  20. 20. How a local project can unlock ascending resources As a pilot project advances, localities can digitally record its milestones. Each milestone can earn “Freedompoints” redeemable (for example) in community microscholarships to spread skills, microvouchers to access telemedicine, introductory telework jobs, introductions to investors, and other pre-agreed benefits. 1x 1.  Individual shows active interest in radical abundance project opportunities Individuals 2.  Learning circles form to research the proposed new demonstration ventures 3.  Entrepreneurial schools & telecenters build valued skills through online 2x courses, and help jobseekers find projects in global markets for telework Learning 4.
