  • Mediated image of remote location
  • Can new media be used as efficient tool to support forest activism?
  • Digital divide between rich & urban & poor & rural (global perspective)
  • Representations of forest related lifestyles in (new) media
  • How do people use web based media in rural areas to communicate the forest issues?

Facebook and open API[edit]

with a little tweak we have a social net game for second life

http://get.games.yahoo.com/proddesc?gamekey=flowerstandtycoon

can easily become creating a forest / nature preserve. Bring in the threat from loggers and friends network to protect your forest and you have a game and also a way to take about protecting the forest:

are a couple using the facebook open API to play forest resuce games.

There is even funding from a finnish company to develop new apps like such games:

So why not use the open API to save the finnish forest. There is a big user base potential in the boreal region.
