Stigmabase is a Canadian not-for-profit technology initiative dedicated to informing and raising awareness on the damaging effects of social exclusion and stigma around the world. The marginalization of individuals or categories of individuals is a too common phenomenon. Millions of people are facing this problem around the world and many complex factors are involved.
Stigmabase lists every day of the week (52 weeks per year) hundreds of news about social exclusion and its causes throughout the world in 23 languages. The initiative hopes to be a vehicle for change and combat social exclusion throughout the world.
The Stigmabase initiative is part of a universal approach and rejects any nationalist and fundamentalist character. Social action believes in equality between the sexes, races, cultures, and equal opportunities for all.
The City of Sydney
Sydney is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city with a diverse population featuring a rich history, internationally-recognised tourist attractions and an exciting calendar of events. The City of Sydney is the local government authority responsible for the city centre and more than 30 suburbs within our boundaries.
In 2007, we asked residents and businesses what they wanted to see happen over the next 20 years and beyond. The result is a collective vision for Sydney’s future development called Sustainable Sydney 2030, which will make Sydney a green, global and connected city. The City is fast becoming a leading environmental performer and our sustainability plan guides what we do – sustainable development is not just about the physical environment but it is also about fostering Sydney’s economy, society and culture into our plans.
