We are about to see the launch of Greenopolis, the interactive, collaborative and educational “green” community Web 2.0 site that Waste Management and other partners are developing. Although built by WM, it is open source- open to anyone who has something to contirbute and want to participate. The website focuses on bringing together individuals, communities, organizations and corporations to help people learn, partner and make incremental, positive environmental changes in their daily lives and communities. Greenopolis is partnering with dozens, and eventually hundreds, maybe thousands of businesses, schools, non profits and governments to foster sustainable learning that leads to “green” behavior. Millions of incremental steps multiplied by millions of actors to really shift the game.
The site is getting lots of visitors, members and positive blogging.
You can a part of it. You can check out the site at www.greenopolis.com. Meet Liv Greene, oiur AIM bot/avatar, and engage in the site any way you like. Antich and dozens of other centers for higher ed are taking part. You can contact me on the site- my username is Greenopollis Joe, and I really want your feedback and suggestions. We’ve got a short time to save a big planet. We all need to move now.
