Abstract

This project, completed at the Copenhagen project center, aimed to assist a Danish grassroots environmental organization, Øko-Net, in redesigning their Grønt Overblik website to increase community engagement with sustainable development. The team researched ways to engage individuals to act towards a specific goal and how technology can facilitate this process. Based on interviews with Øko-Net’s leaders and contributors, the team identified why people use Grønt Overblik and which features were most important to them. Additionally, businesses and organizations in Denmark provided advice on how to encourage user engagement. The redesigned website featured streamlined content, highlighted the usefulness of the calendar, and added a social media element that would facilitate user interaction.
