Electronic Environmentalism

3 02 2010

MoveOn, the progressive email petition website that was launched in response to the impeachment of Bill Clinton, is celebrating ten years of ‘people power’. Many have credited Barack¬†Obama’s successful presidential campaign to MoveOn’s ability to mobilise citizens from behind their computer/laptop/Blackberry screens!

The ‘British version’ of MoveOn is 38 Degrees.¬†It claims to be able to bring people together to create ‘real change’. If so, it has the potential to hold whichever Party is in government to account and move forward progressive environmental policies on our behalf.
