Remixing the web for social change

NetSquared has a very impressive collection of websites that in one way or another seek to secure and support social transformation. A PDF file lists all of them, but far more convenient and useful is to browser through the projects on the site itself.

There are a couple of known gems such as Martus, TakingITGlobal and Democracy Player, but there are also a few sites that I hadn’t heard of before, doing some seriously interesting and innovative stuff.

The only caveat – most of the sites are based in, and focused on, America and American issues. However, the manner in which the sites have been set up, and the issues they deal with – poverty, corruption, human rights violations, marginalisation, adult education etc – are deeply resonant in many other countries around the world.

This is a site that links to inspired thinking and inspirational websites. Visit it today.
