Planet 4 was born out of a vision of worldwide open collaboration, both inside and outside of the organisation. The goal was and is to create a global engagement tool that was shaped by all. From the outset, we were Open; we shared, invited and accepted users’ contributions and ideas. Now two and a half years later, Planet 4 has 45 Greenpeace websites and makes up 83% of all of Greenpeace's global web presence.
We are now moving into version two of the product. This version is driven by an organisational commitment to engagement and reaching new audiences. The product itself is being shaped by the regional offices, the supporters, the audience and the Open Source community. As part of our commitment to total transparency, we regularly publish stories and process examples on Medium.
