Green Quadrant has developed a major new multilingual, interactive, multimedia website for World Fair Trade Day 2009:

Working with the ethical communications agency, Host Universal, on behalf of IFAT, the International Fair Trade Association, Green Quadrant has built the site using the open source content management system Joomla!

Users are able to register and manage their profiles, plan events, post videos, take part in discussion forums and comment on blog and news articles, as well as post content to their favourite social networking sites.

Plans are in place to extend the social networking capabilities of the site over the next few months, to allow users to link to each other, form groups and exchange private messages as well as invite friends to the site and send e-cards. The site will help organisations to plan and manage their World Fair Trade Day events on 9 May 2009.

The Joomla! site uses a variety of social networking extensions and runs on Apache on a Xen virtual private server with Debian as the operating system. The use of open source software has allowed the site to be developed rapidly and to a tight budget.
