Planet Forward is an online social network where creative and innovative ideas addressing global challenges are featured, discussed, and evaluated. Showcasing original video, blog entries and commentary, this social network invites participation and opinion from citizens and policy-makers, students and experts, advocates and practitioners. Contributors with the most promising and original ideas will be featured on a national TV show. Those contributors with the top ideas will be selected as Planet Forward Innovators and get a shot at implementing their idea on an ambitious scale -- seeing if they can truly affect change regionally or nationally. Currently Planet Forward is addressing the question: How can we (as individuals, organizations and/or communities) reduce our collective carbon footprint? <br /><br />Planet Forward is a project of the Center for Innovative Media at the George Washington University.
