This project grew out of a request to create a Norwegian version of the new Publish What you Pay logo. The Norwegian wing of the global civil society transparency-in-mining coalition was prompted into action after the successful refit of the international website. Localising the logo just involved a bit of rearranging with the country name. The website was a bigger undertaking, as it has a focus on the capacity building work that is particular to pwyp.no. The site was to become the online presence for their programme for participating NGOs across 3 regions in anglophone and francophone Africa and Latin America.The site also needed to reach out to a Norwegian audience by providing bi-lingual content and opportunities for interaction. The result is a multi-lingual site with interactive mapping, participant searching, an online petition and a news feed from the international site. It stands alone as an instrument for advocacy in the campaign for improved transparency in extractive industries. Equally it sits very obviously as a child of the global coalition.

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
