New Web Site to enhance participation in protecting the environment

The US-American Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is opening the doors on a
new, more interactive, and task-oriented Web site designed to meet users'
needs. Citizens want to participate in protecting the environment in which they
live and work. People want to find topics of interest to support them quickly.

The new design includes:

Links to immediate actions people can take to protect the environment at home
or in their community:


  • How can I make my home more energy-efficient?

  • What and where can I recycle?

  • How do I learn about environmental conditions in my community?

  • What can my community do to help to prevent pollution?

Interactive media like blogs so people can:


  • Post comments to our blog "Greenversations"

  • Comment on proposed regulations

  • Bookmark EPA pages with Digg It.

Web 2.0 Tools to inform people on EPA activities:


  • RSS news feeds to provide information to subscribers

  • Videos and podcasts

  • Widgets to put EPA information on their Web site.
