Hope Plus – promoting social projects online
Buzz is starting to build around a new web portal called Hope Plus, aiming to offer online tools for social projects. Although still being created, the site is described as “a place where people can meet, congregate and participate..to change the world online”. The portal will be multi-lingual and consist of a range of activism tools, projects will consist among others of web 2.0 ways to fight pollution and build schools. Both the content and how the portal develops will be user-generated/lead. Companies such as Microsoft, Monster, Cisco and IBM are participating in its creation. The site is planned to go live during the Copenhagen climate change conference.
