We’re incredibly proud to have won the Splash Awards 2017 in the category Tools and Apps and overall ‘Website of the Year’ award! The Splash Awards hand out rewards for the best Drupal-based projects and contributions from the Benelux Drupal community.

It makes us happy that our mission to power positive change across the globe resonates with the Dutch Drupal community. With 30.000 downloads since our beta launch in September 2015 and over 700 active installs globally, we are looking forward to continuing to support and work with the Drupal community to not only bring success to our Open Social distribution but to the open-source community as a whole.
Sustainable development for the UN
Our submission for the awards highlighted one of our successful projects; the GlobalDevHub.org project for the United Nations. This is a public platform which brings together 45.000 users from various legacy platforms. It hosts and supports open online consultations (or e-discussions) to help development actors gain important insights into policy discussions, generate new partnerships, and shape the international sustainable development agenda.
Because of its success, the UN has decided to use Open Social for a number of other new projects that will power debate surrounding their sustainable development goals.
