A lot of things need to be taken care of on this planet.
A lot of crisis is taking place without us knowing. In recent years, several unbearable situations have become visible, but unfortunately there are more!
Only when we know and feel can we act and correct the problems. When well orchestrated, public voice can trigger amazing positive results!!!
This list shall serve to shed light on important human, social, environmental, animal etc. issues.
A CRISIS ALERT can be a commented link to an ARTICLE.
An ACTION ALERT takes it a step further: it empowers for some action.
For an example, see this article
referring to this online campaign http://savethekangaroo.com. It includes information on the issue and action examples, such as demos in front of adidas stores, writing to politicians, boycotts etc.
In the bigger picture, Online Campaigns and Action Alerts are examples of a new dimension of active, responsible citizenship within the frameworks of democracy. When taken to, facilitated and amplified through the internet, we like to call it NETIZENSHIP.
Originally, "Netizenship" means the "contribution to the development of the internet" (such as wikipedia) but concerning "positive change", we apply this term to exercising the citizen's political stakeholdership; without it, there will be NO significant positive change. Therefore we wish to amplify the potentials of Online Campaigns and Action Alerts.
Contributions to this list have a good chance for publication in PNYV! E-zine for empowering youth worldwide to give expression to their priorities. We are developing A World Citizen Power Station with how-to's etc. at
OK, Let's Start the Action!
