Worldchanging Retrospective: Day 3
Article Photo

Five years ago, on October 1, we launched Worldchanging as a venue to find, discuss and imagine the world's most innovative solutions to the planet's most pressing problems. Since then, we've found a great and diverse global community of readers, won prizes and awards, put out a best-selling book, and published 8,500 stories about how to change the world. In the process we've not only grown substantially (becoming the second largest sustainability site on the web, according to Nielsen online) but gathered an amazing network of allies who are among the world's leading sustainability thinkers.

On October 1 of this year, we'll be announcing our next major project. We're incredibly excited to be taking the editorial work we've developed over these last five years to the next level, and we hope that all of you will join us in trying to make that work as useful and innovative as possible. On that, more to come.

In the meantime, we thought we'd use September as an opportunity to review what we've done so far -- a sort of Worldchanging greatest hits. All this month, we'll be highlighting the tools, models and ideas for building a bright green future that have inspired us so far.

Here are a few of our favorites from the very beginning:

Stepping up to the Great Challenge

Brazil’s Free Software Project and the Politics of Technology

The Future of the U.S. Military: An Interview with Thomas P.M. Barnett

Member Driven Advocacy Groups

The World-Changing Power of Efficiency

What Will it Take to Restore the Mangroves?.

SimCity: Not for Educational Use

The Open Source Movement

Exploring Space is Green

Your Cameraphone: a Harbinger of a Massive Social Transformation

The Year of the Tech Bloom

Radical Longevity

Weather Porn, Giant Squids and The Day After Tomorrow

The Power of Merging Engineering, Biology and Art: An Interview with Natalie Jeremijenko

What Will it Mean to be Human in the Future?

This piece is a part of our month long retrospective leading up to our anniversary on Oct. 1. For the next four weeks, we'll celebrate five years of solutions-based, forward-thinking and innovative journalism by publishing the best of the Worldchanging archives.
