Data and its growing value to environmentalism
We all may be, more than a little suspicious, at the growing rate of our personal data footprints, and what they say and convey, due to the incidents and instances of the collision of our daily lives against almost all life interactions, both human (social), machine (transactional), or service (log).
Data in support of a service offering a growing awareness, information and knowledge around planet saving environmental intent, action and execution, is an example of an opportunity for disruption, positive in purpose and process. All not data is created equal!
The invasion of data into and over our personal lives is complete. From here on in, data is set to intermediate all interactions, human to human or human to machine, in respect to all aspects and facets, at a growing rate. With the growing use and understanding of data, and insight to what it can speak to, many old problems are being reassessed and solved with the collaboration of new sciences and better and new analytic uses of data.
Data used in this way and for the environmental benefit of all mankind, in a corroborative environment of advanced algorithms, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, becomes a beacon of new learned knowledge, a new graphic user interface of environmental information and pedagogical tool of all, that when harnessed with an environmental focus can be used to make the right decisions, at the right time, at the right degree and force, for the benefit of the best outcome for our shared Planet.
Our strategy for the growing use, insight and value of data goes ‘hand in hand’ with our plans to see the development and implementation of the first, sensibly considered and applied, aspirational, ‘decentralised autonomous organisation.’ This is a huge endeavour and definitive of future not-for-profit organisations where community ownership and participation are sought and valued as the only solution to truly, global problems of scale.
The environment4change team have identified our partner organisation of choice, who will design and develop the environment4change information layer where community contribution, data science and web and mobile data is ameliorated, extrapolated and enhanced to bring new levels of knowledge and understanding to an industry forgotten and left behind, until now that is!
This development by itself brings a significant value addition to the environmental industry. Until now single siloes of environmental action, against centralised environmental endeavour function without the benefit of comparison, curation and cross-examination against other projects of a like nature and purpose. By introducing new informational tools and processes, the ‘information as a service’ layer will provide greater transparency and accountability inducing, we believe, a greater commitment for everyone to become involved within the science and care of environmental action, proven most beneficial.
The team at environment4change are building a platform as a service where new levels and data capture and harvesting will be included to further enhance the decision-making processes, so our Mother Earth gets the best treatment possible and our resources are utilised seeing investment made at the right time to ensure greater chances of intervention success.
