Welcome to Our Green MediaWiki Network
- GreenPolicy360 -- Greening Our Blue Planet
GreenPolicy360 is an interactive online community designed to share green best practices.
The GreenPolicy360 network is a clearinghouse where you can find what works and 'repurpose' green policies and practices without ‘reinventing the wheel’. Take the green best practices offered via Topics and Categories and pass them along. Offer your green success stories and practical solutions by uploading your model green practices for all to use.
GreenPolicy360 organizes green, environmental success stories, models, prototypes and templates, proposals and initiatives, resolutions, laws and ordinances. All of the elements how to envision and create successful green campaigns are made available and easily accessed. Take the best green ideas, try them, share them and send them around via social media as guide lights, city-to-city, community-to-community, region-to-region.
Our site runs on a MediaWiki platform that is open source with content designed for sharing. Join in!

Change the World
We are changing the world, the way governments run, the way businesses run, the way the world works. We are bringing sustainable change that will positively impact all of our lives and our environments. GreenPolicy's blue-green waves ripple through our world. From local to global, green actions day-to-day in every community are acting to change the world for the better.
At the Beginning
SJS: GreenPolicy360 began as a project proposed to the Green Institute by your GreenPolicy siterunner. At the time I was a co-founder of the Green Institute and its publishing director. As envisioned, our GreenPolicy online network set out to be a GreenLinks network and online source of shared green 'best practices'. Our goal imagined green policies flowing into practice, from local to global, a kinetics of action and dynamic change.
Green Institute's director, Dean Myerson, and the advisory board including Bill McKibben who was about to begin his "Step It Up" global warming campaign and 350.org, said "Go, greenlight" to the original GreenPolicy best practices online network. We launched!
In 2006, our first test version site went online in beta.
By 2008, we had expanded our wiki network, renamed as 'GreenPolicy360' and Green Institute transferred its .net/.com/.org domains and oversight to our current green team and wiki cooperative model.
In the years following, the GreenPolicy project has grown steadily. As of 2016 we have over 8 million views of the home site, many more forwards and re-forwards of content and pages, social media and shares. GreenPolicy has extended its global outreach with an eco Operating System (eOS) of sites and apps, news and science linking green initiatives, policies and practices via a growing worldwide open source network.
Recent system updates include Semantic MediaWiki 1.19.13 and we are improving online security.
