What

Community action for sustainability, or CASwiki, is information and knowledge sharing, but with a focus on what might be useful to community groups and active citizens. You can help. What can we do to make our communities more sustainable and in support of environmental, social and economic wellbeing? / About CASwiki - Join

Where

At any level from local communities through villages, towns, cities, countries, regions, continents or the whole world. Check out our current list of 269 locations. If the location you're interested in isn't there, can you help by sharing some information about that place in either an existing article, or through starting a new article? ...more

Why

"We start with the simple proposition that citizens should be able to influence decisions which affect the places and communities in which they live, work and visit."

Sustainability isn't just something for experts. It's about everyone's quality of life and we all have a part to play.

CASwiki aims to help link up community and personal action for sustainability worldwide. ...more
