For those of you who do not know it, we do have a “publication arm” that works rather effectively, a collaborative blog which we set up in 2013 during my first visit to Penang, under the title Sustainable Penang: Toward a New Mobility Agenda. It is freely available at https://sustainablepenangagenda.wordpress.com/. A section of the home page is shown here, and to get the feel for how it works I recommend that you start with . . . START.
I mention this now because the blog invites contributions from those with useful knowledge or questions to share with our 173 international readers, while each posting is picked up by parallel social media sites on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/SustainablePenang , 153 readers), LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/5084715), and Twitter (https://twitter.com/SustainPenang). Selected articles are also posted in World Streets (https://worldstreets.wordpress.com/), for the attention of our 4403 international readers).
We intend to make Sustainable Penang a first stop shop for all those interested to follow progress and the debates and different points of view on the matters which bring us all here. If you have articles that you would like to publish on these important topics, you are invited to take contact via email@example.com. We cannot promise to publish every article we receive, but we will in all cases give them a good look and share with the author our editorial reactions and comments.
Eric Britton, Editor
