let me know if further info I can provide! Thanks :slight_smile:

Thank you for your interest and for bringing this to our forum, @ritayara
