Protocols:

  • The community votes on how often to input each of these metrics and when/if to add more.
  • Each community member is prompted by the app to input data at that frequency based on their taste.
  • The data for each member and the community as a whole is available to every community member.
  • The app tracks corollary patterns: "The entire community's visual experience went up 20% with the planting of bulbs this year" so that we can sustain good choices.
  • When core metrics slip more than an agreed on percentage as an individual or as a community the app prompts a response at varying levels of urgency.
  • The app gives awards for individual and community accomplishments.
  • The information is reviewed in person at periodic community meetings where celebration and challenge can take place.
