Welcome Regens, activists and caring citizens who are coming together to address the multitude of issues we face as a collective on this one planet we all call home! All for Climate DAO is here to celebrate your wins and support your journey to healing our planet. Below are some of the many initiatives, connections and future projects the DAO has in motion for the month of June 2022. 

The Month’s Highlight’s at a Glance! 

June 22nd, 2022

Each and everyone has at least thought or wants to impact the world positively, though there are many things that frustrate us, we ultimately wish we can. We have concerns about the environment, climate, and the heat waves happening all over the world and you imagine if the blockchain transactions, tokens and coins you buy causes these. Well, we at Return protocol handle just that. Imagine impacting positively on your environment anytime you do a blockchain transaction?? And still earn money!! That is what Return does for you. Return Protocol is an environmentally offsetting process for on-chain wallets. It enables the mass adoption of climate finance in web3 to make blockchain transactions environmentally sustainable. For every transaction you do on blockchain Return protocol will offset (deducting some a percentage fee and giving to environmentally beneficial assets) which accelerates the process of a “greener cryptocurrency”.

Why is Return protocol important?

With the continuous growth of blockchain technology and its increase in popularity and use, then you think about the fact that the last decade was the hottest in 125,000 years and you wonder what can we do better? Our planet is on the “brink” of environmental crisis. Carbon dioxide is at its highest in 2 million years and they are all increasing drastically by human activities. Imagine the impact offsetting your blockchain transaction will have? You might be saving the world (add emoji) Transacting on blockchains can be energy-intensive but we are getting to the point In which we can’t deny the necessity and importance of blockchain technology, so as a result efficiencies develop, we need to enable environmental neutrality and the risk to our planet minimal whilst ensuring the sustainable continuance of blockchain tech. With the level of transparency web3 has, anybody can see a single transaction energy level, calculate its environmental impact and choose their tokenized offset based upon the actual environmental project it supports. Then purchase in accurate quantity themselves and ensure an offset is completed by burning it yourself. These are all very technical and stressful right?? All these are automated with Return Protocol.

Return Protocol has a lifetime funding of $12, 590 raised from all contributors

Before we start discussing the future we’ve got to talk about the past. What is the Shamba Oracle? The Shamba Oracle is a geospatial and information technology company based in Kenya that focuses on getting reliable, up-to-date climate, vegetative indices and hazards data from satellite sensors to help use their software and analytics to build decentralized applications relating to climate, ecological and environmental change.

This is Shamba's Insight Tool examining vegetation over parts of Tanzania using the MODIS Aqua Daily NDWI dataset.

The Shamba Oracle is about making impacts sustainable, accessible and easy to use. All data that is available is usually highly complicated and not readily accessible for developers and other projects all over the world. Hence why, the Shamba Oracle was born.

Leveraging emerging technology tools to support marginalized communities is one core tenant of web3 that is often overlooked by most media outlets. Placing technology tools that promote community, sovereignty and fiscal sustainability into the hands of indigenous communities is one aspect of the web3 ecosystem that we openly support and celebrate here at All for Climate DAO. We are thrilled to place a spotlight on the Natives in Tech (NiT) Gitcoin GR14 proposal and explore the depths of the NiT organization with our readers.

Natives In Tech’s Mission

According to the Natives in Tech website, the organization has four main areas of focus; networking with a diverse community of technologists, creating a strong social media presence to support their mission, holding an annual conference that connects their community with the multitude of opportunities in technology and building "Native-centric technology" that empowers Native peoples. NiT is a US 501(c)(3) charitable organization and is supported by individual donations.

For over a decade, Bloom Network has been working towards global systems change. With 16 local organizations, located in 8 countries and over 50 different projects incubated through the network. A social network for in real life climate action movement has been created. With hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of volunteer labor contributed so far. The projects collaborating together exemplify an intersection of climate, economy and social justice. Out of the 30,0000 people carrying out regenerative actions on the ground, most are focused on regional food security and local food movement.

MISSION

Ayowecca is a community-based organization established in 2018, in the Tororo District of Uganda. The NGO uses agroforestry and permaculture as a solution to the related problems of urgent climate change and food insecurity. This Gitcoin Grant funded project is one of a number of creative strategies employed to increase food production, mitigate climate change, and boost resilience among vulnerable communities.

In addition to Ayowecca’s work to plant fruit trees in schools and health centers, they also train local farmers to help create farms in their backyards, equipping them with seeds and basic agriculture and entrepreneurship skills to encourage sustainable livelihoods and fight poverty.

We set out to raise 250 ETH to produce a documentary movie to mobilize people for the climate emergency but we ended up only raising 30 ETH, what happened? This is the story of our first crowdfunding using crypto on mirror.xyz.

Back story

In one of our calls back in July 2021, Frederic Laloux shared that he had a hard time raising money for his documentary series "The Week". It’s a 3 episode series to process - rather than avoid - the intense emotions that arise when we confront the topic of the climate emergency head on. It offers a different playbook to activate citizens and inspire them to do something in their community. He had already raised $1.2M by then but he needed at least another $1M.

Just a few weeks before, the project of a documentary movie about Ethereum “The Infinite Garden”, successfully raised $2M in 2 days:
