The brief from Deborah was a bit of a departure from the more usual list of organisational advocacy-led requirements that we get in the GN Web Projects dept.  Hers was a need for a modest site that could work as an effective stall for her to sell her freelance skills.  After years of working as a writer and editor for a range of...

After years of working with hundreds of html-coded pages on a static website, SGR managed to raise the funds to get their website rebuilt with Drupal. The budget was tight so we worked together to prioritise their requirements and make a plan that would meet their needs without overspilling. A bespoke page design was out but an automated (...

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...

This project began life as an attempt to create a subsite for the Cornerhouse's Interventions work - a space to publish and organise the paper trails of legal documents, Freedom of Information requests, press reports etc... that emerge during investigations carried out by Cornerhouse researchers. But as the project plans...

The DVA(Diaspora Volunteering Alliance) is a new initiative of a group of UK organisations with a common interest in sending diaspora volunteers to support projects in their countries and continents of origin. DVA staff approached GreenNet with a brief to build a website that could quickly provide an online presence for the Alliance - a...

This rebuild project was timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the journal. Although the printed version has had an online presence for nearly 10 years now, this new Drupal site is the boldest departure DIP(Development In Practice) has yet made from its printed form. The content is still available in its conventional volume/issue...

FERN's European Union advocacy work is focused on protecting forests and defending the rights of forest peoples. They approached us in 2008 with a familiar tale of a website that was not keeping pace with the growth and change in their activities. More of their content was being written in French as well as English and the volume and...

PLRI(The Paulo Longo Research Initiative) is a project hosted by the IDS(Institute of Development Studies) which aims to improve understanding of the issues affecting the lives of sex workers.

Thanks to their innovative approach to using ICTs, WLUML(Women Living Under Muslim Laws) was one of GN's first web clients to use a CMS(Content Management System) to manage their website. Within months of setting the sytem up in 2002, their flow of daily news stories and Action Alerts had picked up speed and content began appearing in...

We made the initial connection with the Quakers through the _Drupal for NGOs_ monthly gatherings. They'd been struggling for the last few years with a custom built CMS that was proving too inflexible to cope with new requirements. So they were looking for a new site that could take on all the content from the old site and provide the...

AFP was established to connect the UK's South Asian Diaspora Group with development initiatives in India. They encourage donations in money or time to marginalised communities in India. Their web project was designed to transform their online presence from a simple brochure site, into more of an outreach tool. The aim was to make the...

Community Led Total Sanitation webpage

The CLTS(Community Led Total Sanitation) project at IDS(Institute of Development Studies) has spent the last years in a small corner of the Livelihoods Connect website. As the project, its reputation and its reach have grown, calls have grown for it to have its own purpose built website where all its resources and news can be easily sorted...

The Right to Education Project came to GreenNet with an already-made complex tables-based design mockup, and just 3 weeks to build a website and content management to house and manage the content. We used Drupal to create the initial site structure, and then carefully rebuilt the design without the original tables-based layout. Whilst the...

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...

The FAAN project brings together partners from across Europe that are involved with local, sustainable small scale producer retailers. The project needed a public website and a community networking area for its partners, which provided alternate language content and multiple access levels for the different types of users.
The project...
