Hurrah hurrah! MESYM 3.0 and its new features!

After months of development and many sleepless nights, the new website is finally ready! Needless to say, we are stoked. Hurrah!

Although the interface did not change drastically, the system behind was completely rebuilt to support some swanky new features that we thought the community might like. These improvements include:

1. A Volunteering Platform
Now projects and events can specify if they need volunteers. And of course, if you’re interested to volunteer to help save the environment, watch this space as more and more organisations enter their volunteering information. (For organisations: if you offer any volunteering opportunities, please log in to the website to update the information!)

2. Stories
The Stories section was built to let volunteers and event-goers tell stories about the projects and events that they participated in, as to inspire more people to engage in offline action. Write your story and share your pictures with the world!

3. At the tip of your fingers
You may have noticed the handy filtering that happens everywhere on the website, to ensure that information arrives to you as soon as you type them.

4. Mobile-friendliness
Finally we have a website that looks decent in smaller screens like mobile phones and tablets. Try it out!

5. Preview your posts
You are now able to see previews of your posts while awaiting moderation from the admins.

6. A makeover
We’ve moved things around a little bit, so do explore the website to see the cosmetic changes in place. We’ve also changed some of the header names to make things clearer. “Action” has been renamed to “Projects”, and “Articles” to “Discussions”.

There are a couple of missing things at the moment and we’re still working to add them: the comments section is missing for the time being, but it will be back very soon! and we need to translate the website into Malay. If you’d like to help or have any questions, contact us at
Lastly, if you like our work, please help by spreading the new MESYM website to as many people as possible! Tell all your friends! The more people we reach out to, the bigger difference we will be able to make.
