Community Action Projects (CAPs for short), is a new (November 2022) section to CASwiki with a lot of potential for development. As this section grows it's hoped it can begin to do justice to the incredible richness, diversity and innovation of Community Action Projects worldwide.
Community action project is used here to mean any project with significant and meaningful community involvement. Some may be described as "community-led", others "community focused" or "community centred".
A variety of agents may begin a community action project. For example a CAN (Citizens action network) may undertake several. The process of making a CAN can itself be described as a community action project.
An example of a CASwiki Community action project article is Cohousing, but of course CAPs articles or subsections of topic articles can be started off with just a few items of relevant information.
