Free Eco Web Services
Currently, the main goal of the project is to provide a small-sized, portable, error-free, free and durable knowledge-base which can work as a catalyst to create environmentally conscious clubs in any city of the world. If this succeeds, then a culture may emerge from the knowledge-base, which can increase the number of the environmentally friendly people and make them wiser. The project intends to help the formation and upkeep of local environmentally conscious clubs by web services other than the knowledge base too.
The other goal of the FEcoWebS project is the solution of the environmental problems. This work is done in three steps: writing down the motivational theory, writing down the specific ideas, and after the selection of some specific ideas the elaboration of them as projects or web services. So, in an ideal case, the local environmentally conscious clubs would make the stakeholders of our project and its human resources, and the project would provide opportunities for them to protect the environment better or disengage in an environmentally friendly way.

Other development possibilities have come into mind too, but in the lack of time and resources, we're going to stress the above yet. When there'll be more time and resources available to the project, it can grow by some of the following, for example (in the order of priority):
For security, it may also be important to put the FEcoWebS homepage or some of its parts to more and more places on the web and elsewhere. Install it to more URLs and more knowledge management systems, and put its writings in more formats, into more electronic libraries, more blogs, more online or print newspapers, etc.

During the Free Eco Web Services (FEcoWebS) project Árpád Fekete's language, writing, web development, social and project management skills have improved, and this project can help in getting fame, reference, good karma, connections and new opportunities too. That's why the development is worthy even as a hobby, but the ideal way would be to do it more professionally, for money, with the support of an environmentalist organization. Árpád Fekete has other goals in life too, so not much time is spent on this project from his free time.
