Community Article Guidelines

Dear Green Network Asia Community Readers,

We invite you to write and publish your articles in Green Network Asia’s “Community” platform.


The roles of grassroots individuals and communities in the realization of sustainable development around the world are instrumental. Yet, they often go unnoticed by wider audiences and the general public due to limited resources for publications. 

At Green Network Asia, we work day to day empowering grassroots movements from individuals and communities through digital publications produced organically by our team. However, we – with our limited time, energy, and resources – have much room to grow to capture  stories from as many individuals and communities as possible with the complexity of their unique voices, experiences, efforts, and contributions to society.

Our “Community” platform is here to facilitate you in writing and publishing stories from your community. This way, you can organically share authentic and unique stories from your community, benefit from our editorial support, and reach our multi-stakeholder community readers with passion, enthusiasm, aspiration, influence, and interest in sustainable development and the general public in Asia Pacific and beyond.


We do not provide honorarium for the successfully published articles on our “Community” platform. We dedicate the platform to scaling up our community empowerment efforts and have already spent an operational budget to publish organic articles like this. We fund our operations with our Partnership work and hope to empower grassroots communities in the future sustainably.
