After we completed the FERN and SinksWatch websites in early 2010, Logging Off was next in the queue from this stable. The project was borne partly out of a need to improve the update-ability of the Logging Off site, but also fitted into  FERN's grander plans to standardise their online platforms using Drupal. Unlike FERN's broad scope of forests and forest peoples’ rights, Logging Off  has a specific focus on the national negotiations around  Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT). The site is organised as a one-stop-shop for all those involved or interested in these negotiations - with constantly updated country pages that list all relevant resources and news. The site's main navigation is supported by a guided search which allows site users to combine country names and theme terms to narrow down on the content they're after. The site's content is largely available in both English and French - switchable using a simple language menu. The site's page design draws heavily on the look and feel of the previous version of Logging Off, with adaptations designed to optimise loading times in low bandwidth environments, and improve readability of content.

Web projects

GreenNet web projects are all about planning, designing, building and hosting websites that work for you and the issues you’re working on.

The GreenNet web team have worked for more than ten years building websites for NGOs, campaigns, social enterprises, development projects, ethically-minded freelancers and community groups. And we just get better and better at doing it which means a) all the work that is done in the name of one web project gets shared for the benefit of all subsequent projects and b) we're now the best we ever have been so there's never been a better time to ask us to build a site for you!

GreenNet web project basics

Every project is different but there are some pretty consistent threads running through all the sites we build:

  • Transparent navigation
  • Accessible content for both people and search engine robots
  • Simple data structures for organisations to update
  • Effective tools for collaboration between workers
  • Engaging spaces for supporters to interact with your work
