Launching This Week: A Global Network of Idealists - at Idealist.org
It’s time to build a global network that will serve and support all those people who want to make the world a better place, online and in person.
This is the idea that has always grounded and fueled our work. We believe that all over the world people and communities face three common challenges:
* There is often a big gap between our good intentions and our actions.
* Our problems are connected, but we are not.
* The world is full of good ideas that don't spread quickly enough.
What we need, then, is a network, a movement, an ecosystem that will:
* Make it easier for people and organizations to move from intentions to action.
* Connect people, organizations, and resources in every possible way.
* Find good ideas wherever they are, and distribute them as widely as possible.
If we can do this, and do it well, most of our local and global challenges will be easier to deal with.
