LONDON: Comment:Visions, the Shell-sponsored online discussion forum for energy and environmental leaders, has re-launched with enhanced community interaction and networking.
Will Nicholson, project director of Comment:Visions, explained that Shell provided the sponsorship for the site because it wanted to “be part of the debate” but stressed the energy company did not moderate comments and often contributed to discussions. He said: “Shell has traditionally been in the background because the goal of the forum is to build a community of opinion leaders who can connect in a safe and trusted environment.”
The site, which hosts a community of 500+ global industry leaders and experts, originally launched in 2008 and is a partnership between a Euronews TV show of the same name and Brussels-based newspaper European Voice.
Nicholson added that potential site members have to firstly submit an opinion piece to gain entry to the forum and the site does not accept anonymous postings.
