the chance to connect really interesting people around the globe. During the outreach for WiserEarth I contacted journalists, bloggers, professors and people from different NPOs and explored topics of interest (fair trade, climate change, indigenous

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

truly PASSIONATE about what they do. Many volunteers are in different parts of the world and have very international and interesting experiences. At the Sausalito headquarters, we played 4-square during the breaks and had a really team-oriented culture.

Ways to make it better...

people and organizations at the grassroots level could have more access to Internet to be able to take advantage of what Wiserearth offers.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the collective can change the world and Wiserearth is actively putting the movement for those who care about the earth and people. Every each of us will make a tremendous difference, so be active and join the movement!
