How to integrate the registration on ChangeX in your own website
Here are a few examples:
EXAMPLE I - STREETFEAST
Street Feast is a yearly event when people across Ireland bring together their neighbours to share a meal and spend an afternoon together.
Streetfeast integrate direct links to ChangeX for people who want to host or join a Street Feast.
The links are on an extra page where they explain a bit more about how the two organisations work together.
You get to this page through a link „
host a feast
“ in a homepage teaser and in the top navigation.
The „HOST A FEAST“-link leads Street Feasters right to the registration on
where people will be asked to sign up/in and immediately enter the registration
process for a Streetfeast.
The best way of integrating ChangeX with your own processes and website depends on your specific needs and the functionality and structure of your website.
Most of our idea partners just add a link to their website that leads people, who are interested in starting a new group/chapter/event etc. right to the registration on ChangeX. Some also link to the location overview for people who might want to join a chapter instead of building a location search themselves.
The links to ChangeX are usually embedded on a separate page, that explains to people how to get involved in the initiative.
The „GO TO ONE“ link leads people to the locations page on ChangeX that lists all the public
The two links are image
les. But if your website allows to create buttons, that would be the
perfect link option.
EXAMPLE II - GIY, GROW IT YOURSELF
GIY is an Irish social enterprise building a movement of food growers. They are o
plenty of ways to get involved but at the heart of the movement are local GIY groups that are run
by local leaders who want to create support structures and local hubs where food growers of a
community share their knowledge and start food-growing projects together. As their own website
is focussing on many other initiatives they decided to host their GIY group communities on
Within the navigation point „
“ GIY o
ers many ways to join the movement. One
teaser titled „Start Or Join A GIY Group“ leads directly to the GIY page on ChangeX.
GIY also integrated the ChangeX logo to make it more transparent that they host their online-
communities on ChangeX.
GIY also run a yearly fund in cooperation with Energia called „Energia Get Ireland growing fund“.
One condition for applying, is registering a new GIY group. Within the fund application form they
also link to the ChangeX registration.
EXAMPLE III - PLASTIC FREE 4 SCHOOLS
Plastic Free 4 Schools is one of many community-based programmes that the social enterprise
„Change by Degrees“ is o
ering for people to get involved in. Change by Degrees is doing a lot of
work on raising awareness and giving practical guidance on reducing our carbon footprint on the
individual but also the community level. They only have a minimal amount of information on their
own website about the school programme and use their ChangeX page as the main landing page
for the idea.
The headline „ SIGN UP FOR PLASTIC
FREE 4 SCHOOLS“ and the bottom link lead directly to the Plastic Free 4 Schools page on
