NRDC’s “Fighting Polluters Since 1970”

Best Environmental Website

Since 1970, the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has been working to safeguard the earth—its people, its plants and animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. To mark its anniversary, NRDC launched an immersive storytelling experience featuring powerful stories and moments from the last 50 years. Our team partnered with NRDC to conceptualize how to capture these highlights in an engaging and informative story. The digital storytelling approach powerfully illustrates all that NRDC has accomplished—from landmark legislation to practical changes that benefit the environment and local communities every day—to inspire audiences to support its work into the future and continue to grow its impact.

The Frist Art Museum

Outstanding Website

The Frist Art Museum is a destination for art, culture, and community in the heart of Nashville, TN. Forum One worked with the Frist team to reimagine, redesign, and develop a new museum website in WordPress, with the goals of creating an engaging digital presence that inspires cultural curiosity and brings visitors back time and again for new and enriching experiences. 

City Health Dashboard

Health Care Standard of Excellence

The City Health Dashboard’s goal is to improve the health and well-being of people in communities throughout the United States. To do this, the dashboard provides city leaders and communities with an array of regularly updated data that is specific to neighborhood and/or city boundaries. Forum One designed and developed the City Health Dashboard with NYU Langone Health’s Department of Population Health to share and compare data on 37 measures of public health across more than 500 U.S. cities. 

Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation

Health Care Standard of Excellence

Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation is dedicated to advancing the mission of Children’s Hospital Colorado by providing family-centered care, conducting cutting-edge research and treatment to build kids’ confidence through their hospital sports program, providing family sleep rooms, and integrating art therapy into the healing process. Forum One and Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation began working together to leverage the Foundation’s digital ecosystem to position it as the charity of choice in the Denver area. We worked with them to rethink their digital ecosystem from the ground up and optimize how they are attracting, engaging, and growing their target audiences, including donors and supporters. 

The ALS Association

Best Associations Website

The ALS Association works to discover treatments and a cure for ALS while also improving the quality of life for people affected. Forum One partnered with Attain to guide the ALS Association through an enterprise digital transformation, including redesigning and 39 chapter sites, migrating its digital ecosystem from Luminate and Blackbaud into the Drupal 8 CMS, and integrating the website platform with the Salesforce CRM and the Classy fundraising platform to help the Association serve its multiple audiences and achieve its wide-reaching mission. 

I’m Determined 

Best Education Website

I’m Determined, a project funded by the Virginia Department of Education, connects youth – especially those with disabilities – with self-determining educational opportunities and resources to help them succeed in school, make friends, make decisions, and develop leadership skills. Forum One worked with stakeholders from I’m Determined and the James Madison University (JMU) Institute for Innovation in Health and Human Services to develop a comprehensive digital strategy, reimagine and redesign the program’s brand identity, and redesign and develop the website in WordPress to increase the program’s reach and impact. 

Environmental Standard of Excellence

Climatelinks is a global knowledge portal for USAID staff, implementing partners, and the broader community working at the intersection of climate change and international development. Forum One designed and developed the ClimateLinks website and provides analytics, engagement strategy, and content strategy support to the ClimateLinks team to help them build more active connections with users through their digital communications.
