Mission Statement

Needpedia's goal is to build the wiki for all possible solutions to any problem, with anything. ​But more than that, our goal is connect people over the best ideas on Earth. We recognized a need to build not simply a wiki for looking at ideas, but an social media platform for collaborating on them.


We’re still a very small organization. Our first goal was to create Needpedia and get it online, so that didn’t take a lot of people or social media support so much as a long web development process. But that stage is finally over! Needpedia.com’s already online, now we just need to get gmail to stop putting our account creation emails in people’s spam folders, and deactivated. (Apparently being hosted at "http" instead of "https" is a bigger deal than we realized. We’ll hopefully have it figured out in the next week or so)

In the meantime, if you want an account just send me your email and we’ll make one for you.

Our organization is very unstructured and young, so we’re totally cool with people just pitching in what they can, but if you’d like structure or need volunteering hours signed off on then we can set goals as well.
