MobLab is always on the prowl for innovative and interesting mobilisation campaigns. Here’s our first bi-weekly round up of people-powered strategies and tools catching our eye:
At Home Campaign
The @Home_campaign features a documentary and game to share first-person stories of homelessness across the U.S. and helps people explore the challenges of homelessness in a group game.
How “Dreamers” Changed The Immigration Debate
The language and realities of the immigration debate in the U.S. have changed dramatically in the past year. Some of that change has been driven by an unexpected new force in the debate: The increasingly public emergence of undocumented people, led by tech-savvy, social media-oriented “Dreamers.”
I Love the Arctic Global Day of Action
On April 20, 2013, more than 10,000 people came together all across the globe to take a stand for the Arctic. Organizers hosted human banners in the shape of a heart, spelling out ‘I Love Arctic,’ in more than 280 cities in 38 countries from Chile to New Zealand and from Norway to South Africa. It’s the largest manifestation for Arctic protection in history.
Tax Evaders Game Shines Light on Corporate Greed
Warning, corporate tax evaders are attacking our planet! Make them pay their fair share! Derived from “Space Invaders,” The Citizen Engagement Lab developed a new game called “Tax Evaders” to take out the corporate alien spaceships evading taxes they should be paying. Try to zap those aliens . . . . .
