Homepage

We began working with Right to Education team, based at Action Aid, in 2008. The original site was created as a home for the thinking of an educationalist called Tomascevski.

PM home

This project began with a request to migrate an off-line library database of 5000 records based on Robert Chambers' seminal paper archive of 'grey matter' about Participatory Methodologies, onto the internet so that its contents could be more findable.

End Water Poverty home

End Water Poverty's old site had served them well for a number of years, but began creaking at the seams as their content needs evolved and the site wasn't able to keep pace. The new site's aim was to bring the issues and campaigns of EWP to life - especially for their growing network of water and sanitation NGOs around the world.

This legal database project was made possible by a European Union grant to the Irish Refugee Council.

The idea was to create a central searchable archive of immigration case law summaries from 11 EU member  states which would allow for useful comparisons of cases across the countries according to a set of priority issues and provisions.

Open Doors Home

The challenge of doing sexual health outreach work in East London has been transformed by police action in the run up to the Olympics. This was the unusual starting point for the Open Doors Sexual Health Clinic's request for a new website.

Gyaan Yatra home

Gyaan Yatra is an initiative of the Asian Foundation for Philanthropy, designed to animate debate and understanding of development issues as a way of raising awareness. And as part of this work it also cultivates a group of development ambassadors, young people who are involved in AFP's development leadership scheme. Now translating all of that into requirements for the website meant coming up with a structure that could provide:

CR home

CR has been growing its archive of peace building resources - articles, briefings and its own journal series, Accord, for nearly 20 years. And although their old website  was able to contain most of the content, managing it and finding it was becoming increasingly unwieldy.

Datum home page

During more than 50 years of work on construction for natural disaster preparedness, James Lewis has published numerous chapters and papers on vulnerability to natural hazards, corruption, island vulnerability), climate change, and their interconnections with socio-economic capacity and development.

International Year of Coops home page

In celebration of the UN's decision to make 2012 the International Year of Co-operatives, the International Cooperatives Association commissioned GreenNet and Wave to build and design a special site for the year. In the spirit of cooperation the site draws together content for republishing from stories.coop and thenews.coop.

Fanmex home pge

The Freshwater Action Network came to GreenNet in 2011 with an already-built global website. We worked together with FAN to make a schedule and coherent plan for developing and maintaining the global site, and then turned our attention to a new micro-site for their members in Mexico. Using the same underpinning database, we were able to create a site that both stands alone and works together with the global site. It seamlessly features global content where appropriate, but is firmly grounded design and content-wise in its Mexican user base.

Web projects with Drupal

GreenNet’s current CMS of choice is Drupal. It is an open source system for developing websites and publishing content to them. A Drupal website has at its heart a database of the site’s content (articles, reports, profiles, events etc..). The system serves content from the database to the right pages of the site in the appropriate style, as they are called for by site users. Site authors can add, modify and manage their content in that database using simple private online forms.

The advantage of this system for GreenNet members is that their sites can be updated by anyone who has authorised access from any internet connected computer. All they need is an ordinary web browser such as Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. Once they have mastered the simple art of filling in the Drupal forms, resources and...
