Welcome!

On March 11, Idealist launched a new network—online and on the ground—to help people everywhere connect and take action on any issue that concerns them, locally or globally, online and in person.

The heart of this movement consists of people all over the world—called Connectors—who want to inspire and ignite action and collaboration in their communities.

If when you look at the world you see opportunity and potential all around you, please join us!

Questions

  • Is this network based on certain values?

    Yes. Working with others, in a spirit of generosity and mutual respect, we want to help build a world where all people can lead free and dignified lives.

  • What do Connectors do?

    Connectors focus on three big goals: making it easier for everyone in their community to move from intention to action; connecting people, organizations, and resources; and finding and spreading good ideas.

  • How much time do Connectors need to commit?

    This is entirely up to each person. You could take a few minutes to help one person take one good step forward, or you could devote as much time as you like to this work. The only thing that matters is your passion for connecting people, ideas, and resources.

  • What is a Team, and what do they do?

    Teams consist of Connectors in a geographic location who want to work together and support one another, online and in person.
