How to help[edit | edit source]

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

Place articles, topic articles or resource articles

Place articles[edit | edit source]

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.

Sample place articles: Bristol, San Francisco, Nairobi ...more via our CASwiki places portal

Topic articles[edit | edit source]

These generally provide a list of actions or project ideas which communities 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.

Sample topic articles: Community involvement, Climate action, Biodiversity ...more please see our CASwiki topics portal

Resource articles[edit | edit source]

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

Sample resource articles: Community resources, Networks, International sustainable community events ...more via our CASwiki resources portal
