Karrot

[Karrot]

Karrot started as a free and open-source tool to support grassroots initiatives that save and share food waste, but it has been gradually re-designed to become a more general purpose tool to support various groups of people in their face-to-face activities on a local, autonomous, solidarity-driven and voluntary basis. Some of its defining features are the self-assignment of tasks, full transparency of members' actions and no admin roles, using a trust-based system instead. In order to better support the diverse ways in which people self-organize and practice commoning, this project will further develop features focused in the needs of end users through a participatory design process. We will work with the themes of collective agreements, role assignment and going beyond group boundaries for organising, which includes exploring options for federating. The same way we envision the software to be used, we will continue to work for the governance and organisation of Karrot project itself to be community-driven, transparent and democratic.
