Welcome to This World Matters.
This site is here to bring together people who are concerned about the world around them.
The environment, politics, poverty, health, war, an oil based economy... All these things give rise to concern for so many of us.
Acting as individuals and in separate groups we do what we can to make the world a better, safer, kinder, more enlightened and informed place.
From random acts of kindness that brighten up the days of strangers, to mass anti-war demonstrations, our interests and activities vary enormously.
But there is one thing we all have in common.
This forum is an attempt to bring like-minded people and groups together to share their knowledge, concerns, ideas, solutions, and interestedness. To inform each other of events, activities, protests, etc.
Tell us what you know, find out what we know.
Prefer to dive straight in? Go right ahead...
It matters that those who represent your views in government know what your views are!
