Connecting people dedicated to building a better world.
Thanks to Rolf Potts' Vagablogging, I found Idealist.org this morning, a site by Action Without Borders that "connects people, organizations, and resources to help build a world where all people can live free and dignified lives."
Idealistic indeed, but this week the site is launching a global initiative to unite people with similair interests and desires across the face of the planet. From February 5-11, there will be 273 meetings worldwide.
The premise for these meetings is the belief that there are many people in the world who share similair desires and visions of change. By providing the opportunity for these people to connect with each other and work together, be it through the internet or in person, "the world would be a different place."
Cynical? Maybe you should take a look at the organisations in your neighbourhood that are trying to achieve positive change.
