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.


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 aboutMicro-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.
