About CASwiki

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? / About CASwiki - Join

Why grow CASwiki

"We start with the simple proposition that citizens should be able to influence decisions which affect the places and communities in which they live, work and visit."

Sustainability isn't just something for experts. It's about everyone's quality of life and we all have a part to play.

"... 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." [7]

CASwiki aims to help link up community and personal action for sustainability worldwide. ...more


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 29 Community action for sustainability topics (what we can do - see right hand column) and Resources to help action.
