Case Study

The Award Winning Climate Wise Communities

We were approached by Ku-ring-gai council to design and build a new website for their award winning Climate Wise Communities initiative. The brief was for an initial informational website plus a ‘Ready Check Tool’ that would help residents of the council to understand any risks or defence strategies that they may/should have during climate change situations such as bushfire, flood, storm or heatwave.

The tool had to be very user friendly and accessible, with several different features including an initial map of the resident address, and a following question and answer page on their personal situation. Then came a discovery of what their home strength and weakness may be for the various climate situations. Beyond that a discussion on the neighbourhood and finally an informational on different resources to help them further.

After some consultation with council and playing with different options, we settled on building it all within a form system. Using conditional logic we were able to incorporate responding answers (sometimes in different coloured font) within the question boxes and then at the end gave the viewer the option to print their answers to PDF.

The next stage of the website came with a new ‘What If’ game. Essentially, we created an old-fashioned chocolate wheel spiced up in JavaScript to spin a number of questions and then at the end give the viewer the option to use the Ready Check Tool or to ‘Ask an Expert’.

What if - climate wise communities questions

Both the website plus the tools and games have been a huge success with residents of Ku-ring-gai, and we have been tasked with implementing new systems to make the website even more interactive and fun to use!

After its success, two other Sydney councils came on board. Wollondilly Council and Ryde City both have new Climate Wise Communities websites for their residents.
