Online Communities that Drive Offline Action for the Environment - #15NTCdriveaction

Confronting today’s environmental challenges, such as climate change and water sustainability, will require the environmental movement to respond with an unprecedented level of creativity and energy. Command and control campaigns, centrally-organized and pushed to the grassroots, are not sufficient to unleash the scale of response needed to be successful.

The National Wildlife Federation and Sierra Club have developed online communities that provide a platform for interested community members to connect with one another and take action on campaigns or local environmental sustainability projects. Panelists from these organizations will share what they are learning through building these communities. Small World Labs, a leading online community provider for nonprofit organization, will provide an overview of some of the technological tools available and measurable results achieved by other causerelated communities that could be beneficial to environmental leaders.
