Sustainable Development DAO

Name of DAO :
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT DAO (SDD)

Asking Amount:
Total: $1 million over a year

Round 1: $50K for 3 months

Please CLICK HERE for the Big 6.

PROBLEMS :
Sustainable design and development are not efficiently accomplished from the top-down approaches; bottom-up scalable and easily repeatable processes are needed to meet the needs of the world and an equitable distribution of shared wealth is needed to grow these processes feasibly.
Art and interaction that normally sustain movements are kept separated from start-ups through traditional bureaucratic structures, so alignment and momentum tend to begin off-kilter; art, academia, and innovation must connect at inception to establish a tangible new reality that can be understood on multidisciplinary levels and not an elitist niche entrée.

MANDATE

  1. Ethics
    Social Responsibility to uphold the integrity and values of all affected communities.
    Equitable Accountability to guarantee a path of equal opportunity for all potential people that can be involved.
  2. Economics
    Fair Access to contribution/reward pathways
    Feasibly Self-Sustained using local resources through cyclical processes.
  3. Environment
    Regenerate Ecosystems that promote and support life on Earth.
    Use Best-of-Practice technology/technique to live symbiotically with Earth.

SDD Mission
Sustainably create a carbon-negative network to host an enterprise grade modular middleware for offset auditing/accreditation/distribution. Those interactions will catalyze sustainable development through near-perpetual funds from regenerative processes that expand ecological value representation.

Goal 1
Adopt/plant a forest in the name of the Harmony Protocol to officially represent the network as carbon negative and use the resulting carbon credits to sustain the process, empower localities, and provide ecological long term wealth vehicles.

Goal 2
Build a DAO that is socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable by empowering a diverse community to discuss, build, and earn through diverse projects.

Goal 3
Develop internal DAO Resource Planning software (DRPs) that is compatible with the SDD product suite so as to connect impact with development history.

Initial Core Project Mission
SDD will use Afforestation, Forest Management, and Data Management/Analysis tools to (a) steward the lifecycle of a forest and (b) use the collected forest data to support the creation of verified carbon offset credits. These carbon credits will support both the offsetting of the Harmony Protocol and funding the treasury through the sale of credits on the market.

The data management/analysis tools will form the foundation of a middleware. This middleware will (a) operate to evaluate carbon reduction projects data to convert those offsets into tokenized credits, (b) provide a marketplace for buying and selling carbon credits from diverse environmental projects.

DAO Operations

Meetings
The “main-office” in the “MEETING AREA” of our official discord hosts public meetings once a week. Currently they are Wednesdays from 12pm-1pm PST, but are subject to change with the latest onboarding process. Official consensus from meetings are collected asynchronously through a dynamic meeting form made available in “async-meeting” and are open for 5 days to responses. This process is the most inclusive and understanding of differing geographies and schedules. Once our Twitter is able to host Spaces, additional public meetings will be created for open discussions; for now partnerships will help our voice, like the Community DAO.

Governors
Governors are responsible for maintaining existing SDD products, operations and the grant process for the open project scaling. They work 10hrs a week at 75$ per hour. The initial governors of the DAO will establish the regenerative funding mechanism for the DAO as the core project team. After a year, once the core project is finished, there will be an election for new governors from incubated members and a new core project will be chosen from the fully scaled projects of the SDD incubator/accelerator. Governors have subsidized access to the “DAO Resource Planning software” (DRPs) to initiate requests across the DAO to streamline the incubator and accelerator. This system allows for diverse engagement for members and provides mechanisms to support emergency situations such as stagnation or overbearing workloads for governors.

Membership
Members participate in incubation, project acceleration, and respond to requests given through the DRPs. Membership incubation leveling is gained through participation within the community, completion of courses, and engagement with the DRPs. This process will initially be tracked on Discord and will migrate to Web3 with time. Fully incubated members can vote on proposals, vet projects, build teams and propose projects for acceleration; incubation will happen at a level that will be determined at a later date once all education relative to the DAO has been released for all to absorb.

Roles
Members will all be required to select a role which represents their preferred skill focus. Roles are non-binding and can be changed at any time. They represent common positions/responsibilities of project teams. Members can have multiple roles on multiple projects within the DAO. Only one role can be selected at a time, but the responsibilities of a role can be shared between members. This gives the DAO an ability to assess growth in specific skill areas, provide guidance for team building, and is used to organize the DRP. A project team represents the collective responsibility of all roles, but not every role has to be represented by the default selection of the member; members can share the roles and use the DRP to distribute the weight of the responsibilities (think of how multiple Power Rangers can operate a singular Megazord). Alternatively, a singular member can hold a full role and is empowered by the DRP to accelerate and diversify output (think of how a pilot operates a Gundam). Through specialization and unfettered utilization, members can organize efficiently while not being restricted to strict singular positions.

DAO Resource Planning software (DRPs)
Operations have their commonalities and recognizing repeated processes gives way to usable solutions for efficiency. When members identify these opportunities they create procedural templates that get repeatedly tested and minted as an NFT. These Procedural-NFTs provide a development pathway for tooling DAO Resource Planning software. DRPs are organized and distributed by relating Roles that tend to experience the process the most. However, all will be made available to the incubated members on a separate aggregate display board. This dual placement process of DRPs accomplishes an accelerated collaborative environment while providing equal opportunity to participate and expand one’s self. These products will require a nominal usage fee that funds the DAO and gives initiators the chance to set the price of the action. Quazi-organizational structures allow for the transitional learning experience necessary to keep up with modern innovation progressment.

Projects/Proposals
A project team must be 5-7 teammates chosen from fully incubated members. All teams must agree to uphold the responsibilities of the full suite of Roles. Members can maintain a role as an individual, or they can share a role as a collective. Scaling-projects can access and use the DRPs to accelerate and/or strengthen output. Proposal templates will be provided along with instructional guidance on the process. A designated waiting period for voting allows for iterative feedback. Only fully incubated members vote on project acceptance into the accelerator and progressment to the next stage of scaling. Projects must meet agreed upon metrics to move onto the next stage. Each stage of scaling receives funding that scales with the process from micro, meso, macro, and ending in an opportunity to be voted as the core project of SDD. All projects will meet SDD mandates and design principles on every level of acceleration.

Passions / Health, wellness, sustainability, and making the world a better place. I founded my own business called “Elixir of Life” two years ago, which aims to encourage wellness & holistic nutrition, while also celebrating sustainable business practices through the use of reusable glass bottles, organic ingredients and through contributions to environmental initiatives whenever possible (ie, ocean cleanups and supporting non profits) My Story / I discovered the Harmony community last year, and have fallen in love ever since. Dylan (ChaoticBeautyz) showed me an NFT he created called a “Real Fungible Tree”, and when I saw that there was an opportunity to bring sustainability and do something good for our planet, I started showing up for all of the meetings and became immersed in the space! I have since became a governor on the Ambassador DAO, SDD, and have worked with Bridge Builders. I worked for the past year & a half doing Business Development in the credit monitoring industry, and have recently been able to leave my 9-5 job to focus on the growth of Harmony. At EthDenver I was hired by Harmony, and I start my Business Development role this week! It has been a dream come true to work in such an incredible community, and the Sustainable Development DAO has been a place where I’ve made valuable friendships & have discovered a place where I can bring my passions to Web3, while helping our planet! My Skills / Networking, event hosting, content creation, public speaking, business development, quick learning, and being a self-starter. I am grateful for each and every one of the individuals on this DAO, and in the Harmony community. Thank you for having me :pray:

Colin Ricketts - https://twitter.com/OG_Lemurman?s=20&t=5txkZwiYLdkv9kiUGvYy4w
I have been driven by a childhood commitment to end poverty. What good is a house if a person cannot sustain themselves in any meaningful way? The social traps that create the inadvertent pyramid scheme of life need to be replaced and a better way of life must be articulated through feasible and equitable means. I am a Sustainable Environmental Design major from UC Davis and have worked with our brilliant team to model the offset distribution mechanism of my vertical farm to become a regenerative funding source for scalable sustainable development and plugin for carbon negative businesses such as agroforestry projects, new age manufacturing, and any other environmentally/ecologically net positive action. I see the $33 trillion worth of ecological process as a value to be mirrored to fund the transition to a Circular Economy. There is more anthropologically created material than there is biological mass on Earth, this means the return cycles of this economy are well beyond the $33 trillion. This is a measurable amount of value that can equitably empower a movement to achieve more using less and build a world for 10 billion people.

Malvee Vasan - https://twitter.com/MPankhaj?s=20&t=IY6wDOW8sDKJd4zY9qcwvw
My name is Malvee Vasan; I am a Software Engineering major. I come from the nexus of many crossroads such as art, writing, tech, and the pure sciences- of which, I love to ideate original solutions to different kinds of problems- be it everyday fixes, or monumental design implementation that whole communities can rely on. I become an artist in flow when my big-picture view and intuition allows me to see and dream about possibilities from associating seemingly abstract and unconnected ideas to bring them towards a unique solution that can inspire healthy change throughout different city-ecosystems and the natural world. For example, I previously designed an avant-garde water purifying fountain using biomimicry and IoT for cost-efficient pond habitat restoration, data accessibility, and system control. In working with BBD, I had provided logistical and mathematical insight into creating tools for a new Smart Contract standard. My vision is to see such individualistic desires for change become whole with realizing families and communities thriving together from a welcoming ecosystem of ideas within SSD.

This means the world to me Kakashi, I felt so bad having to pull back from the Community DAO but I hope you see the passion was not wasted. I wanted to assure I respected the forgone opportunity with something that brings our community and ecosystem diverse utility and regenerative value. Lets work together to grow sustainably through diverse opportunities. :blue_heart::fire:

The parallels between us are great DAO and beyond. What has driven my life was a childhood vow to save the world; I learned poverty is the root of disparity; through learning about poverty I found infinite opportunity to raise the lowest quality of life. Growing up in the SF Bay Area I got to experience the hypocrisy of urban food deserts gentrifying communities due to generational stagnation from a systemic (forced) choice between health and wealth. Your solutions presented for establishing micro-economies for seeding new regenerative physical communities is the exact direction the world needs. We are establishing measurable alternative value that can grow exponentially as it incorporates into symbiotic anthropological development. Working together, the abundance of the world will come into view faster than any one person or group can handle, so growing and supporting this relationship (and those to come) will make our world prepared for itself. I totally just want to help the world the best I can and dance my ass off at your awesome festivals :blue_heart::smile:

It would be awesome to consolidate

Hello @OG_Lemurman

So good to see this up and out there!!

Okay - so, question – how would you feel about running the Sustainable Development DAO along the same paths as our other DAOs? i.e. following the model of Bootstrap / Operational / Expansion?

The idea here is that you could get a $75K grant that will bootstrap your operations. All you need for that is the “Mighty Six” (see DAO Funding Guidelines). Most of that you have in your proposal already.

After the Bootstrap - when your DAO shows Decentralized Governance, Reporting and Accounting and an operational plan - we can move into the “Operational” stage of DAO funding → $100K+.

After that, your goal would be to define a path to self-sustainability and we would fund an additional grant (again $100K+).

Thoughts, my friend?
Best,
Sam

:white_check_mark: This sounds good, this proposal has been modified to reflect the Big 6 and will include a more concise document under “Asking Amount” (at the top).

:white_check_mark: There is a chart breakdown of deliverables and metrics for the 3-month start-up phase now located above the overall budget breakdown.

Thank you for your feedback and encouragement! :pray::100:

This looks fantastic! @OG_Lemurman
We are excited to see where this DAO goes.

Our DAO Operations team would like to agree to fund the 50k!

However, this DAO has conditional approval pending the following suggestion:

We would like to know how would you feel about rotating signatories based on a public vote? (Rotating on a 3 month basis)

Let us know your thoughts!

Just joining the conversation here, I believe with core DAOs it’s essential to rotate ‘signatories’ and give the community the choice to replace governors along with some other DAOs, but to think all DAOs would need to do this, is terrifying.

3 months is not a long time. For something that this DAO could achieve with its potential to do some amazing things, having governors rotate, having them go through the learning curve, along with Colin possibly loosing control of the thing that he has worked so hard to build and perfect sounds like a nightmare.

Is it the norm for all DAOs to rotate governors so often, regardless of how they plan to operate? We’re still in the learning phase for DAOs, we’re yet to see their success with a long term plan, I think sometimes you need to find the right people to oversee things, but keep the governance and the community in the loop regarding operational decisions.

Should there be a hard cap on rotation for all DAOs? Should there be a set number of open seats for new candidates rather than replacing all 9? Or what I think would work well with a DAO of this scale with its future operational needs, additional seats on top of the 9 governors open for people to run for. Which would hopefully be professionals in this field.

Interesting topic for sure, however I do believe some DAOs could run into quality issues having governors up for votes so often, how can they plan long term for governors to travel and maintain the DAO infrastructure and assets being acquired long term etc when they’re not sure if they will be around in a week or a month.

I wonder if I made any sense. Haha

The proposal has been updated and posted on the google doc found below. If possible to allow for more editing attempts to continue our documented proposal update process, please comment back when available and the google doc based proposal will be moved back to here.

Thank you for the reply and all of the good yall have been holdin down for Harmony :blue_heart:
