Perhaps you've already noticed the changes we've been making at RESET. What's it all about? Read on to find out.
For the last few weeks, our blog entries have revolved around projects, ideas and intiatives that implement information and communications technologies in various ways in order to contribute to environmental protection and work towards a more just world.
We have reported on mapping street harassment, using satellites to monitor outbreaks of violence in Sudan and South Sudan, using mobile technology to give a voice to indigenous communities and online tools for keeping tabs on the plastic in our oceans.
What's behind the shift? Recently, we have become increasingly enthused by the innovative, groundbreaking approaches to sustainable development that technology, particularly existing technology used in new ways, offers. Given RESET.org's digital homebase, we have recently been placing a strong focus on TIMES principles (Telecommunications, IT, Media, Ecommerce, Service Provider) and started working a lot more closely with this sector to report on the most engaging developments in this field. From here on out, we will provide information via RESET.org on innovative ideas and projects that offer smart approaches to our world's challenges as well as tips on how you can implement them in your lives. All this ties into our new tagline, "Smart Approaches to Sustainability!"
As our focus on providing information about sustainability strengthens and evolves, it facilitates the next step to realising a sustainable future: action. The time is ripe to develop and promote our own projects and support select social business models that are based on TIMES principles. Over the coming years, we will be combining our personal Know-How with the funding support of our network as well as the reputation of RESET.org for overall communication about these projects.

RESET goes international
Originally targeted towards India, our English-language platform will now take a more interational approach. Via RESET International, we will look to inform people across the globe about innovative TIMES solutions for social and environmental change and encourage people to take action. We wish to connect people, regardless of whether they're from India, the USA, Kenya or anywhere else, to collectively seek out innovative solutions – sustainable development is a global challenge that can only be tackled collaboratively.
