Hello All,

I have just released the beta version of an online social network for the
conservation and devlopment sector, designed to make the work of
conservation and development just that little bit easier.


For NGOPOLIS  to be really effective, it needs to each a critical mass of
users. If you think this is something that you will find useful, I hope
that you will share it with your network.

Very best wishes,


Harnessing the power of online social networking for the conservation and
sustainable development sector

Inspired by the natural world, in which resilient, productive systems
thrive through diversity and connectivity, NGOPOLIS.com is a free online
initiative which will help consolidate the international conservation and
development community, providing a space though which field scientists,
professionals, academics, students, and organisations can:

- - Search for relevant peers or peer groups, projects, updates, data, and
images according to a wide variety of search parameters

   - Share knowledge, experiences, and expertise and tap into a global
network of support

  - Collaborate and share data; group profiles have a table function for
easy data collation

- Access global news from the sector through a comprehensive RSS aggregator

- Connect with funders and keep abreast of application deadlines and other

     - Communicate informally and in real time through an ‘instant
messaging’ function

  - Provide sustainable livelihood initiatives in remote communities with
access to an international market through an online ARCADE

   - Provide feedback and ensure that the site develops in line with the
needs of its users

As we continue to face environmental and socio-economic challenges, there
is no longer any need to ‘reinvent the wheel’ in the search for solutions.
By connecting the dots, we can capitalise on lessons already learned, make
use of discoveries that have already been made, and disseminate strategies
that have already proven to be effective.
