Greener Together launched

greener togetherThe Greener Together website designed by wave and developed by co-op web is launched! Commissioned by Co-operatives UK, as part of the Defra funded Greener Living project, the challenge is to get 50 committed co-operatives or community-owned enterprises across the UK to work with their members and customers – more than 3,600 people – to pledge to reduce their CO2 emissions by 10-20% in key areas within the next 6 months.

wave is already signed up as a participating organisation and David, our nominated eco-operator. This is a cause close to wave‘s heart and we are really proud of our design work for the site, and also to act as a local champion for co-operative members in the South East.It’s the small steps that matter, and we are working hard to make them count.

Registering is very simple, so go on and make a pledge. If you need any help David is on hand, just email: david@wave.coop

 

Top of the world

screenshotDiscovering the Arctic is a brand new website featuring a host of engaging resources including original video, photography and multimedia activities, and aiming to provide GCSE students with an exciting tool for studying the consequences of climate change.

Students are guided around some of the coldest places on earth by the people who live and work there, including scientists, tour guides and the Captain of an icebreaker.

As with our award-winning website Discovering Antarctica, this site is an interactive educational resource for schools produced with the Royal Geographic Society, who in turn partnered with the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), the British Antarctic Survey, and the Scottish Association for Marine Science.

Wave conceptualised and designed the entire site including the Flash activities and graphic assets. The site is hosted with a 100% solar powered internet service provider.

War on Want

War on Want

wave are excited to be selected by War on Want to design and produce a range of fundraising and campaign materials. Our first project has been to develop the design of all War on Want’s reports and to design a call to action insert, centred on their campaign against the human rights abuses suffered by Palestinians under Israeli Occupation. Featuring the striking War on Want trademark red and black scheme, and a case study to underline the human suffering, the insert is going out in the next issue of Amnesty magazine.

We are also working on War on Want’s new membership leaflet and Face2Face material.
