Dear GreenNet friends,
It's time once again for our annual GreenNet winter newsletter. We'd like to thank new and longstanding GreenNet users for your support in 2023 and wish you a very merry festive season.
We've been keeping busy this year as usual. In 2023 we welcomed new customers from Netuxo and Wave, and connected thousands of users in various ways - check the revived GreenNet in Numbers report below.
If you just want to see when our office is closed for the holidays, please skip to the end of this message.

We carried out several new projects and updates in 2023:
- We worked with ActNowPNG on DDAWatch,
- relaunched TAPOL in Drupal 10,
- migrated Socialist International Women to WordPress,
- AskSource was transferred to UCL GDI,
- we built the Teacher Resource Centre for UNESCO Teacher Task Force,
- transferred the UN TES community UNESCO SDG Secretariat,
- and we rebuilt the Statue for Sylvia campaign website
... to name just a few, and we have some brilliant projects coming up next year, so please keep an eye out, and let us know if you'd like a shiny new website or have a great idea for an online project.
