Green Economy Network

The client

The Green Economy Coalition is a diverse set of organisations and sectors from NGOs, research institutes, UN organisations, business to trade unions.

The brief

The client required a new knowledge platform, a “Green Economy Network” for small businesses to be able to find information relevant to their needs and to add their own expertise. It needed to be built on a flexible and extensible content management system that would allow for users to search and browse information and for registered members to upload content in multiple formats. From case studies (green solutions) to measurement tools, discussion forums and blogs, there was a requirement to define and create many different types of content.

The solution worked closely with the client and a nominated graphic designer to design and build the platform. Drupal 7 was selected as the CMS, together with a large number of core, contributed and custom modules. Working from detailed Illustrator and Photoshop mockups, created customised PHP templates and HTML, CSS, PHP and JavaScript code.
