Use the internet to change the world

The internet is a wonderful resource that is so often wasted. It has changed how we get information, how we communicate and interact with the outside world. It has the power to change things. So, about once a week or fortnight, I shall link you to a website that I think can help do that. They will be tagged with 'websites' and 'world issues' to make it easier for you to find them.

Today, you're extra lucky, as I'm going to link you to two sites.

The first is It aims to put fairer trade back on the G20 agenda. The G20 is taking place in London on 2nd April. For more information about the G20 London Summit go here. So go to that site and egg a politician.

The other is It is an online petitioning site that sends emails to politiians about certain issues. This week it is petitioning to free the pro democracy prisoners of Burma, including one of my heros, Aung San Suu Kyi.

Check those sites out, and if you have any suggestions of your own send them to me.
