A Brief History
GreenPolicy360 planning began in 2004 as a project proposed to the Green Institute by Steven Schmidt, the Institute's publishing director.
A Green Policy online network was designed as an accessible source of "green best practices" at the local, national and global level.
In 2006, the first online version of our green best practices database was launched. Concurrently, an associated strategic policies initiative was launched in Washington DC.
In 2008, the project expanded and subsequently became an independent wiki network renamed GreenPolicy360 with the Green Institute transferring its domain and oversight.
In the years following its launch, the GreenPolicy project has grown (approximately 20 million views and shared Green best practices as of 2017).
GreenPolicy360 has continued to extend its global outreach with a GreenLinks network of sites and apps linking green initiatives, policies and practices.
In 2014, system updates included Semantic MediaWiki and expanded interactive mapping: http://www.greenpolicy360.net/w/World_map
GreenPolicy's associate, Strategic Demands #StratDem, expanded in 2016.
GP360 — About Us
GreenPolicy360 provides green best practices, news and updates, and an online database which lists local/global policies and successful examples -- legislation/proposals/resolutions/ordinances/concepts -- of green values in practice. Our database is growing. We've experienced millions of page visits. Our Introduction Video explains how we started.
We are an eco-network, a system designed for online sharing, a distributive web of green best practices. GreenPolicy360 was developed for use in all communities, local, national, international. GreenPolicy lets you know how other communities are dealing with many of the key public policy issues of yesterday, today and tomorrow. If you're working to craft similar green legislation/proposals/resolutions/ordinances/concepts for your local community, or you just want to get an idea of best practices that might be possible, you can use the models and templates here. Use our online platform of best practices, build on what has worked in other communities and locations, create waves of change, multiply and keep on keeping on.
