Susannah Vila writes about an opportunity to contribute to a new network for young digital activists:
The Alliance for Youth Movements (AYM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to identifying, connecting, and supporting digital activists from around the world. AYM’s website, Movements.org , will serve as a hub for discussion, resources, and news about digital activism around the world.
The website features a series of case studies. AYM case studies tell the stories of people or organizations that have identified and used new technologies to successfully address societal problems—particularly those who have bolstered their efforts with new technologies. In each case study, we present the challenge faced and describe the course of action taken to address it. We paint a picture of the activists or social entrepreneurs involved, describe the pitfalls and advantages of the steps they took to address the initial challenge, and evaluate the current state of their projects, discussing goals met, goals for the future, and unresolved issues. The broad goal of AYM's case studies is to identify tactics and lessons learned that will be helpful to other activists and social entrepreneurs around the world.
Below are some examples of social change projects that we have already written cases about:
