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 for biophelia as a public health benefit. We are building an app and need project managers to help us with this impact goal.
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.
