Issue:- 09 January 2013


SOCIAL media is changing our world. It is opening up our communities and shifting the way we communicate. But this isn't just Facebook and Twitter; niche social media networks are developing; networks like Project Dirt that help people to make a real difference in their local community.

Project Dirt  is a free online network which, started in London, now connects nearly 1600 community projects across the country. The website allows individuals and groups to manage all their projects, events and volunteering in one place, leaving more time to focus on offline activities. In need of extra volunteers to paint a community centre? Looking for ideas about how to landscape a local park's food growing garden? Not sure who to approach to fund that educational project? Project Dirt is the platform to connect with local people making positive things happen.

And now, by word of mouth alone, Project Dirt has grown to almost 9000 members. Close to 500 of these individuals are in Liverpool. This isn't simply a website; it's social media making a real difference to your local community.


THE Green Dream is an urban food growing and environmental project in the heart of Bootle. Since March 2013, it has attracted over 100 volunteers from the local community, many through Project Dirt. Andrea uses a Project Dirt profile as the Green Dream's main website. She considers Project Dirt the perfect social network for finding out about local projects, as well as for advertising volunteering opportunities and events in Bootle.  Click on this link for more information about this project.


THE Friends of Everton Park are playing a key role in regenerating Everton Park, a Liverpudlian landmark. Though located in the heart of the city, the park is extremely underused so Jo publicises activities, like the opening of the Nature Garden, on Project Dirt to encourage visitors. This year's Out of the Blue Festival at Everton Park was also promoted on Project Dirt and was a huge success.  Click on this link for more information about this project.
