Resilient Cascadia Landing Page and Action Library

Blueprint for a Resilient Cascadia landing page
Client:   University of Washington Climate Impacts Group

The Climate Impacts Group at the University of Washington has been working for several years with the Cascadia Partner Forum to develop a cross-jurisdictional plan for climate resilience across the Cascadia region, which spans the boarder region between the United States and Canada. As part of the Blueprint for a Resilient Cascadia, they worked with stakeholders across the region to develop dozens of actions that support climate resilience. GreenInfo joined the project to make those actions easy to search, discover, and share.

We started the engagement by reviewing the existing actions and other content and then developing a survey to support our design work. The survey went out to dozens of members of the Cascadia Partner Forum, and then we used the results to structure a workshop with a smaller core group to collaboratively design the content and features of the landing page and a searchable library of actions.

Using the outcomes of that workshop, we developed designs in Adobe Xd for both the landing page and the searchable action library. Once we finalized those designs, we implemented them in two ways: First by modifying the Partner Forum's existing SquareSpace website with improved navigation, styling, and accessibility features. And second by developing a custom Action Library application, which we deployed to Github Pages and embedded in a new page on the Squarespace site.

“ Thank you so much for your creativity and responsiveness in putting together such a fabulous landing page and action library for the Blueprint. It was a real treat to share the final product with the larger Cascadia Partner Forum community and Blueprint partners at our launch webinar last week. It’s also been a nice surprise to already find ourselves being primary users of the Library.”
