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...

The challenge in developing a new website for the Institute of Employment Rights, was to create something as functional as possible without making management too complex for the overstretched staff. IER’s new website now comes complete with an up to date schedule of events, lists all the latest publications,...

Publish What You Pay's global coalition of transparency advocacy organisations has come a long way in the years since we rebuilt the site with Drupal in 2008. And there was a growing sense that the Where We Work section wasn't properly keeping pace with the range of...

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.

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...

The Positive Energy initiative came from some renewable fuel visionaries based in East Sussex. Their idea was simple and brilliant: To use the food and paper component of the 400,000 tonnes of waste produced by local homes, and convert it into energy we can use.

The Freshwater Action Network came to GreenNet in 2011 with an already-built global website.

Using the same underpinning database, we were able to...

The last PI website rebuild was back in 2004 when we devised what felt like quite an innovative way of cross referencing content. But as is the way with our line of work, what seemed cool and groovy in 2004 had become pretty clunky and out-moded by 2010 (or probably even sooner for web fashionistas). And so the challenge 6 years on, was to...

Down To Earth's old website dated back to 2002, and had built up an impressive Indonesian environmental justice archive over those 8 years. But the effort of manually coding and uploading content was increasingly looking like an inefficient use of resources - especially given the more user-friendly web management alternatives available. So...

NSWP's old online home was made up of a Wordpress blog and and Plone database of resources. Keeping things together, findable and updatable was becoming increasingly difficult, and serving the needs of a multi-lingual membership spread out in groups around the world had fallen by the wayside. Our brief was to build a new home for the...

This Open Society initiative was set up to conduct research into the impact of privatisation in education around the world.
