10 Green Groups at Active Rain = Effective Connections

Dateline Asheville, North Carolina, August, 2009
Real Estate News and Views from Green Asheville's "Stay-in-Your-Home" Eco-Steward

Effective communication- it is about how well we communicate with each other- about how well we  connect with our audiences. That holds t rue no matter where you find yourself.
 Take for example the ten (10) eco-friendly Groups at Active Rain:

•1.      ECO-All-Stars~ GREEN Resources, Trends & Friends (1062 Members)
•2.      BuiltGREEN (36 Members)
•3.      EcoBrokers  (110 Members)
•4.      Environmentally Responsible Real Estate Professionals (26 Members)
•5.      Going Green! (184 Members)
•6.      Green housing panel (144 Members)
•7.      Green Lending (27 Members)
•8.      Green Marketing (395 Members)
•9.      Healthy Lifestyle - Green Lifestyle (97 Members)
•10.  NAR Green Designation Realtors (4 Members).

Does the time and energy the members of these Groups devote to a post help to determine how well larger ecological issues are considered? I cannot say for sure.

 Certainly, eco-friendly consumer interest and demand is high in today's real estate market, so it seems likely that the 10 Green Groups at Active Rain touch  thousands readers interested in sustainable innovation - a core message the posts convey. And. I enjoy reading posts softly wrapped in the blanket of eco-friendly real estate information.

I believe the 10 Green Group posts do educate readers, and can influence how individuals, groups and cultures see, value, and ultimately act in the world. A shift in views and values towards the natural world may soon be blooming. After all, effective communication succeeds. And the 1,000+ members of the Green groups At Active Rain are making that happen.

The first step in any movement is educating and increasing awareness.  I would just like to see more members in these groups.

janeAnne- great take on all the green groups. I agree with Christine and Jennifer- it's up to us to educate. I think we'll see more members in the years to come.

Get listed!

This is most effective when people who NEED the education read the posts, rather than those who already have sought it out.

Green concept is making steady progress. There are still miles to go but with ongoing awareness blogs here at AR and elsewhere the pace will quicken. Honored to be included in your list. Thanx.
