Enabling local impact economies

Kolektivo enables local communities to create and manage their own regenerative economy to fuel prosperity

Local communities are the best driver for positive change

Framework for prosperity

The Kolektivo Framework combines the latest digital innovations to create a framework that blends a native token, a community currency, local governance and impact measurement tools into one to create local impact economies.

The framework explicitly aims to empower local communities to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. While this framework focuses on a first pilot in Curaçao, it aims to scale to larger communities.

Kolektivo is an evolution of 3 years of active expirimentation and research

Kolektivo Grants

Kolektivo funds and supports projects that create a positive, and sustainable impact within our communities. We have defined six impact areas  intersecting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, keeping in mind Curaçao’s unique challenges and characteristics.

All Kolektivo Grants are reviewed in a transparant process where community members vote in a Blockchain application to determine if Grants are accepted or not.

Raised in Curaçao

The seeds and foundation of Kolektivo have been created in the Caribbean island of Curaçao.

For over 3 years, citizens of Curaçao have researched and piloted decentralized tools to reshape their island. So far, over 20 projects, ranging from tokenized food forest to governance research, have been facilitated.
