Website Construction (CMS-Based)

Project Details

What We Need
  • Development of a new website using a Content Management System (CMS)
  • Training to ensure Organization's staff members can update content and manage the site post-launch
  • Note: This project is for a website built with a Content Management System (CMS), such as Wordpress, Squarespace, Joomla, or Drupal. A CMS-based website can be maintained and updated easily (no coding required!)
Additional Details

We are staring a project called Migration in Harmony and will build a new website for the initiative. Migration In Harmony, launching in 2020, is a network to integrate discipline-isolated research on changing migration patterns in Arctic coastal areas to maximize cooperation and advance knowledge on the movement of peoples, economies, cultures, and ecosystems catalyzed by climate change, urbanization, and globalization. We need your help to build our new website!

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a visual design and UX/UI project complete, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have our design volunteer and a staff member to help you, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $16,822 , allowing us to to financially support the attendance of traditional knowledge holders, early career researchers, graduate and undergraduate students, and Alaska high school students in all events of the initiative.

There is a documented need to bring the Arctic's disparate research communities together, and in particular to "encourage more research on how species will move and interact in cold environments, the consequences for biodiversity, and animal and human health and wellbeing," so that cooperation can "facilitate rapid response, and maximize the use of limited research and management resources." Our Research Coordination Network meets that need by establishing a collaborative space to work together.

Our Mission

TAI envisions a world in which the Arctic’s diverse and complex sources of insecurity are identified, understood, and innovatively resolved. We hope to achieve this by informing Arctic policy across the circumpolar region through objective, multidisciplinary, and innovative social science research. We do this through publishing high-quality, open access research on a range of issues relating to security in the High North; providing innovative policy analysis and recommendations to policymakers a

What We Do

The Arctic Institute is an independent international institute dedicated to research of and engagement in the many dimensions of Arctic insecurity. Established in 2011, TAI provides data, analysis, and recommendations to policymakers, researchers, media, and the interested public. Based in Washington, DC, TAI’s network of research associates extends across North America, Scandinavia, and the European Union.
