|Summary of Plan
1. Carve the world up into manageable blocks of countries
2. Seek volunteers for each of the various regions
3. Have a thread for each region where information could be posted
4. Links in the News Summary to those threads that are ‘active’ with events going on of interest to others
What does it involve if I volunteer?
This means you are willing to commit some time on a reasonably regular basis to research the region and gather news stories or situation updates. This means finding and tracking local news sources and government agencies for anything that is going on.
If you live in a particular region it might be better to volunteer there and use local knowledge – but we do not need 500 volunteers for the USA! There may be some language barriers to overcome as well, so if you are multilingual, please can we exploit these skills.
If you have children who are internet savvy and you would like them to increase their geographical knowledge etc., why not make it a family project?
