Here we work on the shortest possible self-description of transformap.
Jon: TransforMap is a techno-social architecture to visualize the commons transition.
Adrien: TransforMap is a socio-technical architecture to vizualize local alternatives to the mainstream.
Guiliana: TransforMap is an informal group of people, working towards mapping all alternative initiatives that have been/are beeing created in order to meet the need of people, not for profit.
About 14mmm: We are a collective of individuals and organizations that aim to visualize existing alternative economies and social innovation. Our goal is to provide standards tools and taxonomies to map the socio-ecological transformation happening on the ground. 1
Silke/Guiliana: TransforMap provides an online-platform to map the myriads of alternatives to the dominant economic model. It gives to everybody the opportunity to map all initiatives, communities, projects, worker-owned, self-managed or (at least) democratically organised companies dedicated to meeting people’s needs and serving the common good. It will visualize all places, spaces and networks that work on fostering cooperation and deepening human relationships through (co-)producing, exchanging, contributing and sharing, for a free, fair and sustainable world.
TransforMap invites all the existing mappings to cooperate for an open solution to map the plenty of alternatives based on a common taxonomy, Free Software and a standardised APIs and published under an Open Data License.
There are Plenty of Alternatives (TAPAs). TransforMap makes them visible.
