Idealist.org to Launch Global Help Center Initiative

Idealist.org, the community-building Web site created by Action Without Borders, is preparing to launch a new initiative on February 5, the goal of which is "to build [a more] effective global network of people, organizations, Help Centers, and businesses" dedicated to finding practical solutions to social and environmental problems. Based on a number of simple but powerful assumptions — acting alone can be difficult; locals know best; to choose, we need to know what's available — the initiative will be launched with a series of face-to-face meetings at the community level and will precede from there. (To date, 57 meetings in 21 countries have been scheduled.) To learn more about the initiative, or to register to host a meeting, visit: http://www.idealist.org/meetings.
