For CS backgound & charters click this blog.Please help with a survey. When people talk of civic society organisations or world citizen networks, which do you think of, or which one have you volunteered most time to?.

If you have more survey time: please also bookmark organisations or networks which you understand to classify themselves as concerned for citizens, or tell us which people you believe we should ask for their favourite examples of citizen groups because they are known to advocate this emerging type of organisation as helping humanity design a globalisation that will sustain everyone with urgent attention to those with the most desperate needs or parts of the globe where nature is becoming destabilised.




Thanks Josep. It's a great cluster of a particular type of CS movements which people are spontaneously forming.

My overall interest is in openly bridging all clusters. Though I love spotting emerging possibilities to : is http://www.leadersquest.org.uk a CS organsiation or a catalyst (an oscars for) rewarding many of the best?

At http://civil-society.blogspot.com we have found it is possible to track a different sort of world news - by googling news on "change the world"; we will aim to transfer civic societies mentioned in this newsfeed into the quicktopic survey.

Here is installment 1 - on the day the mass media was covering the start of the world cup for football spectators, the action network news for humanity focused on cs initiatives like these:
The Albery Foundation http://www.ac026.dial.pipex.com/NAF/History.htmland its book 500 ways http://www.globalideasbank.org/site/store/...l.php?articleId=178

I have been keeping a directory of world citizen organizations (selected with rather wide embracing criteria) that you can find at http://cwc.editme.com/links. It was intended as an open share resource that could be embedded into a number of different websites. But the idea has not really taken up.

Please help with a survey. When people talk of civic society organisations or world citizen networks, which do you think of. Please either bookmark organisations or networks which you understand to classify themselves as concerned for citizens, or tell us which people you believe we should ask for their favourite examples of citizen groups because they are known to advocate this emerging type of organisation as helping humanity design a globalisation that will sustain everyone with urgent attention to those with the most desperate needs or parts of the globe where nature is becoming destabilised.

Example: I am particularly keen to catalogue civic society organisiations nominated by those who have spent most of their life's advancing specific arenas of social entrepreneurship and especially these 6 people who have been recognised for especially deep humanitarian progress http://www.ashokastore.org/store/index.cfm....display&page_id=18
I will try to clarify more details on these 6 peope at http://wwintat.blogspot.com Why Was I Not Told About That?
