But why do we need WiserEarth? One million + organizations and millions of people around the world actively working toward ecological sustainability and social equality - issues that are systemically interconnected and intertwined. Our effectiveness to prevent harm and institute positive change undermined by our lack of collective awareness, the duplication of efforts, and poor connectivity. What is missing is a map and directory of this network, one that includes the necessary resources for communication and cooperation; in essence, an infrastructure through which to coordinate our efforts.
