There have been a lot of press reports about a Florida Church that is planning on burning Korans on September 11, 2010. Our client, Human Rights First, one of the top human rights organizations in the world, is countering with a campaign of its own, asking people via their site, Facebook and Twitter for “10 Reasons NOT To Burn The Koran.” Hopefully, this positive effort will get as much attention as the one in Florida is.
Working with our client Rainforest Alliance and partners such as the European Union, the Nature Conservancy and USAID, we have just soft launched ResponsibleMarkets.org today. CS NMS led the design, development and launch of the site in anticipation of the Sustainable Forestry Conference that is taking place next week in China. The goal of this project and this site is to begin to galvanize the community prior to the conference, engage the community during the conference and most importantly, create a platform that allows the conversation to continue when the conference ends. The project involved working with clients and developers around the world including teams in Pakistan, China, and here in the United States. NING’s platform supports the community behind the site, and is one of the many projects that CS NMS has completed with NING; other examples include WeLoveBirds and The Live Free Or Die Alliance.
