BENEFITING: Project Drawdown
ORGANIZER: Project Drawdown
EVENT DATE: Nov 16, 2010
We face some of the biggest challenges of all time: waning natural resources, increasing poverty, climate change, and more, placing increasing pressure on our world.
More than ever, we need to connect the people who are making a difference. WiserEarth, a project of the Natural Capital Institute, is creating this essential space.
YOUR WISEREARTH DONATION WILL BE MATCHED!
Today, a generous foundation is MATCHING YOUR DONATION to support crucial funding for WiserEarth’s platform, up to $25,000!
This endowment will preserve the work of thousands on our forum, directory, and all of WiserEarth's resources for future generations, no matter what.
Over one million organizations around the world are working to help the earth (see a video on this: http://bit.ly/BlessedUnrest). But many of these problem-solving efforts are duplicated because they don’t know of each other’s work.
WiserEarth is the social network for sustainability, with 45,000+ members, 110,000+ organization listings, 8,000 resources, close to 2,000 community-led groups, and a free space to post jobs, events and best practices. It’s free to use and ad-free too.
WHAT LEADERS ARE SAYING ABOUT WISEREARTH
Read a letter from leaders in the sustainability movement including Paul Hawken and Bill McKibben: http://www.wiserearth.org/article/wisertogether
CONNECTING THE GLOBAL MOVEMENT
Tola Winjobi, a member from Nigeria, says, "WiserEarth has given those of us from the global South the rare opportunity of being a part of the big but yet small global village in terms of e-connectivity and especially creating a forum (free web forum) for us to share ideas with our colleagues up North."
Think of the incredible cumulative effect of thousands of connections across the world linking changemakers to the people and solutions they need.
HOW YOUR DONATION (ACTUALLY) COUNTS!
You can run all of WiserEarth for a day for just $16. We know times are hard… whatever you can spare makes a big difference. Don’t miss this chance to make your mark on a sustainable future.
