Website overhaul - work in progress
February 2011, here we go: the AgriCultures Network has re-launched its core website - www.agriculturesnetwork.org – to better showcase the work of its partners and projects. Explore its new features and give us your feedback!
This has been the result of many months of hard work. The overall aim of the redesign of our website is to update it, and also to make it more effective in communicating the work of our network, our partners and our allies.
The AgriCultures Network is now online with a completely restructured website. Maintaining the same values and sprit, we want to make a more fruitful use of the web 2.0 potentialities.
Those who are already familiar with our organisation know that our main mission is to support small-scale sustainable agriculture, connecting stakeholders and different types of knowledge. The new websites has been developed with the purpose of making its navigation easier, and consequently more pleasurable for the user. This will enable all our readers to find, without problems, the products of 25 years of work.
more than 5200 articles, 335 magazine issues, 22130 people and about 8000 library items
The goal is not only to have a more user friendly site, simplifying the access to information. We are also trying to facilitate the interaction among our readers and between them and us.
The new website has been created using Plone, a popular open source Content Management System, that has been adapted for us by FourDigits. The launch in February marks the first phase of the redevelopment of the AgriCultures website. The transfer and restructuring of more than 5200 articles, 335 magazine issues tied to nine topics, 22130 people and about 8000 library items, is a complicated project. It will take a little while to tidy up formatting on many pages and make everything work smoothly.
We believe the new website will make it easier for readers to find information, and then to easily identify the projects, people and networks with whom to take action. We also hope that regular readers of www.agriculturesnetwork.org will find that these improvements equip them better for their own struggles for a more environmentally and socially just world.
We kindly invite you to browse through our new website and to send us your opinions.
