At a technical level GreenNet members operate as a network of ‘client’ computers all connected to a central server that lets them communicate with each other, and prompt actions in different points on the network.

But the tag cloud below gives a more interesting perspective on the voices and issues that are connected through the services we provide. Click on the tags to journey through the network of resources, projects, stories and campaigns from throughout the GreenNet community of people working for peace, the environment, gender equality and human rights. You’ll find alternative news headlines from the archives as well as interactive spaces to post events and job vacancies.
