Creating circular economies by rewarding responsible behavior
The World Bank predicts that by 2025, global urban waste will increase by 70%. Without solid waste management, we cannot build sustainable and livable cities. Therefore, it is important that cities, especially in the developing world, create smart and efficient waste management methods.
Agora Tech Lab (ATL) aims to help cities create participatory waste management frameworks. By using our cutting-edge blockchain technology, urban dwellers can easily be compensated for their contribution to society in exchange for a local token that can be traded for governmental services.
We truly believe that with the advent of blockchain technology, the global community has the unique opportunity to create smart systems that help cities deal with population and waste growth. By letting local citizens take control over their own community and rewarding them for it, cities will become smarter and better places to live.
ATL's Core Principles
We believe that solutions for urban challenges can best be created on a local level. By implementing the right incentives, the self-organizing character of communities can be enhanced
ATL aims to create circular urban economies that are more self relient. Doing so, earth's resources can be used more efficiently, securing the wellbeing of future generations
We think that urban systems should be participatory, so all stakeholders in an ecosystem can engage with their urban context as much as possible, allowing for better city governance

Using technology to get there
Currently, ATL is running a demo version of its Waste Management System on the Ethereum Protocol. Ethereum is a blockchain technology which can be used to settle payments.
Through an app, participants are represented by blockchain addresses which perform transactions directly between one another.
In the future, participants of the Waste Management System are able to receive or send their tokens easily through the ecosystem, contributing to the development of a circular economy.

´´Companies using blockchain in the Netherlands are working with public agencies to reward people for recycling with cryptocredits that can be exchanged for goods or services. Agora Tech Lab, for instance, has created an ecosystem in which it can indelibly record each member’s waste management transactions using blockchain. This system makes the reward structure easier to implement.´´
