Re-connecting communities to end homelessness

Aug 5, 2010  |  by Jason Mogus

The Communicopia office has been all a-buzz this past week after helping one of our NYC-based clients, Common Ground, launch their bold new campaign to house 100,000 homeless Americans by July 2013.

Being from Vancouver where homelessness is a top-of-mind issue, we were thrilled to work closely with the 100,000 Homes Campaign team because of their unique, integrated approach to solving this problem using a collaborative self-organizing systems approach.

Sharing their vision, passion, and model to grow a groundswell around this campaign makes it one of our most compelling websites of the year.

Grassroots effort - powered by digital - brings back LiveSmart BC

May 17, 2010  |  by Jason Mogus

One of our clients, BCSEA, scored a huge campaign victory last month when the B.C. provincial government announced renewed funding for the nearly defunct retrofit energy efficiency program, LiveSmart BC.

LiveSmart BC was created in 2008 to support the government's commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 33% from 2007 levels by 2020. The portfolio included providing support to businesses through tax incentives for energy efficient vehicles - but it was the overwhelming response by homeowners to the retrofit incentives that made the program incredibly successful, meeting its 3-year goal of retrofitting 40,000 homes in just the first 15 months.

Help The Climate Movement Win a Webby!

We recently received the fantastic news that has been nominated for best Activism website in the People's Choice Webby Awards. And we need your help to win!

Over the past year has become the hub of one of the biggest, most diverse movements in history; bringing together 15 million people calling for a fair, ambitious and binding climate agreement at the COP15 conference in Copenhagen last December. While our leaders did not give the world the deal we wanted, the climate movement is only beginning.

Our Fresh Air Center empowers activism 2.0 in Copenhagen

The last 3 months have been a whilrwind, helping the TckTckTck global climate campaign get ready for, and do some serious movement building, in Copenhagen.

After working a lot of 20 hour days during December, I'm still finding my feet again and hope to do some writing about what we learned together in what is probably the most diverse movement the world has ever seen.

How created the world's largest distributed political action

Oct 26, 2009  |  by Jason Mogus

It was a great honour to spend the weekend in New York with the amazing folks at, as they organized what has easily become the world's most widely distributed political action, and, for a time on Saturday, became the biggest media story in the world.

This, from one of the smallest NGO's on the planet, and probably one of the youngest - nearly everyone who works there is only a few years out of college! So how did they pull off something so massive with such a small team?

As part of our role managing the digital campaign for the TckTckTck campaign, we were right there in the centre of the aciton with them. Because I'm now too busy to write blog updates here, this is a re-print from what was sent out to my community on what happened, and how they pulled this magic off.
