AVAAZ Petition Platform
Year of production: 2020
Avaaz is a global web movement to bring people-powered politics to decision-making everywhere. Avaaz empowers millions of people from all walks of life to take action on pressing global, regional and national issues, from corruption and poverty to conflict and climate change. Our model of internet organising allows thousands of individual efforts, however small, to be rapidly combined into a powerful collective force. The Avaaz community campaigns in 15 languages, served by a core team on 6 continents and thousands of volunteers. Activities the platform covers include signing petitions, funding media campaigns and direct actions, emailing, calling and lobbying governments, and organizing “offline” protests and events — all with the aim “to ensure that the views and values of the world’s people inform the decisions that affect us all”.
