CrowdDoing.world's CrowdDoing studied biophilia in cities and found that there are more than one hundred diseases that can be prevented through access to nature. Nature Counter is a CrowdDoing concept, soon to become a functional prototype that lets each person see if they are getting that level of time in nature per week or per month. Time in nature is approximated through the kind of nature that exists in cities-- geo-locations of people based on their cell phones when they are in parks. Nature Counter tracks each person’s time spent in parks when the application is on. This allows people to track it the way step counters track the number of steps they take. The aim is to have a universal public health goal of getting the city’s people to have enough time in parks to realize the biophilia collective health dividend. The concept is that spending time in nature is both an individual activity and a collective goal that friends should encourage each-other to achieve. Nature Counter is aimed at getting each person to track their time in nature and adjust their calendar over time to increase that time. Our estimations are that people’s time in nature would rise if they could track this and have target goals for their health due to time in nature accordingly.
120 Minutes per week in nature is also geo-locateable on phones. Have you gotten your 120 minutes a week at medium dose nature, or 90 minutes a day of high dose nature? That is determinable by if your smart phone shows you in the park for how many minutes.
We aim to build an app that counts how many minutes in nature each week you have spent and reporting that back to the person. This is like step counts, but based on time in nature as walks through non-parks don’t count for the nature counter. Time in parks or on coasts count.

See this brief video aboutMicro-leadership at CrowdDoing (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhdB2YJ8Ocs&app=desktop).
