Building a Just and Sustainable World   July 2009

The new YES! homepage
We Have a New Website

Dear Reader,

I'm happy to announce the launch of our new YES! website.

This project has been over a year in the planning and execution. It uses an open-source platform, Plone, and was crafted by leading Plone developers ONE/Northwest and Web Collective, a worker-owned cooperative.

Designer Taylor Bachrach has given the site a beautiful new look. We've incorporated what you told us in last year's online survey, and your desire for more frequent YES! stories.

Here's a taste of the new features:

  • Explore ideas and solutions by the topics you've told us you care most about: the planet, economy, democracy, justice, arts, community, living, and peace.
  • Comment directly on stories—we want to hear back from you and make it easy for you to see what other readers are thinking.
  • Find related stories and supporting tools easily—when you are excited about a solution, you can dig deeper through additional visionary articles, individual stories, and tools you can use to share the concepts with others.
  • Enjoy fresh timely content every week, in addition to our quarterly magazine issues.

We're excited about the new web design, and we hope you will be too. Let us know how you like it.
