I worked with WiserEarth over the course of five years while I was on the Craigslist Foundation team.

The first thing I noticed about WiserEarth was their inclusiveness. Before they had even launched their sustainability directory, they were actively engaged with organizations in the
field about how to shape the directory to the needs of the world. This commitment to listening and engagement is an integral part of their DNA, and I think it's one of the reasons they have thrived.

Their smart team, led by Peggy Duvette, executes great ideas well - and it's always in a conversation with their community. Whether it's revisions to the WiserEarth platform or the creation of in-person meetups or expanding the number of languages WiserEarth offers, it's all done in partnership. That's a difficult and admirable path to take.

My last major collaboration with WiserEarth showcased their transparency and commitment to collaboration. In creating the LikeMinded platform for Craigslist Foundation, solutions to community problems that WiserEarth members had shared were included on LikeMinded pre-launch. Working with Peggy's team was a pleasure. Their responsiveness, their willingness to share, and their desire to spread the impact of their work (and that of their community members), made our job that much easier.

WiserEarth is to my knowledge by far the most comprehensive network of NGOs throughout the world, and one that has powerful tools for collaborating, sharing resources and generally providing ways to synergize our collective strengths.

WiserEarth is an online community linking those who work to make our world more sustainable. I have been a member since September 2008. I have found that WiserEarth is a great opportunity to connect with other like minded individuals who are movers and shakers, all over the globe. I have shared my own writing, projects, and ideas and received invaluable feedback and support from colleagues around the world. WiserEarth charges no fees for its users. It provides an excellent supportive environment for me and others to move forward in healing the earth, to share our ingenuity, integrity, and innovation.
