People Power!

The general election has come and gone. Fists were clenched and tears were shed, but now it’s time for us to pull ourselves together and get back to work.

For the past week, we have been working on significant updates to the website. Our strategy now is to focus on Events and Actions, and Individual Profiles. We have made it easier for volunteers to upload content. We have also made it possible for Individuals and Organizations to collaborate by creating joint Actions or Events. In detail, here’s what we have:

Awesome Update #1:
We have built the functionality to enable volunteers to create Actions and Events through the front end, and attribute it to the organizer. This helps to take the load off our over-worked and under-staffed NGOs. Volunteers will get a special mention under every post that they create, that links back to their Individual Profile. Credit is given where credit is due.

Awesome Update #2: 
Now, Profiles can share ownership of an Action, Event, Article or Announcement. We did this to make it easier for people – especially individuals – to collaborate. If you want to gather a bunch of friends to do a good action, now you can, without making an Organizational Profile.

Awesome Update #3:
We have redesigned the frontpage layout so that Individual Profiles get more visibility. More power to the people!

Our goal is to map out all the happenings in Malaysia, and for that we need your help. By the next GE, MESYM.com will have a comprehensive network of environmental movements mapped out, so that we can amplify the voice of civil society, and support Malaysians to push for a greener election agenda.

Help us make it happen. Volunteer today at MESYM.com.
