Why Are We Here?

There hasn't been a lot of activity in this group, which makes sense as this website is a brand new initiative.
EWB is in an interesting position as, with myEWB.ca, we don't need a new medium for discussion amongst ourselves. So then, what are we doing here?
Fix Our World is an open forum. You don't have to be a member of a social justice organization, you don't have to be from a specific area, you just have to be curious about the world, passionate about the issues facing society, or confused about what all this has to do with you and what you can do about it.
As a national organization, we as EWBers have an amazing opportunity to collaborate with chapters and members from across the country. This website is our opportunity to share what we do and who we are with people around the world. Maybe it just needs a little help getting off it's feet.

Welcome everyone to the new Fix Our World website!

This is a brand new initiative starting in Hamilton Ontario Canada. The goal of the site is to give individuals and organizations a venue to share ideas, collaborate, and spread the word on what's going on in our world and how we are going to fix it.

On your own page you can post what you have done, what you plan to do, what you'd like to do... anything!

Groups are for organizations and locations. Groups such as this one are for posting ideas, initiatives, and sharing what we as an organization are doing to help fix our world. Groups for about specific cities or locations are for sharing statistics on the city (poverty rates, pollution) and what people in that region are doing.

SO, if you have something to put up anywhere, don't hesitate to do so. And if you notice that your home city doesn't have a group yet, start one up! We're hoping this will become a global initiative, but we can't do that without YOU! Also, don't forget to check out other groups and individuals. Who knows what you might find out?
