Meeting Notes 

  • Attendees: 15
  • Welcome new members, including new member introductions
    • Charlie Bushman 
    • Laurie Reynolds
  • Updates / needs from CA2SIG Working Groups
    • Standards WG
      • First draft of ontology is ready
      • Next step will be to test the ontology with a real-world scenario (e.g. personal carbon footprint accounting)
    • Climate Research WG 
      • Research prompt? - Overcome misconception that blockchain (rather than just Bitcoin and Ethereum POW) is energy intensive and environmentally harmful.- Si
      • Blog post or paper about this topic?
        • Blog post would be more high-level
        • Paper would be a more in-dept analysis of the numbers in terms of energy usage (kWh) etc.
        • comparison of energy uses for different types of blockchain?? Ressources saved by using blockchain (e.g. paper)??
      • Lam Nguyen presented the Climate Research Group and provided two directions we could research - Energy usage of blockchains and blockchain-based emission trading systems (cap and trade)
      • George Blumberg The current problem for students is that the scope seems infinite and it needs to be graspable for students. Having assignments ready that describe a project with defined outcomes could help a lot. 
    • Plan to create a Awareness and Capacity Building WG
      • Events to attend - List updated by CA2SIG members
      • Speaking Opportunities
        • CA2SIG presentation materials
      • Content / Articles
      • Planned guests invited to present at CA2SIG meetings
      • Diversity and inclusion project
  • Diversity and Inclusion findings / 2021 strategy
    • Sherwood Moore  proposed the idea to have representatives in the different regions over the world
    • Alfonso Govela suggests connecting with universities and high schools to increase diversity
    • Karolina suggests targeting directly associations of universities that already participate in the blockchain space
    • Kamlesh Nagware suggest reaching out to the Social Impact SIG and the regional chapters and also organizing a hackathon
  • Video campaign
  • Do we need meetings in different time zones?
    • Si Chen wants to reach out to the regional chapters of Africa, ASEAN, and Japan
    • Laurie brought up the idea to have a middle man in Europe to link the meeting in the different time zone (east - west)
    • First step will be to ask if people are interested in having meetings in a different time slot and evaluate the decision.
