Science for Peace Joins WEB

Science for Peace has subscribed to WEB, a global communications network serving the needs of the environmental, peace, international development, social justice and social services communities.

WEB is menu driven, simple to use and provides many features. Its most useful service is network conferences. One can join written conversations with other users on a variety of topics. Uses of conferences include:

  • providing, retrieving and discussing information about current issues,
  • creating calendars announcing the time, place and subjects of events,
  • coordinating regional, national or international projects,
  • writing joint papers or proposals with several other users.

WEB is a member of the Association for Progressive Communications (APC) which cooperates to provide international services, linking people from all over the world. APC has nodes similar to WEB in countries that include UK, USA, Sweden, Brazil, Nicaragua, Australia, South Africa, Zimbabwe.

Science for Peace members are invited to try out WEB on a trial basis until August 7th.
