It is difficult and overwhelming for newcomers to find their way within Catalyst.
Build an onboarding model through an active catalyst community to welcome, connect, and support onboarding newcomers
This is the total amount allocated to The Impact Onboarding
Proposal for this challenge:
Use the Cardano4Climate community, network to the catalyst & Cardano ecosystem, and projects in order to build a model for onboarding new members through a catalyst active community.
The solution will includes:
Cardano4Climate is already welcoming newcomers and contributing to the onboarding process through our media channel, info sharing and meetups.:
Build the model for newcomers (main work for this proposal):
A 3 month process to collect information
Cardano and Impact
Impact is a key element of the Cardano philosophy. The first sentence at Cardano.org is “making the world work better for all” and you can see this line in practically every video of Mr. Charles Hoskinson as well as many of the Cardano ecosystem activities.
Following fund 6 we have conducted the research matching Catalyst proposals with SDGs and the results were very promising. This research showed that 27.5% of the funded proposals directly connect to impact the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and 68.5% indirectly connect to impact the SDGs. This is not a surprise as blockchain technology has the potential to have an impact on financial inclusion, governance, education, and other areas which comply with SDGs objectives.
This is a huge opportunity for Cardano to continue to be the leader in philosophy, technology, and initiatives that support the growing number of government initiatives, investors sentiment, and company projects aiming to “make this world better for all”.
Many purpose driven newcomers are therefore having an interest in Catalyst and Cardano. This proposal will focus on how we can support easy onboarding for those people and build a framework around it that could be shared with other communities as well.
How might we make it faster and easier for new Catalyst members to take on suitable roles and responsibilities in 2022?
The proposal suggests a unique framework to build a model for onboarding newcomers through an active community.
Purpose driven ADA holders will find their way to Cardano4Climate. This proposal will build a model to onboard them. We will include the guiding questions to form the surveys and channel activities accordingly .
Risk: ineffective onboarding and connection to the right community channels
Mitigation: continue to promote coordination and sync within the community, cardano projects IOG and CF
Risk: newcomers would not be inclined to provide ongoing information, or that they will not continue to engage with the community and therefore limited information
Mitigation: we will add more new members to the process as needed
Risk: Being able to follow and record newcomers activities while keeping their consent and privacy
Mitigation: We will obviously do it with approval, unless being completely annomissely
Risk: The number of survey newcomers will provide clear evidence for the proposal to understand some trends
Mitigation:We aim to reach 50 newcomers with the initial survey and follow the ongoing activities of 10. We believe it is possible considering the Cardano4climate community backing it up. If needed for more information we will increase the number of people under the survey and follow up. We will do it to up to 100 newcomers if we feel required for better results.
Deliverables and KPIs
We are a global community of over 200 members, grown in 6 months around communication channels, meetings & a shared vision. 8 active core team members.
Since mid October, we have hosted weekly 90 minute zoom calls. We moderate a Telegram channel & Discord server with more than 200 members as well as maintain a YouTube channel & website. In the past 3 months we have hosted several Project Catalyst after town hall breakout rooms.
We have partnered with other Catalyst communities to collaborate such as Climate Neutral Cradano SPO group, DLT360, WADA, SWARM, Catalyst school, SustainableADA and more.
We have become a point of reference to connect community activities with ecosystem players such as Cardano Foundation, IOG, Cardashift, and Empowa all becomes activate members in the community
We have co-created a safe environment conducive to engagement
We organized, hosted, & recorded three "Catalyst Sustainability Goals" events in the last 4 months:
Clearly have demonstrated the ability to grow the number of members and create a platform for collaboration and interaction.https://www.youtube.com/embed/NukP4h4UyVAhttps://www.youtube.com/embed/7bZ6gqrzGu4https://www.youtube.com/embed/SAPUIlLFYio
Total budget USD 9400
The core team members is very active with the community and in addition to their rules being active as challenge setting members, impact activities, other communities and in the overall spread of the Catalyst and the Cardano community.
In addition we will offer some new community members to be part of the proposal team for it relevance as well for increasing their engagement
In collaboration with Catalyst and Cardano communities such as WADA (www.wada.org), SustainableADA (www.sustainableada.com), and Climate Neutral Cardano (www.climateneutralcardano.org), Cardano Foundation and IOG impact teams.
We are committed to improving the transparency of our process & decisions with increased accessibility of this information to all of our stakeholders. We have initiated a public GitHub repository where all ongoing tasks and actions will be tracked regularly.
Deliverables will be presented and shared in Cardano4Climate channels and at town hall.
