There should be more of a spotlight on stories of Cardano projects implemented in Latin America, their regional challenges & solutions.
Share stories from change agents in Latin America, engaging with Cardano in cascading disruption, creating a better tomorrow, today.
This is the total amount allocated to Sustainable LatinAmerican Use cases
Sustainable ADA plans to connect you to the real-life examples of how Cardano is enabling cascading disruption by change agents creating a better tomorrow, today, throughout Latin America.
Sharing the interconnectedness of these communities and how they are networked with one another and rapidly growing.
We are going to share stories of empowering people taking actions in life-changing ways. Actions that ripple in globe shifting ways for a more sustainable, peaceful, and prosperous world for all.
We want to share the wonderful projects and stories throughout Latin America; bridging people into a world where they are welcomed on their lifelong learning journey & invited into the Cardano community, ultimately enabling and empowering visitors to discover, acquire, and nurture an appreciation of what blockchain is, its limitations, and its possibilities.
Provide resources for community members, non-Cardano community members, educators, and activists to confidently introduce blockchain technology into people's lives; highlighting the sustainable advantages and positive impact Cardano's blockchain technology has on communities and businesses on the ground in Latin America.
Sharing feedback and stories, focusing on progress from funded proposals in Catalyst regardless of failure or success. Helping simplify the complexity of these solutions so it is transparent for anyone around the world. Looking at how Latin American Fund 7 funded proposals are self-sustaining and do not need further funding to keep operating, contributing to best practices shared.

What Success Looks Like:
Reaching members from both the Cardano community and non-Cardano community to share and showcase the stories and strategies from using Cardano's blockchain technology; to empower and uplift communities, businesses, and the lives of anyone living across the region.
Sharing how Cardano is considered the most sustainable blockchain operating in Latin America.
Looking deeply at how Cardano projects in Latin America are not working in siloes but working in partnerships, networked and growing.
