Agile Project Manager for Nature Counter by CrowdDoing.world

We are seeking this project manager volunteer to support our Nature Counter team in spreading adoption fo biophelia as a public health benefit. We are building an app and need project managers to help us with this impact goal.


You can see benefits of time in the park put on Nature Counter's linkedin page here- https://www.linkedin.com/posts/nature-counter-by-crowddoing_forestbathing-naturedose-attentionrestorationtheory-activity-6805531019593302016-1hnd, You can see more background on our Nature Counter team here- https://www.linkedin.com/posts/nature-counter-by-crowddoing_forestbathing-naturedose-attentionrestorationtheory-activity-6805531019593302016-1hnd. You can see a post about how just 30 minutes a week in nature reduces the chance of depression by 7%.


120 minutes a week in nature is a basic minimal nature dose every person in a city should
achieve as a matter of public health. 90 minutes a day five days a week every week is an
optimal recommended dose of nature for every person in a city. CrowdDoing studied biophelia
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, imminently 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 in park when the application is on. This allows people to
track it the way step counters track it. 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 biophelia collective health
dividend. The concept is that 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 their time in
nature. 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.

Biophelia counter builds off of the evidence that people who use step counters walk 27%
more than people who don’t. http://www.nbcnews.com/id/21901412/ns/health-fitness/t/people-
walk-mile-more-if-wearing-pedometer/ Assuming Nature Counter can achieve similar results
for biophelia, whatever percentage of the city who downloaded the nature counter application.
Assuming that San Francisco residents visit parks at an average level, they would visit parks
29 times a year- https://www.nrpa.org/blog/29-number-of-times-americans-visit-their-local-
parks-annually/. Assuming the minimal dose goal, each person would need to increase that by
another 40% to get to an average of a weekly visit to a local park and experience of biophelia.
Each person would need to expand that dose by 1000% to reach the optimal dose. This is
where a biophelia counter can come it and help people reach for more biophelia time in their
lives.

The only way CrowdDoing.world can realize its impact potential is through virtual volunteers, service learners (http://blog.reframeit.com/service-learning-and-skilled-volunteering/), and micro-leaders ( https://real-leaders.com/leveraging-micro-leadership-to-make-aspirational-goals-achievable/ ) coming together.

See this brief video about Micro-leadership at CrowdDoing ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhdB2YJ8Ocs&app=desktop ). Micro-leadership means that each person adopts a dimension of responsibility for a collective problem in our society through collaborating on that area creatively individually and together through social innovation.

CrowdDoing’s Nature Counter helps democratizes Attention Restoration Theory/

Biophelia/ Nature Therapy, giving everyone greater access to the benefits of nature.

Outcomes for Nature Counter rely upon increasing time in nature/outdoors as a way to

replicate the benefits from empirical studies in terms of mood, attention, productivity,

and wellbeing.

Our meta-analysis and literature review have shown that there can be significant health

impacts from 30-60 minutes of immersion in nature in a public park / leisurely forest

walks:18 It can reduce depression by 7%;; Can reduce high blood pressure by 9%;

improve memory performance and attention spans by 20%; and decrease in the stress

hormone cortisol by 12.4%.

Three days of immersion in nature increases creativity by 50% 19 We have found that

"2.5 to 3% of a person’s mental health is based on how often they visit parks. ... about

the same as the effect of additional income on a person’s mental health."20 Two hours

of afternoon forest walking increases sleep by 13%.21 CrowdDoing’s Nature Counter

built a prototype of a mini-course to help educate on the benefits of nature as part of

our service learning strategy:

development Nature Counter project.
