Worum es bei uns geht
Blockchain for Social Good Berlin meetups are curated by Positive Blockchain. We believe that the ever-growing blockchain community of Berlin would benefit from connecting with the social impact practitioners, who could help to validate blockchain solutions.
The aim of our meetups is to promote a blockchain technology among the social impact practitioners (be it the academia, think-tanks, NGOs, international NGOs, or public sector agencies). We want to bring together Berlin’s two distinct, large communities: tech and third sector, to facilitate a knowledge-sharing platform for the blockchain and social impact practitioners in order to advance the success of positive blockchain projects.
In the same way, the 3rd sector experts could benefit greatly from familiarizing themselves with this new technology that has a potential to disrupt many areas of their expertise: from a digital identity for the undocumented, unbanked and homeless populations, to transparent supply chain that safeguards the workers, and decentralized energy markets.
Each time we will explore one topic and bring together ‘real-world’ organizations and participants working on blockchain technologies. The idea is to open every event by explaining the problem from the real-world perspective (e.g. 1bn people without identity) and to continue with the blockchain projects presentations, which offer some solutions to the problem. This will create a good foundation for the panel discussion between blockchain projects and the topic practitioners, who can provide their non-technical feedback and use the SDGs guidelines to discuss the social impact of solutions.
As a result, the practitioners from the third-sector (or public) will be introduced or familiarized with blockchain technology through the use-cases related to their field of practice. On the other hand, blockchain projects will gain valuable “market” feedback from the field experts, which could lead to improvements or pivots in their solutions.
The meetups are organized by PositiveBlockchain.io in cooperation with BerChain, GIZ Blockchain Lab and Impact Hub Berlin.

Carbon or Environmental credits have existed since decades and started to see a growth in adoption and attention in the past year because of their potential to solve some of our burning climate change issues. However, the current market are frequently judged opaque, unorganised, and fragmented.
Entrepreneurs and creatives in the blockchain and web3 space have seen opportunities since 2016 to address some of these issues. With the increase in maturity and democratization of technologies such as Smart Contracts, Tokenization, NFTs, Oracles, DAOs, and more, a real ecosystem has emerged in the carbon x web3 space.
We can now count hundreds of projects active in the carbon value chain, whether it is in the origination of funding of environmental projects, data verification (dMRV), tokenization and trading, or offsetting.
Where are we in 2013? How does the ecosystem look like and what are the current trends and challenges? Is the web3 approach solving or adding more fragmentation? Is the idea of a unique environmental token a good or bad one?
Join us in this exciting meetup to dive more into the web3 x carbon space.
Whether you already know about this market, are a carbon or ReFi expert or are new to it, come to the exclusive opportunity and get to know the community!
