Once you register, taking action and earning points results in badges for your profile (see below), accolades, and soon, more real rewards. Your actions become part of your identity, eventually something you can add to your resume. We call it “target actions” because the actions help to reduce emissions, increase human connections and/or increase community resilience.
We want to partner with community businesses and organizations to set up target actions in the real world or on the site that are sponsored by the organizations (contact us about becoming a community partner). [Note: You don’t have to worry about points at all if you don’t want to.]
- It’s possible to use points in your own groups or families; for example, if a mom wants to set up target actions for her kids to change behavior around the house, she can do that. It’s possible to transfer points and we can help people set up things like that.
- Schools can set up target actions for their students. The students can be awarded or get extra credit, for example.
- Business can set up target actions for their customers. They may offer points or they could give out coupons, for example. It’s a way to work together on the challenges that face us all.
It’s also possible to earn other rewards through target actions. Some target actions may have certificates or other compensation.
