Proposal

Abstract

Replicate GovHack events oriented to Global South Communities to improve the governance capabilities at scale and generate more delegates and governors in these underrepresented regions.

Motivation

The Global South communities don’t have access to the necessary documentation and training opportunities to understand the web3 governance, something needed to become delegates and then web3 governors. This will reduce significantly the web3 governance gap that today exists and also fix the underrepresentation issues that the region faces.

Rationale

To reach this goals we need to involve local delegates with the support of GovHack (H/H team) to train the trainers and make Local First oriented events where the message (education, documentation and tools) will be directly given to the necessary actors which will be able to reproduce the GovHacks in an understandable way for each one of their own regions.

Key Terms

Local First, Train the Trainers, Global South, Scale

Steps to Implement

  1. Bootcamp for 10 GovHack Core Organizers.
    A selected group of 10 Global South leaders will be trained by H/H directly to conduct the necessary activities to reach the goals of:
    -Create the Study Program and Training Tracks for an Online GovHack training bootcamp.
    -Call for Global South Community Leaders to participate in an Online GovHack training bootcamp.
    -Execute the Online GovHack training bootcamp to select the 60 scholars from SEA, Africa and LATAM to participate in the IRL bootcamp in Mexico.
    -Execute the one day IRL Bootcamp to intensive instruct the chosen 60 scholars.
    -Conduct the necessary on-chain attestation to probe results & release funds.

  2. Two weeks Online bootcamp for 60 Global South community representants selection.
    An open call for South Global community leaders will be made to teach them about:
    -Web3 governance from 0 to 100.
    -Responsibility implications at conducting a GovHack event.
    -Necessary steps to get funded to run their GovHack using Questbook.

  3. Scholars intense bootcamp in Mexico
    In-situ 1 day event to prepare the 60 global south scholars to run the next 3 days GovHack event in Mexico as volunteers, making them ready to understand all the real implications of running a GovHack in a practical way, going from providers selection to students support. To be able to make this happen some steps are considered:
    -Exhaustive selection.
    -Clear attestation methods to probe scholars expenses.
    -GPT Agent to help on event development.
    -Outreach & Follow-up to maximize results: Local GovHacks.

  4. 3 days GovHack in Mexico for +200 web3 governance students.
    Invitation and talks in regional universities to conduct the first LATAM GovHack event onboarding 200 Law, Social and Computer Sciences last year students to participate in the event conducted by the 10 experts plus the 60 scholars plus H/H support.

Overall Deliverables & Successful metrics

-New Global South delegates
-New Governors!
-UETH.org (or similar) Governance Modules
-Contrast data with other GovHack events for supporting the focus in Global South
-Impact measuring: Successful proposals & new delegators
-Documentation in local languages
-How-To-GovHack GPT Agent
-Outreach & Follow-up to the local governance experts to complete local GovHacks: 20% of completed events in first 6 months will be considered a successful ratio.
