To avoid organisational redundancy

Redundancy is one of the great travesties of the sustainability field. “I think the main problem that we face in addressing global challenges is that there’s extensive organizational redundancy. Web-based collaboration is highly useful for mitigating some of that redundancy.” (Ali Wyne) Of course one of the causes of this redundancy is the ‘information glut’ whereby due to the information access the web provides, individuals are more likely to start up a new organization to tackle problems without being rigorous in searching for other organizations with similar or identical missions. (Ali Wyne) So while collaboration holds great opportunities for reducing this redundancy, we need to be committed and willing to seek out other organizations.
