If you're reading this site, chances are the you're looking to make a change, either in your own life or something on a larger scale. Maybe you belong to an activist group or maybe you're just doing the best you can on your own. The social networking site Evolver is a fantastic resource for pulling our efforts together in one central place.
Through their networks both on- and offline, the group helps like-minded folks get connected. Like S. Corey Thomas said at the start of the "spore meeting" that I recently attended here in Atlanta, Evolver wants to "hold the umbrella up, and we can all climb underneath it."
Just like any social media site, Evolver lets you join groups, post about events, and connect with people.
Evolver has regional groups all over the world, that hold periodic meetups. The meetups, or spore meetings, are all held on the same day each month with the same theme. That means that whether you attend a meeting in Atlanta or in Sydney, you can feel a connection to that larger movement.
The spore meetings are a great way to connect with likeminded folks in your community and around the world. If there isn't a spore meeting in your area or you're looking to connect with folks about a specific issue, Evolver has you covered in that department, too! From groups about food systems to yoga, Evolver's umbrella covers a lot. Don't see a group that addresses the issue that's important to you? It's easy to start your own!
If you're working on something specific and need help from the community, you can submit your project along with what sort of help you need. It's easy to keep up with your friends' projects with just a click, too!
