This post was originally posted at the Improving the World blog, however I decided to merge the two blogs so it can now be found here as well.

What is the first thing you do when you want to know something about anything?

Right! Look it up on the internet!

I wanted to know more about how to go about improving the world. Imagine my surprise when I could not find anything remotely resembling a comprehensive guide on how to do this!

Being of the “either fix it or stop complaining about it” persuasion, I decided to go with the former, fixing this.

This blog is meant to be a starting point for everybody who is interested in improving the world, either locally, or truly on an entire-world scale. It will contain tips, tricks, ideas, schemes and collaborations on how to actually go about make a better world. It will feature some philosophy, links to others who are actively (or purely by doing what they do) doing their bit and tales to inspire. Finally, I very strongly believe in “practicing what you preach”, so I will be including personal stories about what I did and tried, how I succeeded and failed, in making this world a bit more pleasant to live in.

In the end, the goal of this blog is to improve the world! I can’t do that all by myself, so help me! Send your feedback, stories, ideas! Collaborate! inspire and be inspired!

Have fun improving the world!
