Mutual Aid Platform (MAP)
This is the landing page of the Mutual Aid Platform, or MAP - the place where members of Humans United in Mutual Aid Networks (HUMANs) share and exchange knowledge, tools, time, and materials. It's also where many of us manage our projects and make them visible to the world.
Mutual Aid Networks are a legal, social and financial framework to help people redesign their work lives, partially by creating more comprehensive and resilient kinds of sharing and exchange. We pool and steward value and reward good work with cooperative economic tools such as sharing, timebanking, price-based mutual credit, and cooperative saving, lending, and giving.
People can make a Mutual Aid Network cooperative for any purpose - it could be to feed everyone on the block, or a global travel/culture exchange, a regional watershed restoration, a group of friends wanting a work redesign, whatever - and we help each other make and use both the sharing and exchange tools and the social-legal processes for collective stewardship.
HUMANs is a global cooperative network. This website is the place for collaboration, sharing, and exchange among Mutual Aid Networks and their supporters. You can find participating people and projects here, and if you'd like to participate more fully please join the HUMANs.
