3p Update: New Forums, More Partnerships, New Series…

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Thanks for a stellar 2010 (with one more week to go) and for helping us grow the site and the community by leaps and bounds this year.

TriplePundit has always been a catalyst for conversation about sustainability in business. We’re excited to be launching reader-run forums this week (in “beta”). Take a look, sign up (you can even use Facebook) and kick off a conversation or let us know what you think! We’ll be slowly adding features throughout January and February. Check them out here!

Secondly, we’re excited to announce a number of new school and corporate partnerships in January (TBA!) which will help to deepen the conversations we’re able to bring you. If your company or school is interested in a partnership with 3p, please contact us!

Third, we’re also excited to be launching a number of new guest editorial columns on diverse subjects such as behavior change for sustainability, local economies, the business of health & wellness, and a lot more. If there are subjects you think we should be paying special attention to, or if you are intersted in being a guest editor, please get in touch with us.

FINALLY, our year end business writing contest is stil rolling along. You’ve got until Friday at midnight pacific time to get your submission in to win one of two $50 prizes, not to mention the recognition of being published on 3p. Register here first and we’ll send you instructions. It’s open to anyone, so pass it on!
