"If a mainstream-oriented project like this can help to spread the word about integrating open source design and technology into our daily lives, it could be an important initiative." - P2P Foundation
ENVIENTA is a next generation sharing economy model, a Do it Yourself, community-based solution package for the 21st century, which provides share of know-how, resources, products, food and water for the members. As an open source model and platform cooperative, it offers business plans to anyone for free, as well as full transparency.
Here is a short video (3:45) for better understanding.
I'm asking you to kickstart our community project with small amount of donations. If we reach our goal, thanks for that, we can spend most of our times in early 2016 truly focusing on online software development.
On our new website we’ll share the open source planning process, with version tracking. Searchable building techniques, collaborating experts, constructors, 3D printer hubs according to your location, all of these, with calculating the cost of your investments will be available on mobile, to propose the lists of available solutions in your region. It can be also a project organizer for groups. With the help of our new website and mobile application we build a maker movement - a community from innovative experts to bring commons-based peer-production into reality by building and managing ENVIENTA project centers around the world.
A short video (2:24) about the innovation centers:
Why ENVIENTA and similar projects are so important for the mankind in the 21st century?
The answer is in the next video. In this talk from the 2015 Network Society World Congress, I'm introducing the ENVIENTA & Qetema projects as a holistic approach to open source ecology . (18:08)
As we created the open source ecology project in 2014, Jeremy Rifkin, economist, government advisor (USA, China, Germany) & New York Times bestselling author published his new book - The Zero Marginal Cost Society - with several socioeconomic forecasts. Connecting to our project ENVIENTA - Jeremy Rifkin describes how the emerging Internet of Things is speeding us to an era of nearly free goods and services, precipitating the meteoric rise of a global Collaborative Commons and the eclipse of capitalism. If you ever wondered how could humanity survive the next paradigm-shift and really interested in our project, watch the last video (10:29) as a summary of Mr. Rifkin's revolutionary thoughts.
If you more like reading, in this document's first part below we're introducing the ENVIENTA project. In the second chapter we're examining the widespread opportunities for individuals, communities, educational institutions, local governments, cooperating business partners and investors to participate in the project.
Thanks to your donation we can start our collaboration with educational institutions around the world, involving them into:
• Commons Management Program
• Self Sufficiency Courses
• Graduate Studies Program
• Executive Program
• Conferences and ENVIENTA Summits
• Internship Program
• Open Source Research & Development
ENVIENTA concentrates on the following tracks of study:
• Energy and environmental systems
• Permaculture and alternative gardening
• 3D modeling & printing
• Home automation, robotics and sensors
• Nanotechnology and digital fabrication
Finally I'd like to thank your time and donation in the name of our visionaries, futurists, inventors, engineers, architects, gardeners, IT & social media experts, and enthusiastic volunteers.
