Creating a website or blog to help young people, particularly in developing nations, learn about and contribute to global sustainability

The world is in dire need of young people who make their living and buying choices based on models of equity, sustainability and compassion

  • Dec 11 2012: Not sure what the question here is but I think that creating another website with this idea in mind is not that great of an idea, what is needed more is to go and help further sites already developed with this purpose in mind.

    Dec 20 2012: Once again, thanks for the honesty of your comments guys, which prompted me to do some additional research into the sites and venues you mention. What I envision is a cool, hip, easily digestible site, using the media that kids relate to most, (which is, increasingly, NOT text) and frankly, I have seen few if any really good examples of this. So please, can you provide some examples for me - if I see one/some that meets this criteria, I would be happy to join in. Otherwise, I remain committed to co-creating it!
