Taking Action in a Networked World- Avaaz
May 27th, 2008

Smartmobs would like to highlight the work of Avaaz.org, a new global web movement that has a simple democratic mission: “to close the gap between the world we have, and the world most people everywhere want.”


Technology and the internet have allowed citizens to connect and mobilize like never before. The rise of a new model of internet-driven, people-powered politics is changing countries from Australia to the Philippines to the United States. Avaaz takes this model global, connecting people across borders to bring people powered politics to international decision-making.

“Avaaz” means “Voice” in many Asian, Middle Eastern and Eastern European languages.

Take the time to check out Avaaz.org, an online community empowering individuals to take action world-wide. Avaaz allows people from around the world to come together and take concrete action concerning the great problems that confront our world such as climate change, peace in the Middle East, poverty, and human rights. Avaaz already has 1 million members from over 182 countries and has already begun to influence decision makers. Avaaz.org allows people to take action (in about 30 seconds) to make a real impact on the pressing issues of our world.
