Can you imagine that we can unite all the activists of the world and through synchronized actions create a more inclusive and sustainable socio-economic culture?
NEOPLANET is the first environmental social network in Latin America that seeks to unite activists, organizations and sustainable businesses to boost their impact through challenges, participatory events and a system that motivates actions for the planet. Later we will explain how each of these options work, but first we want to tell you our story.
Hello, we are Fundación NEO, a non-profit organization that promotes sustainable development through science, technology and innovation. We are made up of an interdisciplinary team of people who think that changing the world is possible but, like many of you, we felt alone in the middle of a society that believes that things are the way they are. For some years we tried to create change individually, but it was very difficult. However, then we had the opportunity to meet, unite and promote activists at the local and national level generating important changes. This gave us a lot of strength and hope that there is a whole generation that wants to improve planet Earth, which tells us that we are not alone, the problem is that we are only scattered.
This experience made us realize that the solution is to come together and technology can help us solve this problem. That is why we decided to create NEOPLANET, the first environmental social network that is responsible for connecting activists, organizations and sustainable enterprises in order to accumulate actions and give them value in the middle of a virtual community. By making actions count, we can transform the world's culture and economy. Innovation can be the way to create a socioeconomic system that is based on the conservation of natural resources and not on the irrational exploitation of them.
We want to inspire through example and for that reason we created this project. Changing the world is possible and if we unite, the result will come faster. Because apart we are mortal, but together we are eternal.
NEOPLANET provides tools to increase the impact of our actions through three specific functions: challenges, events and a map of sustainable enterprises. We explain it below:
CHALLENGES.- The challenges screen offers the option of creating a personal challenge or meeting challenges created by other users. The challenges contain a name, category, description, steps to follow and the option to upload a photograph that, when exported, adds a frame with the respective ODS. The people who do the challenge appear within the album and are ranked according to the amount of “inspires me” they receive.
EVENTS.- the events screen offers the option of creating or attending nearby sustainable events. Events contain name, date, times, description, list of attendees and album. People who attend the event can upload a photo inside the album and are ranked according to the amount of “inspires me” they receive.
MAP.- the map screen allows you to find the location of sustainable businesses near your location. The businesses are classified by categories such as bike-friendly, eco-shop, veggie, and recycling point. In this way, we encourage businesses to join the actions for the planet and promote their reach by making them visible with a community of activists who now have the option of consuming healthy and accumulating actions by supporting sustainable businesses.
Through these functionalities NEOPLANET unites the environmental community where people find benefits, organizations increase their impact and businesses receive visibility with their specific target.
We invite you to join Generation Earth and be part of the solution, because global change begins with you.
