GOAL

The page main goal is to centralize the scientific knowledge related to the sargassum phenomenon in order to provide the correct information to develop sustainable solutions by the same scientific community as well as the civilian and governmental sectors, as well as avoiding duplication on research, expenses or failed tests.

BACKGROUND

Keep in mind that during unknown scenarios (at crisis or disasters) the main source of new problems is caused by the quick response without scientific guidance that triggers, lead and boosts worst scenarios.

 

To avoid this situation at the Sargassum phenomena we need to provide the latest information scientific information that will help to the development of "sustainable solutions" understanding that no new problems will be generated.

GUIDANCE

The sequence of the interaction in the strategy is the following:

 Scientific information leads to civilian participation leads to sustainable public policies

Before we go to the specific profiles needs, we have to consider three ways of participation according to the official authority :

Non-Officilal.- This page should be owned by the scientific and civilian community and the only condition to do so is that the uploaded information meets the "sustainability" condition which means it has the scientific background to avoid new problems when is used in the field as practices.

Official.- Even when at the beginning country´s government might not participate we need to open them an space, so when the website becomes representative, they can easily find the structure to participate (as it already happens with France), instead of proposing their own structure.

 

STYLE

The main page that will always remain as the community page, need to be managed under a "News page" where people easily find,  attractive latest information.

In the main page, we shall show the best, outstanding information, practices etc. reached by each sector of the community,

"We need to constantly remember that the power of ORGANIZATION relies on PARTICIPATION and for that,

we need UNIFICATION".

SCIENTISTS

USER PROFILES NEEDS

The key is in classification and unification along the page architecture, with a powerful but easy search engine

INTERACTION MODE

NEEDS

1. SCIENTISTS

we are expecting the feedback from the scientific community

1.1 RESEARCH

  • Here we will find scientists acting under their discipline, without the need of nationality or institutional accreditation.

  • In this section, they will be able to discuss "ongoing investigations "

  • The work in progress can be public or private as the leader of the discussion decide, but at all times will be understood as "nonconclusive" work.

  • They need to easily find whats has been discovered and discussed in the category they are working at.

  • They need to VERY EASILY to follow any changes and participate in the "Chat Room" of the category/discipline they are interested in.

  • They need to be able to participate and easily find what they have posted, comment and posted

  • They need to be able to find and interact with colleagues, without compromising personal data.

  • They need to be able to publish/edit / delete their own professional profiles.

  • They need to quote others colleagues, link articles,

  • They need to upload/edit/delete images, videos, audios, and documents.

  • They might need different levels of security for interaction (I am not sure we should provide this as the page should remain as an open discussion platform).

  • They should be able to make/edit/delete internal teams (groups) for discussions just as Whatsapp works.

1.2 PUBLICATIONS

  • This is the place where scientists will be able to publish their conclusive work.

  • Any person can have access to this section and will be considered as the main source of information that should reflect the latest advances of scientific knowledge regarding the sargassum phenomenon.

  • They need an easy but secure platform to publish there public papers (conclusive work), in the correct classification.

  • They need to give credits add authors, nationality, link pages and other works used in the publication.

  • They need an internal vote platform so when an investigation becomes outstanding, the whole community can vote to publish it on the main page of the website and in the proper country/institution.

  • They need to easily find /edit /delete publications but leaving a tracking path so if any other user try to find changes or a document after it has been deleted, he/she can easily understand the modification path.

  • They might need a forum to receive comments from the readers and start discussions, solutions, etc. from the article.

CIVILIANS

GENERAL 

INTERACTION

Here we will find people searching for information for non-specific purposes such as general culture, academic purposes.

We also will find people trying to develop solutions for general application.

For them the SEARCH engine is basic but understanding that the algorithm must run first through the civilian documents than scientific ones.

  • They need to easily find whats has been discovered in terms they can understand. The labor of the World Organization Institute will remain to be the translation of the scientific information into different comprehension levels of the civilian fabric.

  • We have to avoid at all times, excessive information in terms that the civil population doesn´t understand.

  • They need to easily upload, edit and delete posts, photographs, links, documents into the correct "civilian categories" (at this moment they are shown the website inside the "Civil Population" section in the main page, and inside each country under "02 Best Civilian Sustainable Practices". We have to consider that classification must be very few and easy.

  • They need to easily follow other members, follow their posts, comments etc.

  • They might need to be able to get in contact with scientists to ask for help, so let´s think in enable the option for scientists that are open to civilian interaction.

  • As in the scientific section we need to provide a voting platform so the best civilian sustainable practices can be published on the main page.

The need to understand what can the do with the phenomenon

CIVILIANS

SPECIFIC COUNTRY/SECTOR

Here we will find people searching for information according to specific interests, mainly determined by their local/regional reaches.

That is why we also need to open the country section because if for example, an entrepreneur is designing a solution first she/he will search for information according to her/his region of interest.

  • After reviewing the "general civilian information section" they will go to the specific country/sector to see what has been done and find some opportunities.

  • So the first thing they will do after understanding the phenomenon is to search for the best practices done in their sector and try to either adapt them to their particular situation or develop new ones from the reached point.

  • They need to be able to upload their projects with documents, photos, multimedia, with the scientific background used during it´s development.

  • They need to follow other projects, find easily what they have posted, edited and delete it.

  • They need to be able to offer their products (by paying in kind of sponsorship).

  • They need to search for funds, joint-venture and guidance. 

Governments

As civilians, governments will search first for the latest scientific information in understanding terms.

Then, they will try to share with pride what they have done.

And eventually, they will try to copy other countries' public policies.

Our page should enable the public policies coordination through UN nd or OECD 

GENERAL 

INTERACTION

  • We need to let them understand the natural flow of correct implementation... Scientific knowledge - Civilian Participation - Best Sustainable Practices - Public Policies.

  • They need to enable official accreditations in an easy way.

  • They need to easily find whats has been discovered in terms they can understand. The labor of the World Organization Institute will remain to be the translation of the scientific information into different comprehension levels of the civilian fabric.

  • They need metric data to compare, so the platform should provide a section to be able to compare numeric information.

  • They need to easily upload, edit and delete posts, photographs, links, documents into the correct "civilian categories" (at this moment they are shown the website inside the "Civil Population" section in the main page, and inside each country under "02 Best Civilian Sustainable Practices". We have to consider that classification must be very few and easy.

  • They need to easily follow other members, follow their posts, comments etc.

  • They might need to be able to get in contact with other countries' colleagues to ask/offer help, so let´s think in enable the option for scientists and government personnel, that are open interaction.

  • They will need functionalities to publish special offers such as funds, contests, events, etc.

GOVERNMENTS

They need to find out what other countries are doing and compare with their own activities

Here, countries need to be able to find public policies in other countries and sectors, as well as publish their own from General to Particular regulations.

SPECIFIC COUNTRY/SECTOR

  • After reviewing the "general civilian and governmental information section" on the main page, they will go to the specific country/sector to see what has been done.

  • As civilians will run for best practices, countries will do so for best public policies, so we need to think in a way to provide a place for outstanding public sustainable policies.

  • They need to be able to upload their regulation with documents, photos, multimedia, with the scientific background used during its development.

  • They need to follow other uploads, find easily what they have posted, edited and delete it.

  • They need to be able to open contests, projects, funding offers, etc (by paying in kind of sponsorship).

  • They need to be able to make discussion groups (forums/chats) between all country members.

Miscellaneous

Media will act in the search for "the note", something new or official positions than can be used in their local interests.

The main goal of our platform is not to provide this kind of information but to avoid misunderstandings, which means that everything said in media without a scientific background will easily be discharged.

Media will come to our page to find useful and true information knowing that they can quote us to validate their notes.

We then should provide a special section for them to facilitate their job, inside which we publish official regulations and statements done by the country's governments, as well as innovations and the latest, discover scientific knowledge. 

MEDIA

As part of the coordination effort, international organisms with governmental authority such as the United Nations and the OECD, must be considered.

Our platform should provide space on the main page for them.

They should be able to post, upload, edit, follow and delete publications (documents, video, podcast) and events.

They should be able to open contests for funds and recognition.

They should be able to publish events at the calendar on the main page.

They should be able to get in contact with scientists, civilians and goverment colleagues.

INTERNATIONAL ORGANISMS

ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS

Academic Institutions must follow the same profile as scientists, except when they only need to get information for academic purposes (for example basic - mid education).

In this case, the platform should provide a space where didactic information can be uploaded in any format, can be found and used for educational purposes.

It should also provide the functionality of "getting in contact with"  scientists and other colleagues to coordinate conferences, guidances etc.
