happy to see you on board! If you're new to this forum, the best way to start is presenting yourself.
Why should it be of interest?
sharing and building networks works as best if:
- needs and resources are visible
- networks are with many nodes as possible connected towards each other
- interests and motivation clear communicated
- dreams and visions are transparent
You are new to yunity?
(if not still worth to read getting insights of how to use the forum...and correcting my misspellings)
Yeah! that's great. We're building a network and are highly interested in creating a society based on collaboration and selfdetermination rather then concurrence and exploration.
What is yunity?
- a project that is developing a platform for sharing everything
- the platform that is being developed
- the community of people making it happen
- what you make out of it
We are yunity! ...to all agree to be the change we wish to see.
A society based on self-determination, trust and cooperation which allows
people to live to their full potential and to preserve ecosystems for
all living beings.
We encourage relationships where people can share their time, skills and resources, unconditionally. Through these connections and communities we prevent waste, raise awareness for a sustainable way of living and freeing potential.
sustainable and collaborative credo - one unique sharing plattform
yunity is about unconditional giving and receiving as well as reducing,
reusing, repairing, recycling and redesigning. With this in mind yunity
creates a community which relies on forming synergies and collaborative impacts.
All sharing and saving opportunities will be mapped and listed in a
virtual decentralised library system with categories for their upcoming
purpose. Specific information about resources will be displayed on the
yunity map as well as repair cafés, free WiFi, free-shops, fruit trees
and other locations, where resources are accessible. Everyone can also
offer and find events, venues and skills like workshops, art studios and
yoga classes. Via a mapping tool every user will find matching
opportunities for their individual needs or requests.
pooling and crowdsourcing - shift of ownerships
yunity will encourage a collaborative culture by shifting the perception of
ownership - the collective endeavor for distributed prosperity replaces
the traditional idea of individual ownership and will facilitate the
ongoing transformation towards owning less and having access to more.
This guiding principle will be implemented througha circular flow of
yunity is striving for this pooling element to change the existing economy that causes overproduction and waste. Besides pooling, yunity will also rely on an innovative crowdsourcing feature.
Any project can be realized by connecting their needs for resources,
skills and venues with the pool of commons and human expertise.
Therefore yunity enables the spread of a project idea to a crowd, to
find numerous skilled contributors who will take over different tasks
and make it a reality. Both, the pooling and crowdsourcing element
allows users to find projects or requests that match their interests and
to explore their possibilities to contribute.
shared values and real life community - encouraging relationships
yunity will generate its driving force from the passionate will of each
individual to be a part in a global effort for change. This potential
arises from a
society based on self-determination, mutual trust and cooperation where
everyone finds the freedom to ambitiously embrace their vision. Everybody has the opportunity to find what one truly needs and how one truly wants to contribute.
On this account yunity is strongly promoting real life communities with enthusiasm to share common interests. These shared values are the invisible source for strengthening a worldwide
community. yunity will open the world by encouraging relationships and
sharing of existing resources in your neighborhood.
