Environmental Collaboration & Intelligence Network (ECIN)

ECIN is a non-fragmented reporting and data system for environmental activists to unify their efforts to expose habitual offenders and to identify and resolve current and imminent threats.

Credible environmental threat information leads to effective and efficient counteractions.

ECIN has a Unique ID and Category function which allows for activists to personalize reporting and monitoring which continuously grows the database for trend analysis and tracking people of interest.

Why Use ECIN

Destruction of the natural environment, especially when willfully done. Read more about Ecocide - Its meaning, its history and laws.

Environmental Threats

Fresh Water

Globally, rivers, lakes and wetlands are being severely damaged by human activities and are declining at a much faster rate than terrestrial ecosystems. Pollution may be caused by faecal waste, chemicals and pesticides.

Pollution

Pollution crimes endanger our health and safety. The air we breathe becomes severely contaminated, illegally dumped waste contaminates agricultural lands and toxic materials pollute water supplies.

Marine and Ocean

Crimes resulting in harmfully modifying the natural equilibrium of the sea and its wildlife. Scientists suggest that by 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in the oceans. Illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing.

Human Impact

Modifying the environment to fit the needs of society has severe implications. These include global warming, environmental degradation, mass extinction, biodiversity loss, ecological crisis, and ecological collapse.

Biodiversity, Wildlife & Plants

It is estimated that 68% of the world's wildlife has been lost. A May 2018 study (PNAS) found that around 80% of wild and marine mammals, 50% of plants and 15% of fish have been lost since the dawn of human civilisation.

Climate Change

Increasing use of fossil fuel exploration, extraction, distribution, refining, and combustion in power plants & motor vehicles & advanced farming practices have resulted in massive alteration of the global carbon cycle.


What We Know

Despite the best and tireless efforts of global institutions, academia, dedicated NGOs and a growing, committed band of individuals and corporations, environmental degradation continues at an exponential rate. On every known metric; we are worse-off today than we were yesterday, less resilient today than we were last year and more incapacitated in our ability to respond today than ever before – we are crossing boundaries that will lead to the collapse of the ecosystems we know, love and that sustain life. 

WATCH!

Why We Fail

Inexplicably, we have failed to present a coherent plan of action to even begin to address the challenges we are faced with environmentally and our current, combined actions are not relevant to the enormity of the problems confronting the planet. Incomprehensibly, in the last few decades we have failed to significantly alter our methodologies aimed at tackling environmental degradation, notwithstanding major advances in research and technology.

Why are we failing despite having the tools at our disposal?

The people with the resources lack proximity to the devastation around us – it is in proximity that we find purpose and willingness to do uncomfortable things (Bryan Stevenson – Global Leadership Summit 2017);

Real-time big data and analytics are not centralised – relevant and effective solutions require the verifiable intelligence being  immediately available, perception, comprehension and prediction in order to properly understand a situation and make informed decisions.

We lack courage – our inaction stems from fear and apathy and, in order to switch from always being on the defensive to taking an offensive strategy, we must forge an informed community of courage (Gary Haugen – International Justice Mission).

What We Need

Proximity, Real-time Data and Courage

Proximity – we need a platform that enables people to come into virtual contact with the horror of what is happening around the world, to be encouraged to find the willingness to get physically proximate and to fully understand their own impact on the environment.

Real-time Big Data – the approach towards solving current and future challenges includes a collaborative methodology as well as a joint understanding of the problems at hand. ECIN will focus on real-time analytics that enables the use of all data (current and historic) for dynamic analysis. Additional, external systems or platforms must also be linked to process all possible data in order to provide richer analyses and predictive capabilities.

COURAGE!

People of courage are needed now like never before; not only do we fear the consequences that standing up to power will have on our lives and comfort, we also, justifiably, fear that we will stand alone.

ECIN requires individuals of courage and resilience to support and engage with a collaborative platform that will, for the first time, unlock a community of courage for the environment. We need to do something that has never been done before in order to introduce disruptive technologies into current systems to ensure sustainability for all creation.

This is an excellent example of Real-Time Big Data and how it contributes to awareness and combating environmental abuses.
