We can all feel it. Instinctively many of us try and reach out to do something positive. Often, those efforts seem to hit a brick wall. We see problems. We hear and read rumors about solutions, but nothing ever seems to trickle down into the hands of the people. We feel stuck fifty years in the past.
Despite the computer revolution, cars got better fuel efficiency in 1975. The batteries that power them are using technology created during World War I. What’s the disconnect? And how can we re-wire the planet? How can we bring invention and innovation, sustainable solutions and a concern about our future directly to the inhabitants of Planet Earth?
The key is collaboration and innovation–Enter PlanetShifter.com
By gathering new idea-driven artists, writers, musicians, and inventors, PlanetShifter.com sets the stage to be more than a face forum, creating what we call an “innovation network”. Connecting green and innovation to those who can spread the word is a key element not found in current social networks. We are creating an action network, a proactive group of doers and speakers. A SmartGroup of creative souls that bypass the din of a failing mass media.
