Civil Society in Penang (working list for comment, correction)

Penang Forum meeting

Penang Forum meeting

There is a saying in baseball that you can’t tell the players without a scorecard. Which is true of so many things in life. As it is in this open collaborative program where it is important to bear in mind and eventually network all the partners representing Civil Society, the independent voices of concerned citizens in a democratic society. And just to fill out our score card, you will also find here the principle concerned government organizations.

So here you have our working list of the main concerned independent organizations and NGOs whose responsibility and allegiance lies in their charters and mission statements, followed by the present short list of related independent blogs, and finally our best shortlist of the main concerned government agencies and organizations.

You will surely find errors and omissions on this list, including perhaps on their respective URLs (each listing   is clickable so that you can go directly to source). As  corrections and additions come in, we will incorporate them into the master listing which will be available to all.)

Penang Civil Society: Independent organizations, NGOs


Local Blogs

Government agencies, including groups accountable to or relying largely on government finance


Thank you for making this a better list and tool for collaboration.
