Do you want to join our Covid19 Community Response? A breakdown of Edgeryders activities, roles, tasks and workflows

@noemi and @MariaEuler I’ll be present for the call! See you a bit later today.


*Mental Health and Surviving Boredom:

In Didi Asks we can offer free online rounds of our game to break the routine of work and ignite meaningful conversations.

Hoping to keep connecting even from the bubble.


My feedback from the open call at this point: I think we should have a weekly open response call, but we also need one for just the team to clarify and condense things.


Apologies for the delayed response! We have the Mid-Term Review meetings for both POPREBEL and FATIGUE this week, so all my energy is going into that at the moment. Perhaps we could touch base about this COVID-19 initiative after our Thursday call?


I am up for the call, to explore the options and see if I fit somewhere. I still don’t know where I could contribute most but I want to.

Interested in:

  1. Work/labour and mental health

  2. Crowdbuilding solutions and source stories

  3. Not sure yet, would like to join the discussion and see

Sure, good luck with the meeting!

It would also be useful for you and @jasen_lakic to pick from the weekly calls


@HadeerGhareeb thank you! You know I’m a fan of DidiAsks! I’m wondering if you would be able to join one of the calls I linked above? If you can walk the participants through your method then we can all agree on a process for the next weeks, and launch a call!


I will be joining

Hello, I am Yassine Metoui member of the young science association of Tunisia in the IT sector. Because of the circumstances that our country is experiencing, the association young sciences is developing a website which brings together several volunteers on an international scale so that we can help people in their quarantine, help perhaps in the form of donations or simply to answer questions proposed by visitors to the site. In other way the visitors of the site are people who seek answers to their questions or who need logistical help, as being volunteers we can even give food for those who cannot afford to buy or who cannot transport themselves. For this we need several volunteers in all the countries, we have already contacted the Red Crescent and several Tunisian associations and clubs and several communities from Germany, France, Mexico ect … if you are interested in this project please contact me contact as soon as possible and thank you in advance.


First story in from my end too:


@ichraf mentioned some groups that are already active in Tunisia. Maybe she has some contacts to see what they need help with?

Activity 3: Mental healthcare

Since peopIe around the world are experiencing isolation. I would like to share some interesting content about How to create a good habit:

The 1st Law : Make it obvious
1.1 Fill out the habits Scorecard. Write down your current habits to become aware of them.
1.2 Use implementation intentions:“I will [behavior] at [time] in [location]”
1.3 Use habit stacking:"After [current habit], I will [new Habit]
1.4 Design your environment. Make the cues of good habits obvious and visible.

The 2nd Law : Make it attractive
2.1 Use temptation bundling. Pair an action you want to do with an action you need to do
2.2 Join a culture where your desired behaviour is the normal behaviour.
2.3 Create a motivation ritual. Do something you enjoy immediatly before a difficult habit.

The 3rd Law : Make it easy
3.1 Reduce friction. Decrease the number of steps between you and your good habits.
3.2 Prime the environment. Prepare your environment to make future action easier.
3.3 Master the decisive moment. Optimize the small choices that deliver outsized impact.
3.4 Use the Two-Minute Rule. Downscale your habits until they can be done in two minutes or less.
3.5 Automate your habits. Invest in technology and onetime purchases that locj in future behavior.

The 4th Law : Make it satisfying
4.1 Use reinforcement. Give yourself an immediate reward when you complete your habit.
4.2 Make “doing nothing” enjoyable. When avoiding a bad habit, design a way to see benefits.
4.3 Use a habit tracker. Keep track of your habit streak and “don’t break the chain.”
4.4 Never miss twice. When you forget to do a habit, make sure you get back on track immediately.

Shared with love from the great book “Atomic Habits” Hope you will enjoy that steps :slight_smile:


@ayari.taha Taha thank you for this :slight_smile:

hey John, just seeing this now - not sure I understand what your question was referring to?

Hugi is this something you guys still need help with and if so with what? Plus - do people need to be Swedish speakers?
