Welcome to CASwiki's UK portal. Our focus is on Community Action for Sustainability. This includes community involvement through climate action, environmental action and many other sustainability topics.

The gift of climate and ecological emergency is that we all get to work together. Ordinary citizens and community groups naturally share what they learn, and what they know of what helps. Everyone can help, everyone has something to offer, everyone is welcome. We all need to design, make and grow a better future for ourselves, our communities and our world. Together we CAN. Yes we CAN.

About CASwiki[edit | edit source]

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?

"Only We CAN imagine and build the future that works for us all." [1]

Why grow CASwiki?

CASwiki aims to help link up community and citizen action for sustainability worldwide. Concerned citizens or community action groups of all kinds shouldn't need to feel alone or disconnected.

Knowledge sharing can help! It can help with finding contacts, making connections and networking. As well as information about places, CASwiki shares information and knowledge about many Community action for sustainability topics and Resources to help action.

Citizens should be able to influence decisions which affect the places and communities in which they live, work and visit. "... it was notable that the idea that having ‘agency’ (a sense of control over what happens in your local area), is a significant factor in people’s sense of wellbeing." [2]
