Location-aware community self-organisation

Karrot is a tool to support grassroots community organizing. It is designed to enable community-building and a more transparent, democratic and participatory governance of groups. Some of its defining features are the self-assignment of tasks, full transparency of members’ actions and a trust-based role system that avoids all-powerful group admins. Karrot originates in facilitating food-saving and sharing initiatives but developed a wider scope of community support.

Equipped with a better understanding about the diverse ways in which people self-organize and practice commoning, we will further develop the existing roles and permissions system, add features through which groups can run polls and enact graduated sanctions according to their needs.
