S4 - Intent 3: “Spread Awareness of the Optimistic Vision”
Proposed Mission: Create and Maintain the ‘Optimism Vision Reservoir’
In nature, a reservoir is a place where water is collected and stored to be used when it’s needed. Drawing a parallel to this concept, the “Optimism Vision Reservoir” is intended to be a collection point for the diverse interpretations, expressions, and reflections of Optimism’s vision.
The objective of this mission is to develop and manage a curated Notion-based collection of diverse resources, aimed at deepening understanding and fostering engagement with Optimism’s vision and values.
This initiative will gather scattered yet valuable content, consolidating it into a robust tool for those wishing to explore and disseminate Optimism’s vision.

Please explain how this Mission will help accomplish the above Intent:
In regard to Optimism’s vision, we have The Optimistic Vision. This is our “manifesto” so to speak . but beyond these five paragraphs, different members of the Collective have already expressed themselves to detail this vision, to express their interpretation and what this means deeply or very concretely for them.
They did it in interviews, articles, conferences, podcasts, blogs, videos. At present, these different resources are scattered across various platforms.
The mission of the ‘Optimism Vision Reservoir’ is to gently gather these dispersed pearls, forming a hub of resources. This reservoir will be a useful tool for better sharing the essence of Optimism’s vision, potentially inspiring content creators, ambassadors, and community members along the way.
In practical terms, the mission entails creating a Notion site to consolidate and make these resources accessible. This involves
meticulously selecting resources, providing their contextual background, linking to the original document, and preparing summaries and text transcriptions for audio-visual content.
Beyond the core of Optimism’s vision (whose resources are currently not vast), the project also seeks to introduce content on broader concepts like ‘Public Goods’, ‘Impact curation’, ‘regenerative finance’,…
From these resources, a lexicon will also be created around the central terms and concepts of the Optimism vision.
This ‘Reservoir’ is intended to serve not just as a knowledge repository but also, ideally, as a platform that encourages deeper understanding, and content creation centered on Optimism’s values and vision.
This resource is naturally expected to evolve over the long term (let’s be honest, the resources are not plentiful at this time). It will be particularly crafted to integrate future additions, including the hopefully forthcoming content produced during Season 4 (Intent 3 missions.)
What makes your Alliance well-suited to execute this Mission?
In my day-to-day work as a health educator, I find enjoyment in analyzing, summarizing, and curating resources and documents, which aligns well with this mission’s objectives.
I’ve always had a keen interest in environmental and climate issues. In 2021, I became fascinated by the regenerative finance movement on Ethereum, largely inspired by the work of Kevin Owocki. Through this journey, I discovered Optimism and was captivated by its ambitious vision and the values it promotes.
Although I’m more on the introverted side, I take great pleasure in writing. Over the past few months, I’ve dedicated my time to learn about Optimism and absorb as much content as possible. I’ve collected some resources and content, but have yet to find the good channel to share them - this mission provide that opportunity.
While I’m new to contributing to the Optimism collective, I’ve designed the mission to be realistic, reflecting my current experience level, and I believe the grant amount requested is reasonable to start this project.
Please list a critical milestone:
Critical Milestone : Mission goal by end September : Completion of the first collection with at least 20 entries (documented, summarized, and accessible resources or lexicon concept ).
How should Token House delegates measure progress towards this Mission
Benchmark Milestone 1 (10th July 2023) The Notion site is designed, live and has its first resource presentation online. This includes a contextualized, summarized presentation of a first content resource (with a transcription available if it’s audio-visual content).
Benchmark Milestone 2 (15th August 2023): 7 resource contents are live and accessible on the site.
Benchmark Milestone 3 (15th September 2023): 15 entries presented.
How should badgeholders measure impact upon completion of this Mission?
KPI 1: Number of visits to the Notion site. :
Minimum (Achieved): 50 visits
Average (Good): 150 visits
Excellent (Top): 400+ visits
KPI 2: Number of pieces of content created by creators who cite, mention, or link to the Optimism Vision Reservoir.
Minimum (Achieved): 5 pieces of content
Average (Good): 15 pieces of content
Excellent (Top): 25+ pieces of content
KPI 3: Quantity and diversity of resources-entries within the collection (Lexicon terms included)
Minimum (Achieved): 20 entries
Average (Good): 30 entries
Excellent (Top): 40+ entries
Breakdown of Mission budget request: The 4,000 OP grant is primarily meant to fairly compensate for the time I’ll be devoting to this project, estimated at 6-8 hours per week. It will also cover the costs of a Notion subscription.
