Action Network

Whether you were signing a petition, signing up for email notifications for community events or a fundraiser for a good cause, it very well could have been powered by “Action Network”.

Action Network is an open platform that empowers individuals and groups to organize for progressive causes. They encourage responsible activism, and do not support using the platform to take unlawful or other improper action. They do not control or endorse the conduct of users and make no representations of any kind about them.

If you opt to partner with Action Network you’ll get access to a wide range of tools, including the ability to upload activists and subscribe them to your list, create custom-branded email and page wrappers, and more. The interface allows you to organize with other users to create petitions, events, ticketed events, forms, fundraisers, letter campaigns, emails, reports, queries and more!

This is pretty darn cool.

Citizen Science

 

Citizenscience.gov is an official government website designed to accelerate the use of crowdsourcing and citizen science across the U.S. government. The site provides a portal to three key assets for federal practitioners: a searchable catalog of federally supported citizen science projects, a toolkit to assist with designing and maintaining projects, and a gateway to a federal community of practice to share best practices.

Some of the projects include topics like Animals, Archeology and cultural, Biology, Climate and weather, Disaster response, Ecology and environment and many more.

Explore the 300+ projects in the catalog, follow the how-to: step-by-step process to plan projects with the toolkit, and join in with their community to learn more about what is going on!
