  • Graphic Designer Position in CrowdDoing-Nature Counter

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Graphic Designer/Package Designer /Subscription Box Designer Virtual Volunteer Position for CrowdDoing Project:Medicinal Foods for Stress, Sleep and Anxiety CrowdDoing is a global virtual collaboration to research medicinal foods for stress, sleep and anxiety. Our project has the goal of advancing integration across fields of research and to build medicinal foods literacies in the population. CrowdDoing studied biophilia in cities and found that there are more than one hundred diseases that can be prevented through access to nature.[1] 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 edose 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. Can we validate against known locations of parks? I see "park" is a place type on google;s api for example- (https://developers.google.com/places/supported_types). Key Responsibilities: Develop brand identity, including typography, photography, graphic and brand standards, and produce packaging structure designs that meet brand aesthetics while showcasing and protecting the product Experience with package design, including creating dielines and prototypes, is a must for a package designer position.

  • Graphic Designer Position in CrowdDoing-Wildfire Prevention Derivatives

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Graphic Designer/Package Designer /Subscription Box Designer Virtual Volunteer Position for CrowdDoing Project:Medicinal Foods for Stress, Sleep and Anxiety CrowdDoing is a global virtual collaboration to research medicinal foods for stress, sleep and anxiety. Our project has the goal of advancing integration across fields of research and to build medicinal foods literacies in the population. CrowdDoing propose launching a prevention derivative with two new stakeholders: (a) contingent payers who pay in proportion to the reduction in risk, and (b) impact investors who finance social innovations in which their return is similarly proportional to the reduction in risk. It will build on existing precedents for contingent contracts involving social- innovation-based risk prevention. A spectrum of forest fire risk prevention approaches are available: from creative new social innovations to well-established interventions. The forest fire risk prevention derivative would first survey existing forest fire prevention interventions in Greater Sacramento with an eye towards which ones might be suitable to support and expand. It would then review global social innovations that might be relevant to Northern California to determine which to replicate. Entities involved in risk management and risk securitisation, from insurers to reinsurers to retrocessionaires, ought to welcome the chance to share liability proportionally through a commons of prevention innovations. The prevention derivative can expand as more institutions and individuals join as contingent payers and impact investors in order prevent a larger portion of collective risk. Payments by private and public institutions to support prevention derivatives can be in-kind, through services, and/or financial.

  • Biophelia Cost Benefits Financial Analyst, CrowdDoing

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Biophelia Financial Analyst Cost Benefits Globally more deaths per year are linked to urban air pollution than to automobile accidents. But increasing plants in cities can be a major countervailing force. Biophelia was defined by E.O. Wilson as " "the rich, natural pleasure that comes from being surrounded by living organisms." Over the years, evidence has mounted of the mental and physical health benefits plants can provide to humans. If the density of plants per acre in a neighborhood or city reaches botanical garden density (that is, comparable to the level of plants per acre of the Forest City in southern China, the neighborhood of the Bosco Verticale in Milan , or the neighborhood around largest vertical garden in the world in Bogota, Columbia), the number of deaths in cities from air pollution can be nearly eliminated and cities can become more livable places. How can we bring this reality closer in cities around the world? CrowdDoing has simulated health and economic gains from increased plant density through vertical gardens in hospitals and libraries. These can be extended and deepened through further outcome simulation, contextual modeling and visual illustration carried out by a diverse range of volunteers, potentially including city planners, biologists, and hospital/medical system experts. Plant proximity has been shown to be beneficial in multiple ways including from air pollution reduction & stress reduction. These leverage points have been demonstrated to have positive medical consequences in terms of reduced opioid addiction, reduced medical mistakes, prevention of diseases & conditions such as hypertension & related complications, asthma, heart attacks, strokes, cancer, diabetes, alzheimers & dementia, schizophrenia, rheumatoid arthritisacute pancreatits, chronic kidney disease. We have also evaluated the consequences of proximity to plants on hospital staff presenteeism, absenteeism & turnover rates. We have concluded that under any scenario we have tested, a network of plant walls & vertical gardens and other uses of plants could pay for themselves in as little as two years and provide beneficial outcomes for more than 20 years. Plant proximity is understood by the scientific community through the lens of "biophelia". Biophelia is the visual & sensory experience of plants and proximity to plants. You have expertise relevant to reviewing for validity and applicability our simulation of biophelia in hospitals. Our draft aims to forecast the social outcomes that could be caused by varying scenarios of biophelia in hospitals. We have identified more than 100 outcomes that in principle can be attributed to biophelia. We present here in draft for review a partial simulation of this impact potential. We have aimed to consider prospective benefits to all stakeholders. We have structured this to be a flexible model that can be adapted to any hospital circumstance. We’ve aimed to identify both health outcomes, environmental outcomes financial outcomes.

The problem that the ReJews 501c3 sustainability and social entrepreneurship nonprofit organization is facing is being able to reach and connect with those in need of the benefits of our work, and fortunately Google has provided its services through their Google Grants program, so a skillful and caring individual who can manage and utilize the massive monthly Google grant for $10,000 in Google Ads advertising is greatly needed.

    This is a virtual opportunity
    Wed, November 11, 2020 - Thu, December 31, 2020

    Volunteer to help Mohonk Preserve bring its extensive archive collection into the digital age. This is a digital volunteer opportunity that you can do from the comfort of your own home. Learn more about how you can get involved in this exciting digital volunteer project: https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/mohonkpreservedsrc/a-century-of-natural-history-observations For over a century, the team at Mohonk Preserve has been diligently collecting data on all aspects of the natural life in the Shawangunk Mountains region. Everything from weather patterns to the phenology of local species is carefully monitored and catalogued each year, creating a treasure trove of data for anyone who wants to know more about the phenology of the "Gunks." Today we use technology to store and track our data, but this was not always the case. Daniel Smiley, the creator of this project, originally would walk the Shawangunk Ridge lands with notecards in hand, writing down whatever he saw. Over the course of his lifetime, he and other researchers with whom he worked created over 10,000 notecards. These notecards are rich with detailed information that is useful in a multitude of research projects in areas like ecology, land-use change, animal migration, and species’ range changes. Rather than keeping this important research tool tucked away in file cabinets, we want to make these cards digitally available to scientists, students and all who want to use them. Through a generous grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services through the Museums for America program, we’ve been able to establish a project protocol and create digital images of over 9,000 Dan’s note cards. Now we’re asking you for help making this information fully searchable by looking at individual cards and transcribing the information on them. Thank you for helping us share and expand access to this remarkable natural history resource!

    This is a virtual opportunity
    Wed, September 30, 2020 - Tue, December 29, 2020

    The Sierra Club is the largest and oldest environmental group in the United States and has been essential to the founding of the National Parks, the enforcement of the NEPA, the Clean Water, and the Clean Air Acts. We've recently launched a number of local campaigns, Ready for 100 campaigns to push cities to commit to powering themselves by 100% renewable energy by 2050, and we need you! We're looking for passionate individuals to serve on the four major committees within our campaign: grassroots organizing, Grasstops policy advocacy, communications, and digital. Though the time commitment for each committee varies, you can expect them all to include a meeting once a month o for an hour to an hour and a half, in addition to whatever outside work you assign yourselves as a team. Below you can read a detailed account of the work each committee does, If you have any questions, feel free to email the contact for this post. Thank you so much! We look forward to working with you! Grassroots The Grassroots Committee is perhaps the most foundational and important committee of the campaign. Without grassroots messaging and support, we really can’t exist. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to research and serve as liaisons to groups within the Cleveland community, and bring them our message and request sign-on to our campaign. We’ll build bridges with local groups and ensure that we work together to create a coalition to bring our demands for a cleaner and sustainable future to city leaders. We can form relationships with groups in all different areas, including (in no particular order): Health care Faith groups Small business Colleges and Universities Nonprofits Arts community Low-income communities and agencies Organizations that represent women, people of color, LGBTQIA In addition, the grassroots committee will also have numerous opportunities to table at events and spread the word to individuals in all sorts of communities. Executive Outreach The Executive Outreach Committee is tasked with forging relationships with city leaders and delivering our campaign pledges to them. They are the "lobbyist" of Ready for 100 and are the primary way we intend to sway the city council. We are looking for extroverted people who consider themselves sufficiently affable to impress these local leaders and make connections on behalf of the campaign. We also need researchers who can map out our local leadership networks and effectively communicate about these networks to the rest of the campaign. Communications/Media The Communications and Media Committee is a critical arm of the campaign. You can think of it as the committee that maintains our public image and helps the other committees meet their goals by researching various topics and finding new ways to effectively communicate the Ready for 100 messages to the public. The Communications team has three main positions: Researchers: people who are willing to fact check & update content as facts & numbers change. Writers: people who are skilled writers to update content on our web page, social media, handouts, press statements, etc. Graphic designers: people who can help put together handouts and printed documents in an aesthetically pleasing way. Additionally, the Communications Committee is looking for volunteers to help out on our media team. This subgroup is specifically dedicated to producing video content such as the campaign promotional video we sent out in our last email. We are looking for anyone with a background or interest in video editing, digital video, storytelling, motion graphics, graphic design, animation, photography, project management, lighting design, sound design, or music. Digital The Digital Committee has a lot of overlap with the communications committee. However, Digital also has its own list of unique responsibilities. Their objective is to: Maintain and manage our digital presence (Facebook, website, and other social media accounts as needed). Maintain Add-Up, which is our best way to get petitions out to the public. Manage the emails to supporters and volunteers and help keep our campaign in sync.
