# Organisations

Over here John said:

Please, everyone: don't hesitate to create new pages on organizations that seem interesting and relevant. The main thing to avoid is organizations with strongly 'political' goals - e.g. political parties. Most interesting for us are organizations that provide accurate information or are focused on solving ecological or energy problems.

does this include organisations like Greenpeace and WWF or not? Ok, these are well-known, so it doesn't matter so much whether we include them or not. More specifically, yesterday I heard about a (rather local) organisation, the Sea First Foundation. They provide references.

Btw, right now our Organisations page is mixed, for example, DESERTEC and SeaRISE are projects, many others are purely insitutes (but maybe it's difficult to draw a line)

Btw, here's another Organisation 5gyres

Our mission is to conduct research and communicate about the global impact of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans and employ strategies to eliminate the accumulation of plastic pollution in the 5 subtropical gyres.

Include or not?

Include or not?

Sure, go for it!

I don't think it pays to try to separate Organizations into "projects" and "institutes". Maybe someday, when the page gets too big... but right now it sounds like a lot of work without much benefit.

Yes, I can imagine it might be.
