Glossary of Good

 

TL:DR – empower’s Glossry of Good is a series of articles explaining key concepts in non-profit, campaigning, sustainability and global developmentIn our work at empower, we work with a variety of organisations tackling some of society’s toughest challenges.

From climate change to anti-corruption, human rights to the future of work, nuclear weapons to diversity & equality, the sheer range of causes and all their complexities means that keeping up to speed with all the key terms, ideas, theories, concepts and acronyms can be a full-time job in itself.

That’s why we had the idea for a series called “Glossary of Good”. The basic idea is to create short explainer articles of key concepts for the kind of work we and our clients do.

For example, the term “Just Transition” comes up quite a lot through our work in the sustainability sector. But what does Just Transition mean? Where did the concept originate from? What examples of a Just Transition are there? Who is working on the Just Transition course and where? Where can I find it more detail about Just Transition?

Swap out the term “Just Transition” for any complicated idea and you can see how it would be useful to have 800 words simply explaining what exactly something is and providing examples of an abstract concept in action.

We know that Wikipedia contains the basic definition for many of these words, but a more interactive, engaging and simplified explainer placed in the context of Empower’s work should add enough value to warrant the existence of a Glossary of Good.

What ideas, concepts, acronyms and key terms should we include in a Glossary of Good?

The possibilities are near limitless, but the first items we’ve come up with so far include the following:

What else should we include in a Glossary of Good?

We’ll keep adding to this list as we think of more, but feel free to suggest it other terms that we could cover. Leave a comment below, email me at [email protected] or tweet is at @empowerdigi.

If you want to know when the latest entries into our Glossary of Good are published, sign up to our e-mail newsletter here and we’ll send you a note when a new article goes live.

In the meantime, let us know if you like the idea of the Glossary of Good and if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see in our explainer articles.

Now all that’s left is for you to read the first entries into our Glossary of Good!

Use Facebook As Your Business Page: How to like, share or comment from your Facebook business page

Facebook used to make it really easy to like, comment and share as if you were acting as your Facebook business or organisation page.
But we’ve been getting lots of questions from clients recently who can no longer access or use this useful Facebook feature.

If you need to act as your page to engage with fans and other pages, Facebook has recently changed this feature. You may also want to see posts from other pages that your business follows, to make it easy to like, follow or comment on their posts, direct to your Facebook page.

Here’s the new way to address both of these challenges.
