Climate change, social injustice, access to education: now more than ever, the complex challenges and pressing issues our societies are facing globally can only be tackled through unprecedented cooperation. We already live in an interconnected world where technology has become an essential part of everyday life and allows for new forms of collaboration. A number of staggering for-profit online communities have already been established. However, many communities aiming for social good are struggling to replicate such successes due to a lack of funds, experience and skilled support. Let’s use the power of technology to strengthen online communities, collaborate beyond borders, missions or time zones, and create positive change together.
