Welcome to the Envoy Foundation platform - this is Conservation Reimagined!
We are tokenizing and democratizing conservation. Here you will be able to vote for projects you wish to support, communicate with a like minded community, check out the latest in environmental and conservation news, and so much more. Below is a quick overview of this platform to help you navigate through. Enjoy!
You will get some EarthTokens for free when joining, if you are active on the platform you will get some free each month from the community chest, and you can also choose from various levels of subscriptions to make sure you get extra tokens added to your wallet each month, or just buy them in bulk when you please.
When you spend EarthTokens, you support whatever Conservation medium you choose. EarthTokens can be used to vote for projects you want to fund, buy NFTs (coming soon), or to boost content and comments on the platform.
We've never taken outright donations, as we felt supporters need to get something in return for their money. We thought supporters needed to have a real say in where their money goes, and we wanted to give supporters transparency. We think the EarthTokens concept achieves all these things, and we hope you do too.
Keep up to date with the latest news that relates to our Environmental and Conservation issues, as well as those specific to our Missions. From articles, to videos and even podcasts, we aim to become the best platform to keep you up-to-date and educated on all conservation issues.
It is a medium to long term goal of Envoy Foundation to employ journalists with scientific or environmental backgrounds, to contribute valuable and in depth investigative journalism to the discourse on these issues, and to syndicate that content to larger publishers. We see the creation of content and jobs in that space as part of our mission.
Until that time, we work within our capacity and resources, and use freelance journalists and AI tools such as ChatGPT (which are fact checked by a qualified human) to create content that we hope will be informative and valuable to our supporters.
Spaces is a really fun and interactive area where you can create and be involved in dedicated groups - similar to groups on other social networks - to discuss and exchange ideas about specific topics. You can create your own space/s, or join existing ones. When you set up a space, it will first need to be approved by our moderators, however you can choose if you want this to be an open space for all, or invite only space for more dedicated discussions or planning.
This is probably the first place you will visit each time you log on to the platform. It shows a quick summary of the interactions you’ve had on the platform, including anything you have been tagged in, or comments you have made which have been responded to, much like other social networking platforms.
It may seem like we are trying to do a lot, but our true goals are very simple. Here you can read all about our purpose, missions, and how we aim to support those in the conservation space, be they environmentalists, conservationists, activists, filmmakers, businesses or everyday people looking to make a difference.
We have divided our focus into five key areas for urgent recovery of our planet. This is to ensure the work we do has maximum impact while staying on brand and message. Read more about these five areas here - and if you are a scientist, filmmaker, conservationist or activist working on these issues, there will be opportunities to become one of our Envoy’s and be supported by the Foundation.
We are extremely excited to partner with people who are making a positive difference in the world. This is where we will tell you all about the Envoys we are working with, how their efforts are contributing to save our environment, and how we as a community can support them. This is also where we outline the criteria our envoys must follow in order to be able to work with us. If you are looking to be an Envoy, you can submit your project, idea or organization on our soon-to-be-launched Participate page.
Storytelling is one of the key ways to get conservation messages across to mass audiences. Documentaries are how our Founder came to be involved in conservation, first as a viewer, and then as a filmmaker. As such, filmmaking is close to our hearts and a key part of our strategy, and one of the types of projects we support is documentary films. Our slate is always expanding so if you have a project that the film industry might be telling you is unbackable - we might just back it.
