Community action for sustainability or CASwiki articles are mostly of three kinds:

Place articles, topic articles or resource articles

CASwiki place articles[edit]

Place articles are by far the most numerous kind on CASwiki, reflecting our focus on community action and localism. They follow a roughly standard format and include details of sustainability initiatives, groups or projects, initiatives by topic, resources, events, news and further links.

To find out more please see our CASwiki places portal

Sample CASwiki place articles

CASwiki topic articles[edit]

These generally provide a list of actions or project ideas which communties can take or develop, and links to Resources. The articles might also include news and comment, or timeline sections. They include information about topics from a global or generic perspective which can provide a context for more localised information within the place based articles.

To find out more please see our CASwiki topics portal

Sample CASwiki topic articles

CASwiki resource articles[edit]

Including links to more extensive information, calendars, video, maps, infographics, apps for sustainability, social media links, research, funding information, etc.
