The Platform for Conservation Basic Income
- GoodCollective is a pilot program and decentralized application (dApp) that tests a new framework for direct payments to segmented UBI and verifiable climate stewardship.
- GoodCollective revolutionizes financial empowerment by directly channeling digital resources to maximize impact for groups and communities who need it most.
Whether these are climate conservation groups who preserve their local environments, socioeconomic groups who are disproportionately affected by economic disparities (e.g., Women’s UBI Pools, Social Justice UBI Pools), or emergency crisis groups in which targeted support is provided to groups in regions that experience unforeseeable crisis (e.g., Refugee UBI Pools, Natural Disaster UBI Pools), GoodCollective provides a direct payment interface, built on GoodDollar’s decentralized payment infrastructure, to facilitate an ecosystem of Collective Pools, donors, and implementation partners.

individuals and communities by providing direct digital
payments to to those who need it most.

DeTrash is a pioneering environmental platform focused on transforming waste management and recycling behaviors in communities like Coroadinho, a neighborhood in São Luís, Brazil.
DeTrash employs a multi-layered verification, measurement, and reporting system to ensure the effectiveness of its waste management initiative. Community stewards submit reports of trash diverted in kilos, and GoodDollar Ambassadors, also known as Recyclers, corroborate these reports and provide onchain invoices minted as NFTs. The system is designed for verification by trusted GoodDollar Ambassadors, ensuring an additional layer of accountability. This blended approach combines technology and community engagement to validate waste diversion efforts. DeTrash aims to address waste management and boost environmental stewardship while fostering economic growth within the local community.
Neduc is a women-owned and operated social enterprise that serves as a local partner to DeTrash, focusing primarily on waste management solutions.
The organization actively diverts plastic from landfills by transforming it into practical goods. Located in regions like Brazil and Peru, Neduc collaborates with community members and recycling facilities to incentivize recycling and upcycling activities. Through this symbiotic relationship with DeTrash, Neduc aims to scale the impact of its waste management efforts, making a substantial contribution to environmental sustainability.
Silvi is at the forefront of reforestation and biodiversity preservation efforts in Western Kenya’s Kakamega forest.
Silvi engages local community members, mainly small-hold farmers and schoolteachers, to participate in targeted ecological restoration. Silvi’s digital measurement, reporting, and verification system track a range of metrics, from the growth stages of trees to specific environmental attributes like “mother trees,” using geolocation, timestamp, and image files. These nature-positive activities are linked to direct incentive payments, adding a financial impetus to conservation efforts. Silvi aims to automatically distribute incentives for tree and biodiversity monitoring and contributions to citizen science. Their goal is to incentivize stewardship and provide real-time, verifiable data that lends credibility and scale to grassroots conservation activities.
