Description

JoatU (Jack of all trades Universe) is a platform for incentivizing hyperlocal community action and getting to know your neighbors. There are two halves to this: projects and trades.

For example, the members of a community may want to plant a community garden. Someone creates a project and requests volunteers. At a certain place and time, the people come together and do whatever action is needed. All participants are then rewarded in CAPS: Community Action Points which are automatically generated from project work. Initially 1 hour of work = 15 CAPS.

What can you do with CAPS? This is where the trades come in: people can post requests for things they need and offers for things they have. For example, I might be able to shovel a sidewalk and so I offer to do this for 5 CAPS (this amount does not need to match the same 1:15 ratio for projects). Or I might want help with a problem on my computer, so I offer 20 CAPS to anyone who can resolve the problem.

Launch this initiative near you!

JoatU is currently validating our idea and seeing how we can best work with our current MVP which is a functional internet platform.

We have a sizeable list of emails (1600) and roughly 50 recorded in our test area. We need to make certain to meet the needs of those around us as we develop activities and ways to facilitate activity creation.

We have social media work, shout-out work, email templates, research & interviewing, analysis and strategic planning to do.

Our focus is currently on the Mile End and on developing the recipe to replicate this initiative across Motnreal. Let's put our heads together and see how we can make this a grand success!

We are also a part of the Maison Innovation Sociale Civic Incubator and have the opportunity for an extension of help through these means. https://www.mis.quebec/actualites/dix-projets-port%C3%A9s-par-des-citoyens-qui-souhaitent-transformer-montr%C3%A9al
