As CASwiki is part of Appropedia, you might first want to take a look at Appropedia's: Help:Contributing content and/or Appropedia:FAQ#Can I participate? Over time we hope to build up more help pages or sections more specific to CASwiki.

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

Sample place articles: Bristol community action, San Francisco community action, Nairobi community action

Topic articles[edit | edit source]

These generally provide a list of actions or community action 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, Community action on biodiversity

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
