Wiser Earth embraces /open standard

I am very pleased to welcome the latest addition to /open. Wiser Earth is a nonprofit organization maintaining an online platform that  ”helps the global movement of people and organizations working toward social justice, indigenous rights, and environmental stewardship to connect, collaborate, share knowledge, and build alliances.” The data being shared on the platform by members is published using Open Data, as explained on their /open page at http://www.wiserearth.org/open.

The use of /open by Wiser Earth is exactly what I had in mind when I created /open in the first place: informative and clear /open page following our guidelines, well placed Open Data link in the site footer linking to it, strong blog post introducing it all to their community, and /open badge and links back to slashopen.net to help spread /open. I’m pleased to include Wiser Earth in the /open Directory.

I will be making another round of improvements to the slashopen.net site soon – please keep us on your radar and let me know if you have any feedback at all or would like to contribute. Also welcome inquiries about the /open standard and going Open Data anytime.

And now a screenshot of the Wiser Earth /open page:
