Online Community: your ideas
By Chris Littlecott
Update, December 2006. As the eagle-eyed among you may have noticed, we are still as yet to launch an E3G online community.
We’ve been continuing to think about how we can best implement an online community for third generation environmentalists, but for the moment the launch of the proposed E3G community is on hold: the calls on our time are so great at the moment that we need to find additional resources to take this forward.
If you’d like to connect with our work as we continue to ponder our next steps, then do sign up for our electronic newsletter. If you have particular interest or expertise in online communities, do get in contact.
In October 2006 we will be launching the first stage of our online community. Our aim is to provide (over time) a space where third generation environmentalists from around the world can come together to share information and collaborate on projects of mutual interest.
Over the next month or so, we’ll be working with our friends at Trampoline Systems to finalise the configuration of our planned online member directory. We’ll also be drawing up our plans for the next stage of the site development, where greater interactive functionality will become available.
If you are interested in becoming involved with the fledgling online community or have experience from other online networks we’d love to hear your views. In particular, we are interested in learning more about what you would find most useful - what would help you to connect and then collaborate with fellow third generation environmentalists?
